Pools Open + Happy Mothers Day

We have been having such nice weather lately, and no soccer today, at least we didn't go to any games.

Made breakfast for Sue and the boys this morning.  Bacon, Eggs, Corned beef hash, and pancakes.

We watched the Manchester City game, a real nail biter as QPR had taken a lead and it seemed that no matter what Man City threw at them, they could not equalize let alone win.  In the last 5 minutes of stoppage time, Man City tied, and took the lead.  The win secured them a the championship.

This day in history "Some 100 English colonists arrive along the west bank of the James River in Virginia to found Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America. Dispatched from England by the London Company, the colonists had sailed across the Atlantic aboard the Susan Constant, Godspeed, and Discovery.
Upon landing at Jamestown, the first colonial council was held by seven settlers whose names had been chosen and placed in a sealed box by King James I. The council, which included Captain John Smith, an English adventurer, chose Edward Wingfield as its first president. After only two weeks, Jamestown came under attack from warriors from the local Algonquian Native American confederacy, but the Indians were repulsed by the armed settlers. In December of the same year, John Smith and two other colonists were captured by Algonquians while searching for provisions in the Virginia wilderness. His companions were killed, but he was spared, according to a later account by Smith, because of the intercession of Pocahontas, Chief Powhatan's daughter."

For several years in a row, when the kids where younger we visited Jamestown, and stayed at a resort called Powhatan.  If it wasn't for the long long drive, and other commitments around the spring break we would visit again.

We go to a neighbors house for lunch and a party.  The new neighbors down the street are friendly with Luke, so we go an invite to Kyle's first communion.  Philippino specialties abounded including a whole roasted pig.  I have to get some recipes.

Had just enough time to open the pool in between the party and dinner.  Sue wanted Sushi, so we went out after she got home from church.

Happy Mothers Day
