Summer and Grandkids

I just left my daughter's house where I got to hang out with two of my grandchildren for 2 glorious weeks. We went to parks, a company picnic, a Renaissance Faire and other fun things. I made my grandson a red tunic and belt so he could be a pirate at the Renaissance Faire. I won't be able to post photos until I get home from vacation, so stay tuned. My granddaughter looked adorable in the yellow hat I knitted for her.

My grandson, who is 2 1/2, and I both took turns painting in the backyard. I did 2 landscapes, and he seemed to be painting mostly dragons. Or so he said. Then of course it was time to play in the hose to wash all the paint off.

My son-in-law is going to need new tunics as well. He's been working out a lot and now his chest won't fit in his shirts! With two kids in diapers, I don't think my daughter will be sewing much for at least 2 years, so maybe I can do it. That is, if and when I get home and my sewing machine wants to cooperate. I think it's fun when the whole family dresses up for an event.
