Senior night, a delicious chicken sandwich, and the last regular season swim meet...

 This week we celebrated Senior night for all the winter sport athletes.

Dan's arm is mid-swing but other than that I think this is a cute picture!

Here is Sarah with her swim besties:

And while we were in the gym, I had to snap a picture of Sarah's senior poster:

After the recognition, Sarah went to dinner with her friends so Dan and I grabbed dinner together. We tried Bossy Beulah's Chicken Shack and it did not disappoint! It's a fast food restaurant serving only chicken and fries. Dan got the regular chicken sandwich (with house made pickles and mayo - so basically a Chick-fil-a sandwich only better if that's possible) and he gave it two thumbs up. The chicken is from a local farm.

I had what they call the "Hot Thigh" and it was so delicious I wish I had one right now.  It was a fried thigh that was coated in hot sauce with mayo and pickles.  YUM!  And the fries came with a spicy dipping sauce and they were equally delicious! When Sarah found out we went there without her she was upset.  "You know I've been wanting to go there!"  Well, now we have to go back!

Last night was Sarah's final regular season swim meet.  She swam great and finished first in her backstroke and shaved a couple seconds off her individual medley (where you swim 50 meters of each stroke). She was very happy with that as she doesn't like to swim the IM and any time shaved off is a victory! Her relay teams finished well too,  1st and a 2nd!

Here is a picture she took after the meet.  

Next Friday will be regionals and hopefully she will do well enough to make it to states in at least one event the following weekend. Fingers crossed!

We are supposed to get another 1 to 3 inches of snow here this weekend.  BOO!!!!!!!!!!! But it should be in the 40s on Sunday so whatever we do get will start to melt.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - I don't like snow.  But, I'm not going to complain (too loudly) because Boston is supposed to get up to TWO FEET of snow this weekend.  Even the Cape is supposed to get a bunch of snow and a lot of wind - potentially 60 mph. Hopefully the little Cape house will survive!

That's all the news around here that's fit to print.  Have a great weekend!
