VBS and our weekend

This last week was a very busy week.  Hadley had swim lessons Monday-Thursday in the mornings and we had Vacation Bible School each night.  We had a fun time at both.  Swim lessons started out a little rough because Hadley didn't want to go under water.  They got much better as the week went on and she is actually looking forward to them this week.  We had a great time at VBS.  Both girls loved their classes and are asking when we can go again.  I helped in Arts and Crafts and was exhausted by the end of the week.  On the last night the kids put on a program.  Jillian was in the nursery all week so she wasn't in the program but still sang from our seats and danced during the program.  The sanctuary is not a great place for pictures so these are a little dark.

Friday was our day for doing nothing.  The girls and I didn't get out of bed until 8:30am.  Jillian woke up but I managed to get her to cuddle, play and watch tv with me until Hadley got up.  We had a relaxing morning of playing outside in the pool and with bubbles.  While we were at VBS all week Mike finished up staining our picnic table and getting our umbrella up.  We were very thankful for this on Friday.

Friday night we had a sitter come watch the girls so Mike and I could have a date night.  We went to dinner at Pei Wei and then went bunk bed and mattress shopping.  Doesn't that sound like an exciting date night?  Saturday morning I got up early to run and then brought donuts back .  We headed to the pool around 11 and took a picnic lunch with us.  The girls love being able to go to the pool with their daddy.  That afternoon Hadley and I went to a birthday party for her friend Tessa.  The party was at a gymnastics place and Hadley loved it.

We got home and Mike and Jillian were busying making us a great dinner.  They cooked us baked potatoes, grilled chicken and watermelon.  It was a great summer meal.  Sunday was church, lunch, naps and an ice cream social and hymn sing at church.  We had a great weekend and are ready for another week to begin.
