The Extreme Adventures of M.M. Cozy

Tall guy and Lace This weekend we went to Celebrate Fairfax. M.M.Cozy has been feeling a bit neglected lately so we brought her along. Like myself, she was feeling a little vertically challenged until she found this extremely tall fireman who agreed to pose with her. My kids got in the picture for a little perspective. The smile you see was unwavering and he never asked if I was nuts. My daughters were quick to inform him that it was one of “Mommy’s crazy knitting things.

flying spidey The day was gorgeous and sunny but windy. It was perfect ! We saw this in the X-Treme Zone at the fair. M.M.Cozy was way to chicken to try this one. “Go!” She told my kids. “It’s not really for me but you’ll love it.” The Drama Queen (on the left in back) and Stinkerbelle were more than up for the challenge.

The laser show was also a little too much for the tender disposition of M.M.Cozy. “It’s a little loud” she said. Well, Stink and I thoroughly enjoyed the show without her. Let her be a stick in the mud.

Lace on the Ferris Wheel As we left the laser show M.M.Cozy saw the ride she wanted to go on and couldn’t be deterred. Was it the Tornado – nope, too twirly. Could it be the Bobsleds – too fast. What about the Crazy Mouse – “are you kidding” she said, “that looks dangerous!” What caught the eye of our own extremely wimpy lace? The ferris wheel of course! Here is a picture of her taking in the sights from the very top of the wheel. It was quite a sight. Fortunately, teenage girls in the gondola with Stink, the lace, and I were too busy giggling and taking pictures of each other with a camera phone to notice the weird lady taking pictures of the knitting. Unfortunately, as we sat in our gondola at the very top of the wheel, Stink realized that she's afraid of heights. Oooops!

Sugar Ray Sadly, after all the excitement of the day, M.M. Cozy was too tired to watch Sugar Ray perform. She missed an extremely great show!

I'm a little bummed that your knitting got to see Sugar Ray in person. (Something I never got to do!) That's some lucky lace!

Wait, is that really a tall fireman, or is he on stilts? If the former, that's really something!

Your lace is looking great. I hope it enjoyed its day!
