Summer: Day 9 + father's day weekend

I was glad that I had made plans with Cathy on Friday, because I needed some motivation to get out of the house and do something with the kids. Just keepin' it real, some days it would be easier to do nothing...even though I may go crazy staying inside all day.
Cathy and Cate wanted to go to Copperton Park, and see what all the fuss was about. I am pretty sure we played for 3 hours. The kids were happy, and so we let them be. Cathy played photographer while I played on the slides with the kids. We laughed pretty hard at all the pictures, action shots are always funny.

We played so long that we decided we needed to have dinner with each other. We drove to my house, picked up Paul, and gave Sabrina a bath...because she was that dirty. Then headed to Chili's to celebrate Cathy's 40th birthday. I love that Cathy has the same sarcastic sense of humor that Paul does, makes me laugh a lot. We all love our "Cafee"!
Bina was so exhausted from the park she slept through some of dinner at Chili's...which never happens.

It was suppose to be a weekend about Paul, because it was Father's Day after all. But after going shopping, I ended up with a new Dooney, and Savannah ended up with new TOMS. I couldn't help but feel a little guilty, because Paul is continually thinking about his family instead of himself. 
I was determined to make up for it Sunday. Savannah and I planned a new meal, and honestly it bombed! Total wife fail on Father's Day! I started laughing so hard that drink came out of my nose. I did give Paul a foot rub, and the kids bought him funny gifts. I am taking note, next year plan a fail proof menu. :)

This week we have a full schedule already. Homemade bubbles, yard work, Seven Peaks, a visit with Grandma, a beach play date, a date with Devin to see the premier of Monster University, a birthday party at the splash pad, and our Bina is turning one. 

Should be pretty good. What are your plans?

Punk and I will be at the movie tomorrow night. See you there! :D I can't wait to see how the bubbles turn out. I am always intrigued by anything outside of soap and water.

I love copperton park! My pa would take us there when we were little and we'd play for hours. Good times. I love seeing how cute Paul is with Sabrina. She is definitely daddy's little princess :) hope you have fun at 7 peaks :)
