happy MAY day (mayday mayday)

this photo is of big gurl at the ocean...

tee hee.

People were a little surprised to know I went back to work today. Very glad I did as there was plenty of work and yesterday - the 30th of April is tax return deadline (if you owe - if you don't owe, you can file later, but be prepared to not receive certain tax based credits upon time). I had forgotten that until I drove to work this morning. When I first started with CCRA I had to work right up until 5:00 pm on filing day - oh wait a minute I was on maternity leave and recuperating from the Big Gurl's birth the day before. She is now 7, celebrated in Florida at the Animal Kingdom of Disney. No photos on my camera from that day. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. Here are some sweet pic's of the week.

Big gurl just after she was knocked over by the wave (one got me too when I wasn't looking, however I managed to stay upright - just wet to the knees for the next 5 hours. Why is it we pack plenty of extra clothes for the kids but none for ourselves?)

At the Brevard Zoo, with the animated Dinosaur exhibit (this was after the total panic attack because wallet was NOT in purse and mad dash back to entry where a wonderful woman had turned it in to the lovely park staff - alcohol was not consumed until much later that evening, but stress was high)

With Piglet at the character lunch at the Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom - totally awesome food and we saw Piglet, Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore.

The Palace with one of the performances. My flickr stream has prettier pictures (I think THIS is the link). Many other photos were taken by Nana and Pop-pop - they are sending a disc and updates will be posted after that.

re previous post on Wal-Mart yarn It is not that I don't like Wal-Mart, but I felt it was not the place to obtain vacation yarn - special treat for me. I'm thinking of picking up these cards instead. Or perhaps the yarn to make this?

Of course I could just stash dig or make something with this:

Scout's Swag in Rowing Home, inspired by Winslow Hormer, 100% superwash merino. I love the pink/grey combo, but am unsure how the yellow will turn out. Thinking of knitting it up to see...

And finally, my beautiful little gurl, at her quietest... asleep on Pop-pop.
