This past weekend, Alex and Ryan had their next-to-last swim meet. The last one that I'll be at, so it felt like the last one to me. They did well in their relay and individual freestyles, but both were disqualified for their butterfly and breast stroke. Fortunately, they don't really know what it means to get a DQ yet, so all was well. ;)
After the swim meet, Carl took Ryan to a birthday party for his friend Ryan. Ryan gets a big thrill out of the fact that he and Ryan have the same name, and enjoyed singing Happy Birthday to himself.
Alex's friend Gaelen came over for a play date. They swam, played on the wii, and played with every single toy in the house.
Later that night, we had our annual post 4th bash on the Cove with Jeff, Noel and Tatianna.
Sunday, we rested and watched the World Cup and rooted for Spain, sometimes a bit lethargically. Happily, they did not let us down.
And what would a weekend be without a visit to Target? I was intrigued by this copy of "Pride and Prejudice," clearly attempting to capitalize on the "Twilight" phenomenon.
I love the caption: "Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her." Sounds a bit more like Stephenie Meyer's writing style that Jane Austen to me. I personally don't think they need editions like this to woo over new readers to Jane. She can sell herself quite well, thank you very much.
