Willy Nilly Friday 5 #1 - Anniversary Park

(click on photo to enlarge)
Anniversary Park, Williamsburg

If you remember the reason we were in Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown a couple of weeks ago was so Nick could participate in the triathlon. First leg is a swim in the James River. He's one of those guys in the red caps. First group, green caps which are made up of military and younger guys, are just ahead, already swimming.

So now for some Friday 5's:

1) On Wednesday I took the boys to see the Lego movie. It was really cute. We laughed a lot. Regal Cinema has a summer movie special for kids. For the list CLICK HERE

2) This guy proves that there are people out there who care

3) I came up with a great idea (for me) to store recipes in Pinterest for my weekly menu. I make a new board each week labeled "Menu for the week of month/date" and new recipes I want to try out from the internet, I just pin to that folder. In the past when I want to try a new recipe, I would forget where I found it. Now it's tucked right there in my menu board!

4) Want to see some pretty pictures: CLICK HERE to see Bing's Photo of the Day Gallery.

“I like dogs
Big dogs
Little dogs
Fat dogs
Doggy dogs
Old dogs
Puppy dogs
I like dogs
A dog that is barking over the hill
A dog that is dreaming very still
A dog that is running wherever he will
I like dogs.”
― Margaret Wise Brown, The Friendly Book

  9. I hope your dh did well in the race- swimming the James sounds like hard work! I completely forgot about your WNRF..drats! I'll link up next week!

  10. love your handsome ozzy! thanks for sharing the kindness video, too.

  11. Love your shots and am looking forward to this new meme. I have been missing a fun Friday post as this is my day off, and a good day to remember anything random or willy nilly! Thanks for hosting this and will be fun!

  12. Love that you are doing this link up!

  13. I find it really impressive to do a triathlon. And I'm sure he would say he couldn't do it without his "team" support.

  14. How lovely finally a replacement for Nancy's Random Five. I love dogs too, especially big ones. Love your Pinterest menu idea planning.

  15. Ozzy is a handsome dog. Love the poem. Thanks for taking over the Friday 5. I'll try to link up now and then.

  16. That looks like a long swim.

    Ozzy looks in fine form!

  17. Very cool shot on top. Great colours.

  18. Love that first shot. I heard the Lego movie is hilarious.

  19. Bull Moose Music store here had a Legos 'firewalk' to celebrate the movie. It was a 20 foot boxed in collection of scattered legos. There was a LONG line of kids and adults wanting to talk the 'walk'. Ever walk on just ONE in the dark? Then you might get the 'pain' involved in this. hahahaha
    Your boys would have loved to try iy.

  20. Great start! Congratulations to Nick too on an amazing achievement! Will join with Willy Nilly soon, I promise!

  21. Well done, Nick. Thanks for the Pinterest tip too. You are so organized :).

  22. How did your husband do in the triathalon again? I'm sure I wouldn't be strong enough for that! Just thinking about all that "work" wears me out! :)
    Hope you had a nice weekend.

  23. Got to have a lot of stamina for a triathlon he Tanya, well done to your son. Loved the video of the guy giving homeless people new shoes and in some cases the shirt of his back, so good to see.

  24. What a great post. Congrats to your husband…..that is quite a feat.
    The 'shoe' video was touching and inspiring!!!! I love Ozzy!
