Rainy Day Adventures

Today was cold and rainy. Sara and Sky had their final music classes with Miss Wendy this morning. They both had fun in their classes, playing games and singing their favourite songs one more time! We'll start up again in September, but it will be so nice to have the summer break.

After lunch, Sara played with her friend, Alexa, from 3 doors down for awhile. Sky joined in too, and they had a lot of fun together, running around the house and laughing! Then, I played games on Facebook and took a shower, while everyone else watched T.V. Once my legs were swimsuit worthy, we packed up towels and goggles and headed to the swimming pool! We almost didn't need to rinse in the shower before getting into the pool, with all the rain pelting us on the way into the building! We swam and splashed and raced down the water slide, with a few breaks to warm up in the hot tub. It was a nice diversion for all of us, on such a yucky day. It's been such a wet spring.... After showers and dry clothes, we went to our favourite pizza place, Casa Mia's, for supper. We had some hearty appetites and managed to almost polish off an extra-large pizza! It was delicious, as usual! When we got home, it was time for dessert (Gooey Butter Cake - see post below), and jammies. The kids were exhausted and ready to sleep! Tomorrow is supposed to be another rainy day, so we'll see what adventures we can come up with!

The swimming sounds like fun!!!
We have the girls swimsuits for the season & 1 lifejacket. Need to pick up another. How did you end up in Canada? What time zone are you on?
The cake sounds yummy- maybe I'll make it for our bible study group this week. :)
(I usually have a bazillion & 1 questions when I try a new recipe, so look out!)

sounds like you made the best of a soggy day! We keep having Tornado warnings!! 2 in the past few days! (they always seem to be when the kids are napping and I haven't had my shower yet!)
