Father's Day

What a wonderful and busy weekend we had! 

It all began on Friday when we began selling shaved ice at our local farmer's market!  We were slammed for 45 minutes and then we ran out of ice! Lesson learned...this week we'll be better prepared.

Then on Saturday I worked while Matthew took the girls to a birthday party.  He left the party and went to Babci and Granddad's house to install the outdoor speakers we gave Granddad several years ago...installation served as this year's Father's Day gift!

Matt met me at the house after work and we headed over to the ball field for some lawn seats to see the Gwinnett Braves.  The lawn seats are great because the kids got to play on a number of jumpies located behind the lawn.  Concessions and potties are pretty close too!  We had a great time.

Then on Sunday we woke up and had omeletts for breakfast.  Matthew opened presents; a new hammock, swim shorts, a bar set and a koozie decorated by Ella.

After breakfast we packed up and headed to the water park at Lake Lanier.  After a couple of hours of fun and sun we headed home so the Peep could have a nap.  Matt and I sat out on the deck enjoying the sun.  We gave the bean a squirt bottle with water in it and she kept up sufficiently doused.

Two rib eyes from the NY Butcher's shop and some fantastic mushrooms and potatoes later we were stuffed and happy.  Then we set up the sprinkler up in the front yard.  The Bean played while I took the peep up for a bath and bedtime. 

Our neighbors joined us in the driveway for sprinkler fun...and they brought sparklers.  All in all one of the better Father's Day weekends in recent memory.

Hope everyone had a lovely day.
