Coming downstairs for breakfast I heard a lot of bustling activity from the kitchen.
"Morning Mom! Hurry up we have places to go. We're going to do something fun today." And with that my sweet little "O" continued to pack a picnic lunch.
"Where 're we headed sweet boy?"
Tremont is this beautiful little place in the Smoky Mountains and home to the Smoky Moutain Research Center at Tremont.
Last year O had gone to camp there and had such a good time. He wanted to share a little of that with his mom.
First a stop to the council house is made to speak our intentions. "We are planning to make rock paint before lunch", the young "O" stated.
And as tradition dictates, one can not eat their lunch or any meal for that matter, at Tremont without having decorated theimselves with rock paint.
It was such a nice occasion to have "O" create such a lovely excursion from his own design. I can honestly say after painting myself before lunch that I felt dressed properly for the picnic. Such a beautiful sight to sit and enjoy with my sweet boy.
I have to confess that I did take some knitting with me. Here's a look at this week's KAL which I'm doing with Linda. I'm almost ready to start binding off for the armholes. Next week I hope to have a body on this giant version of the Shalom sweater.
The horrible heat of last week has left and so now I'm off to work in my garden. See you tomorrow!
