Bonus Day




Yesterday my oldest son turned five and we had a simple party at the park with 50 or so kids (it was simple, honest) and a scheduled visit from the MP ice cream truck/man. This is the best idea I've had in a while: nothing to bring with me or take home, no activities to plan except the truck visit. The kids seemed to love it. And my husband was so pleased with my restaint from planning a more elaborate (and ridiculously expensive) kids party that he granted me a swim this morning. Yippie.

*6 x 100: 1 is all free, 2 is 25 back, 3 is 50 back, 4 is 75 back, 5 is 100 back, 6 is all kick

*4 x 50: 25 back with first few strokes fast, 25 return free
*4 x 50: 25 back with first half length fast, 25 return free
*4 x 100: 25 back fast, 75 free

*200 free
*4 x 50s back on 1:10
*200 free
*4 x 50s back on 1:10
*200 free

*200 back
*4 x 50 fast free on 1:00

I don't know what I am more impressed with: voluntarily going to a workout that concentrates on backstroke or actually considering and completing a party for 50 kids!

How long did you have to wait until the party ended and the last child was picked up?

ha! are you kidding? kids were not "picked up" because they were not "dropped off". all parents were required to stay. i didn'thave to do a thing but organize the ice cream ordering in line :)

good news about the party, I realize that the question about the kids was a little naive, but it was more important for me to ascertain that you and you husband were not insane!
have a nice weekend and congrats on surviving the party.
