When work was over, the birthday fun began when Mr. SP and I headed to the lake for the evening for a ride on our new boat. We tooled around for a few hours and then had a picnic dinner. It was a relaxing and most enjoyable evening.
We hosted a birthday party on Friday night to celebrate with our friends. The party was supposed to be outside, but it poured rain from 3:30 on forcing us to have the party inside. I had to do some quick scrambling to come up with a place for 15 to dine. Adding a card table to the end of our dining table worked just fine. I planned on making a floral centerpiece but the rain put a stop to that, too. Do you like my pig pot? I’ve had it since I was a child.
We crammed a lot into the weekend. We played tennis twice, planted our garden, made another trip to the lake, and ran a 10K race. We are both pretty beat! The race had great door prizes and we both won. I’m actually the winner because I’ll be the one to use both prizes. We won a $25 gift certificate to the local running store and a certificate for a pedicure at a local spa. Running in 90 degree heat was worth it for those prizes!
Four days of school until the end. This week I go on two field trips and then am at school for two days. I love the end of the year when testing is over and the kids can finally relax and have fun.
Have a great week!
