Went shopping and to a nursery yesterday because Jimmy and I are planning a fairy garden. Went to a couple $1 stores and bought knick knacks and stuff for it. Going to be really fun. Also working on all the plants/trees we've bought. Weekends are the only time for extra stuff because so busy with school and swimming. I was even coached last night...he changed my freestyle stroke (which at first was awkward but now its easier) and also worked on my breast stroke. Might try to go today so I can practice what he told me, also to work out the stiffness from using different muscles!:) Then theres the weekly cleaning chores, school grading reports....need to find some knitting time!:) Have a wonderful weekend!

Then went to an herbal garden...Summers Past Farms. Had an awesome time here, very pretty. I bought a bunch of homemade soap and even got a soap making kit. So excited to try this out too. Lots of beautiful plants and scenery....huge pumpkin patch right behind us too! After this we went to another yarn store...icky and didn't buy anything. It was barely a room size, dark and very unfriendly..people didn't even say hello! That ones off my list!
Here's another CA fish...Jimmy! He loved this..of course its water!:) Last year he swam the rough water swim here in La Jolla but didn't want to do it this year, just wanted to play and enjoy himself.

After Jimmy showered and changed went to Balboa Park...there's over 13 museums here!
This is the botanical garden we went too. Just beautiful.

James getting everything hooked up! Of course I snap the picture as he's hooking up the poop shoot!:) Jimmy below getting ready to ride his bike around the campground. After we got everything leveled and hooked up we went on a walk. Found the indoor theatre, game room, kitchen, laundry room, fitness center and of course the heated pool/jacuzzi! Jimmy and James played ping pong and billiards then we all went swimming together! After we changed went to McDonalds for dinner. Then we had to go to Staples because James needed a cord for the tv and while he was in there Jimmy and I went to Petsmart next door. The coolest Petsmart ever...it had an animal hotel which looked like something out of Beverly Hills...very posh! Of course I got Fuji an adorable stuffed dog toy in a swim team outfit and a bone. Gotta make up for leaving my precious, sweet baby. She's in good hands though with Grandma!:) Gonna go boogie boarding and swimming with the fish today...whoohoo!:)

Another year to create precious memories together. Another year to discover new things to enjoy about each other. Another year to build a life rich in love and laughter. Another year to strengthen a marriage that defines "forever."

3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.
Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged.
Okay, Dawn the one who tagged me. Not going to tag anyone...if you want you can answer on your blog! Let's say like Nell, Leesa, Meghan, Alana, Marisol, Tammy, Jackie, Carol....
Here are my 6 quirky things:
1. I love to swim but can't stand to have water on my face in the shower!
2. I can't stand when those in my family throw trash on the counter when the trash can is right there...why? why? :)
3. I hate wrinkles on my bed sheets...they have to be smoothed out before I get in. Yes, I can feel them like the princess with the pea!
4. Like to have my salad dressing in a container so I can dip my fork into it instead of it all over my salad making the lettuce limp and soggy!
5. I sleep better when the room is cool and my fan is making a clicking noise. If not the fan then either the humidifier or sound machine noise.
6. I hate to pump gas in the car....thats hubby's job! Just one of those weird hang ups of mine!
Master's swim was cancelled last night because we need to get USA swim card so were insured when we're swimming. Bummer! The pool I usually do laps in is closed for a month so had to go to an outdoor pool today. So weird swimming outside! That sounds quirky doesn't it!? Have to go to Sports Chalet and get a new swim cap cuz mine broke today...had to wear a neon green Oasis cap, which made me stick out like a sore thumb. Gotta get Jimmy ready for swim team practice. Have a great day!

Planted 5 trees this weekend in our yard...starting to look like someone lives here! Maybe the landscaping people will stop putting their cards in our mailbox!:) Whats wrong with dirt? :)
Tonight the Masters swim team starts....going to give it a shot even though my mouth is hurting...ooh shot bad choice of words!
Guess what? I won a contest on Alana's blog! You had to leave a comment about a funny sweater story on her blog and I won! I get either a magazine or her adorable sock pattern. So cool. Her podcasts are really good so check her out sometime!
I started another baby blanket (crocheted) and working on the Froggin' socks every now and then. Haven't done much of either one. Tootles!
