Beacherific Weekend - parte dos

As promised, here are the picture of the guinea pigs. Booger (Thing 1's piggie) is the white one and Mai (Thing 2's piggie) is the brown one. They really enjoyed swimming and would just swim in little circles. Trust me, they weren't way out in the deep water and they were just fine after their swim (I don't want to be flamed for animal cruelty as we are huge animal lovers in la casita de muse).

After their swim, they fluffed and dried off on the beach before we covered them with the umbrella so they wouldn't get sunburned. Sorry but no pictures of Mavis in the water since she's not allowed down there after 9 am.

This little buggie wouldn't leave me alone the entire time I was at the shore. I'd shoo him away and then find him on my towel, my leg (eek!) and twice he crawled into my knitting bag. I don't have the slightest clue what kind of bug it is and we've never seen one that looks like it before in our lives.

This seagull followed me too. Maybe he thought that my yarn was a tasty treat. He just kept coming closer and closer the longer I sat there.

And in case you're wondering, this is my progress on Cantaloupe since I came home. Still not quite finished with the back but I'm plodding along. I had to give my left wrist a break since I over did it by knitting at the beach AND on the way home (4 hour trip) in the car for about 8 hours non-stop. Ouch! Let's just say I was on a mission.

I've gotta get some birthday shopping done for Thing 2 who turns nine next Wednesday. We're thinking a laptop since he's always mooching ours. Anybody have suggestions for good quality, relatively inexpensive laptops? Anywho, I can't believe that my "baby" is so old. This time nine years ago, I was super bitch because I was already a two weeks past his due date and I was ready for it all to be over. To this day, that boy can't be on time for ANYTHING! Go figure.

I'll leave you with my attempt at an artsy beach photo.

I'm sad about no Mavis shots, but the other pictures made up for it.

I had no idea that guinea pigs could swim. It makes for a funny picture!

Your piggies at the beach made me giggle. I love it. I like the curviness of cantaloupe.
