Saturday morning I baked a Funfetti cake (with Little Man helping me to stir), and after getting dressed for the day, Little Man and I headed out while Hubby stayed home to work on his home fix-it project. First we went by the library to drop-off a book, then we went to Subway and picked up a sandwich to share. After that we headed to Michael's for some craft shopping (Little Man wanted pink glitter glue especially).
Then, with Little Man in his lobster swim trunks and his lobster t-shirt, we headed to the pool. We played and splashed for an hour and a half before having our picnic lunch. Then we sat for a few minutes before running through the water again.
After another hour at the pool, we headed home and Little Man took a mini nap while I got things done around the house, including icing the cake. When Little Man woke up I had him help decorate the cake with the stars and stripes sprinkles.
Little Man likes the icing best, so I let him lick the icing spatula.
The sides looked a little bare so we took stars and put them on the side. After our hamburgers and french fries we enjoyed our "birthday" cake (I decided since it was our nation's birthday, it could be considered a birthday cake...didn't use candles though!). Later, after Little Man was in bed (not sleeping though, he kept hearing fireworks and firecrackers), we watched the same movie we watch every July 4th...Independence Day with Will Smith. And while we watched I cast on my 2-at-a-time sample socks... to learn the method by Melissa Morgan Oakes.
I finally took photos of the gift tags I won through a Twitter drawing run by Knit It Up. Knit It Up does the Sock Yarn Cinema yarn line that I like so much, and on Tuesdays they do drawings or sales that are advertised only on Twitter. I entered a drawing and was able to choose which set of gift tags I liked from the shop. I chose Elegant Craft...
A handwritten note was on the back of the wrapping...
And inside the tin, are 25 tags to use for handcrafted gifts...a place for special care instructions is on the back of the tag. Aren't they lovely! You can grab up your own (or a different style) at the Knit shop at Etsy!
