an adventurous weekend

Hello again!
Hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's day, no matter what they did. I took the boy downtown on Friday night for fondue at The Skinny Pancake. It was delicious and we had a lovely time. We spent the morning together Saturday with Dunkin Donuts and a movie, and then I ditched and hopped on the bus to go downtown with my other valentines (swimmers, since we're all up here for this 4 day weekend). We spent the afternoon shopping for ourselves and ate dinner at the Church Street Tavern. It was delicious. After we got back we hung out, ate cake, and then headed off to the movie theater to see "He's Just Not that Into You." It was definitely good! A little long but we all loved it.

Yesterday was probably the most fun I've had all semester. The women's team all met a little before 12 and headed into Burlington to one of our teammate's houses for a delicious brunch of chocolate chip pancakes, bacon, and fruit salad. She lives right on the lake and so we went down to the shore and played on the ice (don't tell my mom). We skated around and even her dog came out with us. On our way back to campus (our car took a wrong turn and went the scenic way haha) we decided it was too nice to spend the day inside. Since the buses don't run on Sundays, we recruited a car to borrow and headed off to Williston to I-party and The Christmas Tree Shop. While there, we decided to buy a present for the guy who's car we we dressed it up like a bunny. See:

He obviously loved it when we brought it back (with a large pizza too). After we were done in Williston, we drove down to the waterfront and hopped out near the echo. We had no idea that the ice was going to be so frozen there, but people were walking out so far! So, we did too. Here's some pictures of us slipping and sliding around on the ice. It was so fun.

We got pretty cold after a while, and headed back up into town for some pizza before returning to campus in the bunnymobile. Later that night the girl's team got together for ice cream and a movie as a relaxing conclusion to a great day.

We've got practice again tonight and tomorrow, though both days there's no class. After practice tonight the whole team is going to Pizza Put for laser tag and unlimited pizza, so we know that'll be fun. The women are leaving Thursday afternoon for UMass Dartmouth for our championship meet. After that, the season's over for us and the men have one more week. It's been a great season and we're so excited for champs.

That's all for now. As always, keep the questions and comment coming here and through email to I love hearing from everyone!

I love Aidan's car. It's the best it's looked in a long time.

It was great seeing everyone this weekend at Roger Williams. All of you should be very proud of your performances.

Have a wonderful spring break.
