We got a lot of rain and clouds this week. It was actually nice. The pools were cooled off, the plants were watered, we all took a deep breath. Much needed! I read an awesome book, Beach Music- the perfect summer read! We rode bikes to two pool parties: the twins Birthday on Monday and a MOPS pool party on Friday. We did another beach day with the Thompsons on Tuesday. We had a boat day with my dad all day on Thursday. Sore from water skiing- like old times! I did some back to school shopping with Ellie at JNJ's. We had the swim team awards banquet. Marly was the high point winner for her age group! We had a fish dinner one night with fresh tuna from Aaron's Louisiana trip. We kicked off the weekend with golf and First Friday dinner with the Napoleons. I did a paddle board race on Saturday morning. I came in last place! That was a first for me! Still an awesome experience! We went to Mabel's Birthday party last night. Ice cream sundaes! This morning we went to mass and breakfast. Now, we're headed to Miami to visit Phil's family.
