The Albin Pool

Here we are at the pool in Albin. It is about 20 minutes from our house. For $12.50 a month you can join the community center and have access to a gymnasium, fitness center, and pool. Most days there is no lifeguard on duty and also no one there. So when we go we usually have the pool all to ourselves.  We get a key pass and can go anytime of the night or day. WOW!

Finishing the Lord of the Rings

After several years of night time reading we finished the series The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.  
To celebrate we got a projector, darkened the living room and spent the weekend watching the directors cut of all 3 movies. 11 hours of movies. We started with a cartoon for the little kids.

We ate pizza rolls, yogurt, pudding, mozzarella sticks, fruit roll ups, jello cups, granola bars, cheese its, applesauce cups, taquitos, and chicken nuggets. (All health food in Dad's opinion, All junkfood in Robin's opinion)

It was one of our favorite weekends of the year. : )
