We had a busy week with family visiting, including our grandson - almost 6 months old.  We all took turns playing with him, keeping him interested in a variety of toys etc.  He loves to be on his feet, but his exersaucer only keeps him happy for a short time.  I know my DDIL2 enjoyed having 3 other adults around to amuse the little one.  It make DH and I appreciate all that our parents did for us when our sons were small - lots of visits!

I did manage to find the time to make a stroller organizer, using this pattern.  Lots more sewing than I anticipated, especially when I was on snuggle duty lots over the past week+.  The instructions were well written, and it looks great on the stroller.  I took some quick pictures as they were packing......

The  front has one large zippered pocket, and two shorter pockets.

The back has a large mesh pocket.  
It is difficult to see in the pictures, but there are open pockets on each end as well.
The interior has two large pockets on one side and three on the other.  Great for holding diapers, wipes, bottle, snacks etc. 
Here it is hanging from the handle of the stroller.  The straps are adjustable, and have clips that attach to D-rings on each side.  It is easy to take off, and is washable, of course.  Their stroller has a bright yellow top, so we chose some fun fabric to coordinate with it!

During their visit, we went to Fort Henry, swimming in our friends' pool, visited Busker Fest in Kingston, and spent a day at DSIL's  cottage, with a boat ride around the lake and a quick dip to cool off.  Our little one wasn't too thrilled with the cold water, but liked sitting at the edge, with the gentle wash of ripples splashing on his feet!
