A fun Friday

Mike usually has Friday off, but a few weeks ago had agreed to fill in for someone today. That wasn't problematic until his new gig in NYC started a little earlier than expected, and it looked like he was going to have a ridiculously long work week. Lo and behold, he got a phone call last night from the guy for whom he was filling in, and it turned out that they weren't going to need Mike after all. It was like getting a notice for a snow day at 10 the night before! So we immediately got online to find some fun stuff to do today. We went to the library in Hopewell, a little town just to the north of us, for kids' music time with a lady named Pat McKinley. W had been to hear her before, at our library here in Lawrenceville, with Mike, and he seemed to like it. So we went and he seemed to have a good time. Afterwards we went to the town just next to Hopewell, Pennington, and walked around and got a blueberry muffin and some lemonade and sat on a bench and watched the cars go by. W seemed to have some energy to run out at that point, so we hopped in the car and headed to the park that's right by our house. There are several soccer fields for him to run around on, as well as a nice play ground and good toddler swings. Needless to say, he was ready for a nap once we got home.
I think I could use one too!
