Sunday with MrRose's family...

We spent the day with MrRose's family yesterday. They have a lovely home and family, and they sure know how to have fun!

As we drove up there was a volleyball game in progress, which we were welcomed to join in right away... (This photo was taken of the game played after our delicious BBQ dinner... little 6'5" DS in blue)
Players aged 6 to 50... 8-)
Then it was decided to take DD2 & MrRose's "new" older boat for a test drive, so off we all went to a pond a mile down the road.

Getting ready to lower it into the water here...
A boat full, and a few of the kids in a canoe in the background...
DD2 doing her queenly wave while MrRose puts on his life-jacket...
Safety first! 8-)
The little boys were showing off their minnows that they were catching. (which they released no problem before we went back to the house)

...et moi... on the boat...
At dinner time there were 16 of us. DH & myself, DS & MissLocks, DD2 & MrRose, and the rest was his family plus one in-law. Absent were his 2 older siblings and their families, as well as our DD1 and MrFarmer...

Here is some after supper fun... Skipping was one of the topics at dinner, about how a lot of boys/men don't know how to skip. We had a good time watching as many of the children (and adults) had to prove something about that through the house... We all had a good laugh.
Here is a sampling of the "skipping" that was done outside later...
Warning, don't have your sound on too loud...

Oh but we had a wonderfully fun day with MrRose's family!!!
All the fresh air, wind, and sun got to DS and MissLocks. They slept the 1.5 hours drive home... 8-)

On the stitching front, here is a secret sampling photo of my addition, row #2, for my city group's Row Robin Project... It was fun to make, and I am looking forward to our "row robin pizza box" exchange this coming Wednesday! There is 9 of us involved, plus a list/box keeper.
Seven more trades before we see our own pizza box come back to us... No one knows who's project is who's, so it is all a surprize... but fun to guess at!!! 8-)

Newest fabrics to my collection...
Happy stitchings!
