Thursday - Swimming, playing at the park and a retirement party

Because of the holiday Monday, last week was a short week. Short weeks always confuse me and I'm not sure why, but I can tell you that all Thursday I thought it was Friday. We had what's become our usual breakfast of pancakes and were playing when I realized the kids had swimming lessons in 15 minutes. Gah Thursday! We raced around and got to the pool and in the water only a couple minutes late.

After swimming I let the kids play at the nearby park because I knew we didn't have to rush home to have lunch before getting Little J on the bus. The park was pretty fun but the best part was a tire swing. The park near where I grew up had one and I spent hours and hours on that thing so I was excited to share it with my kids. They loved it! Giggling the whole time going around in big circles and then screaming when I spun them.

We didn't have to rush home because Little J didn't go to school Thursday. We had a party to go to mid-afternoon so we had lunch and got ready to go. This party required me to dress up a little which was fun. We picked J up at work and headed downtown.

In the navy everyone gets a party when they retire. J's dad had his three years ago right after Little K was born and his mom had one too. This was for J's uncle D and it was a great chance to see a lot of J's family and get out of the house. We capped off the evening with dinner out.

So Thursday totally felt like Friday but my Friday was pretty good too.....
