A Whirlwind Weekend

How does it happen that you get one day added to the weekend, you think you'll have that extra day to relax, and it becomes just as busy and full??? That's what having friends is all about, isn't it? Extra time to get together and have fun.

The weekend started with a swim meet. Both kids swam. Not too many shots of Hannah because I was too busy yelling at for her......

Some breaststroke:

Here is my Connor getting up on the blocks ready to race. It's hard to believe that I have two swimmers. I always think of Connor as the soccer player - he is a good little swimmer though, too!

A little backstroke:

A little breaststroke:

After the meet on Saturday, we hosted the Scorpions end of the season party. What a great ending to an UNDEFEATED SEASON - Peter Piper Pizza, games, pizza, cake and trophies. Here is Coach Bill, Assistant Coach Jaime, and their nine boys! Well, eight. One boy was MIA.

Bill, Jaime and Connor:

More swimming on Sunday. Connor did his first ever Long Course (50 meters) butterfly. He was not happy with having to do it - but got through it just fine. What topped of the meet for him was finding out that he took 5th place over-all for Boys 8 years and under. Not too bad for a 7 year old!!! Congratulations Connor.

And then Miss Hannah - got herself Runner Up High Point (#2) for Girls 10 and under. Do you think she's happy about that??

Here she is with her friend Nikki who took 1st place.

And lastly, yesterday, we just barbecued with Chris, Allison and James and some friends. It had to have been one of the best "weather" days outside yesterday. Just beautiful. Great day to celebrate our friends birthday!

Happy Birthday Jennifer!
