A Great Father's Day Weekend!

Wow, what a great weekend! It started off great by getting out of work early on Friday and getting a little nap while the kids napped :)

Friday night my daughter and I watched High School Musical 1 and 2 off and on while doing each other’s hair. Then for some reason hubby decided to sleep on the couch and watch TV, so I had two little friends spend the night with me :)

Saturday my daughter’s game was cancelled (but unfortunately I was already awake, so I couldn’t go back to sleep). We did some work around the house and then headed out to find hubby’s Father’s Day present. See, I had decided to get him Mario Kart for the Wii a long time ago…he’s been wanting it for a while now. Anyway, one Saturday a couple of weeks ago he said he wanted to go and get it, and my daughter flipped out, so he figured out that we were going to get it for him. Thankfully he did this, because on Friday I had searched and searched for the game and couldn’t find it at any store! So Saturday we went out and finally at the last store we found it! We went home and put the kids down for a nap and he and I played for a while. It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Once the kids woke up they played for a while. Saturday night we headed to a park here and had so much fun playing with the kids and walking up to the top of the dam and looking at the beautiful water.

Sunday we were up early and had a great big breakfast that I cooked for once (normally hubby cooks the Sunday breakfast, but since it was Father’s Day, he played Mario Kart with the kids while I cooked). Afterwards we headed outside to play. It was hot, and the kids didn’t want the sprinkler on, which surprised me. I asked them if they would play in a pool, and once they said yes, we headed to the store to get one. We brought it back and hubby blew it up for us (it’s HUGE!). Once it was blown up, the cutest and funniest thing happened:

My son came over and looked in the pool, and then ran over to the box. I saw him turn the box over and shake it a couple times. I asked him what he was doing, and he told me “I can’t find the water.” After I was done laughing, I explained to him that the water didn’t come with the pool…we had to get it out of the hose.

After swimming and playing for a while the kids took a nap and then we headed to church. After church we went to a party at a friend’s house and were there until 9:30! It was so much fun and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!

Now it’s back to the grind…hopefully this week will go fast!
