It has been a long day! But a great day!
We had a ladies fellowship pool party this afternoon. It was so hot and it was just nice to float around and catch up with people. It’s so hard to make time to just spend time together without having something you have to do or somewhere to be next. I still can’t swim but I can sure float on a noodle. : ) And Michelle was astounding us with her diving prowess! You go, girl!
Then this evening I took my favorite eight year old to see “March of the Penguins”. I found it quite interesting…especially the part about how the female penguins produce the egg and then the males take care of it until it hatches! I bet some of you moms wish you could have passed off that period of time, too! Overall, I thought it was a good movie. It feels surprising to be watching something like that in a theater – it’s pretty much the kind of documentary you might see on Animal Planet or Discovery Channel but very well done. And Morgan Freeman’s narration is just so calming – he has a great voice!
Afterwards, we went to Friendly’s for our traditional meal and a boatload of ice cream. Ah, how I love the Hunka Chunka PB Fudge…yum….
Tomorrow is another busy day. I have to teach in Adventure Theater in the morning and then we have a first birthday party to go to. Speaking of which, I guess I should get my stuff together for the day – mornings are NOT my specialty. Much better to get ready the night before.

Hello there! Thanks for writing about that movie. I tink I will go see it soon. You made it sound very good. I like that films like that are finally getting big screen play. Have a great weekend and smile!
I miss Friendly's ice cream!!! The only thing we have out here is Dairy Queen and Baskin Robbins. We do have Cold Stone Creamery, which is a step up, but nothing beats a Jim Dandy Sundae!!! I really miss the food on the east coast!!!
Shannon – Cold Stone Creamery ROCKS!!!!! That has to be the best ice cream I have had!
If men had to carry the babies, we woldn't have many new babies in the world! I think Pengiun men ROCK!! hehe
Also, I love Frienldy's ice cream — had a sundae on Friday as a matter of fact!
