While the cat's away...

...the mice play. This is what we did this week.

The boys ordered some costume accessories from a catalog (after about 3 months deliberation). The stuff arrived on Tuesday. Adam, of course is a Knight.

Finlay, equally naturally, is a pirate. Personally, I think he gives Johnny Depp a run for his ducats.

On Wednesday we had a tea party. A&F had been asking about drinking tea - so we decided to have a special party with cakes from Icing on the Cake.

On Thursday we went to Bonfante Gardens. Adam took this picture of Finlay and I on the Ferris Wheel (!!!).

They also had fun in the waterfalls. Adam went around three times and got soaked, but since it was sunny we all dried out quickly.

Finally, of course there was some knitting (and a lot of watching of Footballers Wives). Finlay has his own socks.

My usual basic sock pattern scaled as for Adams socks except I made the top of the ribbing red so they can tell their socks apart. I also made the entire cuff ribbed as his legs are skinnier than Adams although their feet appear to be about the same size.
