Irony and Charity

This weekend we finally held the end of season party for Stinkette's softball team. After days of glorious sunshine, it rained a bit the day of the party. How ironic that a season cut short by rain was celebrated on a rainy day.

Anyway, it was a great party. We ate and talked and the kids ran around and had fun. The rain didn't slow us down at all.

Movies Under the MoonOn Saturday night we attended a great local event called Movies Under the Moon. It's held in a local park where all are welcome to put down a blanket and pillows and watch a movie. On Thursday we saw Twilight again (even more giggle-worthy the second time) and Saturday we all saw the Dark Knight for the first time. Wow! What a great movie! It made me miss Heath Ledger all over again.

The event is actually a fundraiser for the hospital where Stinkette was treated for Shigella almost 2 years ago. The proceeds from much of the food sold there goes to the hospital.

The weather was perfect for an outdoor movie and we all enjoyed ourselves. While waiting for the movie to start DQ read, DH and Stink played frisbee and I cast on for a new project. And then on Sunday I cast on for another. Evil startitis!

I hope you had a good weekend.

Sounds like a good weekend.
Mine was very nice too - visited with friends on Saturday and vegged around the house knitting on Sunday. Perfect :-)
