$500 of fun

It costs a lot of dough for a full-fledged family membership at the YMCA. Now, I’ve been pretty consistent about using the Y as a place to work out. (Although I haven’t gone back yet since spring break ended. It’s so hard to get in the habit!)

But the kids talked me into going to the YMCA in Donalson over the weekend. That particular Y has the added benefit of a heated indoor pool. I was really surprised that they’d lengthened their hours to 9:15. They used to close around 8:30 which meant that the kids could swim for very long. But they got a nice long round of swimming and fun in.

Before the YMCA, we made a quick dinner stop at the new Chick-fil-a in Hermitage. One of Dylan’s friends works there, but we didn’t manage to scam any free food. Chick-fil-a is one of my favorite places in terms of the quality of the food and staff. But they ain’t cheap!

The swimming trip was mostly for the little girls to get out and stretch their legs some. They had a lot of fun. Anna Lynn is a good swimmer on her own, but Katie Jo still needs more practice and training. She was really thrilled when she swam about 6 feet without a life preserver or floaty. I was so proud of her.

Well, there’s not too much else shakin’ in my world. Hope yours is fun…




  1. Yuuuuuuuuum, Chick-Fil-A’s are rare around these parts. People actually think they are a new concept. I spent my teen years at that place in Parkway City Mall. When I wasn’t eating a chili cheese dog from Orange Julius. You know, back in the day when we could eat whatever we wanted and still be a beanpole. Now I’m hungry.

  2. LOL! I’m hungry too for a big ol’ Orange Julius!
