I had the best day on Saturday. It's not often that I say that because usually, for me, the weekends are all about rushing to get all of the errands done that I don't have time for during the week. Or shuttling the kids to birthday parties that are overcrowded and stressful. For the most part, come Sunday evening, I am exhausted. But...this past Saturday was exactly what a Saturday is supposed to be.
It started off with me taking Chatterbox and Giggles to their very first swimming lesson. Sitting poolside, cheering my babies on as they learned to blow bubbles underwater and kick (i.e. splash the crap out of their instructor) to their heart's content was great. Indoor-pool-chlorine-headache and all. Next we made a quick stop at Target to pick up a birthday gift for my friend's son. (Note to Target: I think it's great that you're remodeling our local store, but really? Do you have to completely reorganize the aisles in the entire store? Why are the feminine poducts clear across the store from the rest of the toiletries? Hmm?)
Then it was off to the birthday party. Hubby and L'il Buddy met us there. The party was at our local pool, which is eight counts of awesome. Suffice it to say that we spent the next 3 hours lounging around and in the water. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, the kids were having a blast and the adults even got a chance to relax. At one point, Hubby and I even found ourselves floating around the lazy river in tubes sans children. We don't know how it happened but we were able to joke and chat and hold hands like teenagers, uninterrupted, for a good 11 minutes! After the party we all went for an evening drive and out to dinner. A perfect ending to a wonderful day.
Ah Saturday. When can I see you again?
