Father's Day Weekend

Wow, this week is off and running! Here's a quick recap of our full and fun Father's Day weekend:

I left at 6:15 a.m. for an 8-mile run. WAY too late to start a long run like that. Ick! But I made it in exactly an hour and a half, which is great considering the elevation I conquered!! We ain't in the flatlands anymore!

At 1 p.m. I had a Stampin' Up! workshop which was tons of fun. I left the house 2 hours later with $545 in orders and a booking for August--woohoo!

That evening we decided to go out to eat at Sweet Tomatoes, one of our favorite restaurants. It had been a long time since our whole family went out to eat, and when Ted suggested it, I figured HE'S the DADDY, so let's GO!

After church we had a simple dinner of brats and fruit salad and gave Ted his gifts. Charis heaped a pile of trinkets and cards she had made by Ted's plate. It was fun watching Ted "open" the presents (which were wrapped in scrap paper) and exclaim over her artwork. We also got him Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers book and the Archaeological Study Bible (which was a purchase that honestly was as much for me as it was for him!) I got the same Bible for my dad--I'm quite sure he'll be as excited to read his copy as we are to read ours!

After Kenna got a good nap, we headed to the F family's house for swimming, pizza, and watching golf (the guys) and chit-chatting (the girls).

When we returned home, we got the kiddos in bed, and Ted worked on ironing his uniform while we watched a DVD of Tim Hawkins on the Bananas show. Topped off with some ice cream and snuggle time, this was a great way to end the day...and I hope the Father in our House agrees! :-)

Sounds like a fabulous time for the family! Great job on keeping up on the running! And what a great stampin up show too. It sure makes you feel good to walk out of a show with good orders doesn't it? What a great Father's Day too, hopefully Ted thought so too. Happy Belated Father's Day Ted!
