Peanuts, (knit one, purl two) and Cracker Jacks
It was a perfect day for a ballgame. We started our day at Larry's house (the PSM). It was truly our glimpse at how the other half lives.
Wow, what a place. He's staying at a friend's place in South Beach. The coolest bachelor pad ever!!
They set up a dreamy spread of hotdogs (turkey dogs for me), potato salad, chips,
and of course . . . Peanuts and Cracker Jack:
Of course no Martha Stewart like baseball buffet would be complete without the traditional jockstrap flower arrangement (in the team's colors of course)
There was also a bitchin cool deck. We immediately started lounging in the sun.
The boys talking boy talk. The fabulous Jenny Lee Ramos catching some rays.
I'll never get used to a ballpark with palm trees out front and the ocean out back. Truly weird. When a homerun is hit it goes into the water and men in kayaks wait to scoop up the ball - not kidding
By the third or forth inning it was time for me to crack out the knitting. I'm working on Tempting II, and it's an ENDLESS amount of k1, p1 rib. Of course the cries of "I can't believe you brought your knitting to the ballgame", "look she's knitting", "I gotta get a picture of this" began.
That's Lauren looking at me like I have two heads, just because I wanna get a few rows in before the 7th inning stretch. Doesn't everyone???
The park itself was a bit like an amusement park. There were tons of bars and restaurants everywhere. I'm talking full bars too. I had an Irish coffee from a stand. Weird. There were batting cages, games, a giant slide (which I of course rode.) Here's me showing I'm tall enough to ride slide:
When I got home I finished the sweater for my sister. I'll post more pics of it (modeling it) in the next post. Here it is blocking.
