After the party my hubby found this at Home Depot as he was browsing around! Just noticed I cut off the one side of it but liked this pic because of hubby's happy smile! Put it together and grilled some yummy chicken on it! We've needed a new one for over fourteen years...we've been using one we bought at a garage sale for $5 and looks like its on its last leg!:)

Jimmy with his ribbons and trophy! Very tired boy today!:)
Had a blast at the Oasis Banquet. It was a potluck so all the families brought yummy things. Kids were able to play and swim. After the trophy ceremony they had karaoke and marshmallow roast! The trophy ceremony was very emotional because the head coach is having to go to Mongolia for 4-10 months...very sad for all the kids. When he passes out the trophies he always says something about the child he's giving it too...how they've improved through the year etc... Fun time! Very tired and exhausted from such a long day/night!

Started back to swimming today...haven't swam since November! Whew, I can barely type this out....way tired!:) I was quite excited to make it across the 25yd pool! Did about 10 laps and then 2 cool down laps. Want to gradually work back up to an hour swim...didn't want to push it like I usually do and get sick again! It felt soooo good though I didn't want to get out. Jimmy's such a great coach and would correct my hands etc. to make sure I'm doing it right!:)
On the knitting front I'm almost finished with the Retro Redux Shrug and slowly crocheting on the baby blanket. My hands just can't tolerate too much crocheting. Was thinking on casting on for the Haruha scarf that Dawn is doing, its sooo pretty. Gotta go lay down before I fall down!:)

This holiday is one of love. Its romantic (and lovely) that this holiday evolved from an ancient love story from Chinese folklore. There are several versions of the story.
The Goddess of Heaven (also known as the Queen of Heaven) had seven beautiful, young daughters. The seven daughters came down to earth. They decided to bathe in a pristine river, leaving their clothes on the shore. Along came a cow herder (the herd were actually ox) named "Niu Lang". He took their clothes to see what they would do. The daughters decided that the youngest, and most beautiful, named Zhi Nü should go out of the water and recover their clothes. Because Niu Lang saw her naked, they had to get married. They fell madly in love, and shared several years of marital bliss.
Finally, her mother became irritated by her absence from Heaven, and ordered her to return. Seeing how much Zhi Nü missed her husband, the Jade Emperor of Heaven brought the couple back together. Ultimately, Zhi Nü was allowed to visit her husband, Niu Lang just once a year. The annual reunion occurs on the 7th day of the 7th month of the Lunar Calendar. Taken from Holiday Insights.

Jimmy's ortho appt. went well yesterday. Very relieved he doesn't have to have four permanent teeth pulled like his dentist thought, whew. Such a relief! He also started back on the swim team last night. Hasn't swam in quite awhile so was a very tired boy last night! He has a meet coming up on the 16th so has to get in shape for that. Then that evening the team is having their yearly banquet where the kids receive a trophy, get to play and have a yummy potluck all together. Its always great fun for the parents and kids!
Today is our dog, Gypsy's birthday, she's turning 9!:) She got a yummy bone, a stuffed slice of pizza with a stuffed Parmesan bottle! Gotta go work on getting the school year planned out!
