Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

I think I tired them out.

Tonight, the girls, myself and a neighbor friend headed to Holland for some time with the cousins. Brown bag lunches at Cafe' de Boyink for dinner, a little play time and then off to the Holland Aquatic Center.

It was a great night to go! There was hardly anyone there and the rates are discounted for 'family night'. Our family had never been to this facility before. It is a very nice place and the rates are more than fair. It cost a whopping $16.75 for my clan of four. (compared to a $60 price tag at our local facility, but that's a whole other story ;) ).

After a brief awkwardness for Sarah, the neighbor, she and Miranda quickly took a liking to each other. They are both 10 and both love horses. Doesn't get much better than that! :)

We walked in the house at about 9-ish, had a quick banana to eat and got the girls ready for bed. Regan still had the chills, so I put each of their blankets in the dryer for about 5 minutes before tucking them in bed with it.

I have not heard a peep out of either one of them since! This isn't uncommon for Regan, but I honestly cannot remember the last time Sage went to bed and stayed there without coming out to go potty or tell us her latest woes!

A pleasant end to a fun day!
