Father's Day Redo

Hi!  Long time, no blog.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father's Day.
Ours was horrible. :(  The kids and I were so sick.  It seemed like food poisoning but then our friends who we were with Thursday and Friday got the same thing so maybe it was something else.  Either way, it wasn't fun.  Poor Matt spent his special day (and the whole night before) giving baths, doing laundry, cleaning carpets and taking care of all of us.  He definitely wins some kind award.  We'll just have to have a Father's Day redo next weekend! :)

Other than that there's not much new with us.
Matt's graduation was a blast!  It ended up raining off and on all day but we still had so much fun.  It still doesn't feel like he's officially done, but he is!  Woohoo!  We are all enjoying him being around lots more and I know he doesn't miss the homework every night. :)

The weather has been all over the place lately.  Hot, rainy, chilly, hot again. We are loving it!  (The hot, sunny parts) :)
We have been staying busy, we are usually out doing something every day.  Lots of trips to the river, Children's Museum, Zoo, parks....I wish we had Summer for 9 months and winter for 3, not the other way around! :)

Here's some pictures of the kids from the Children's Museum last week.

Have a wonderful week!! :)
Can't wait to catch up with with everyone!

Jen said... sad that you guys were sick.
We are having a re-do too. I had to sleep and work on Father's we are going to celebrate on Friday instead.
The musuem looks like a great one!
Have a great day!

So sorry to hear you guys were sick last weekend. That is no fun.

Sounds like a busy summer so far...I agree, summer for more than 3 months would be nice!!

CM said...

Ha, love the turtle pic! Glad to hear from you, take care!

Lourie said...

The turtle picture is awesome. Haha. Sorry everyone was sick. That really sucks. So yeah, Matt definitely deserves an award!!

Julie said...

Ah..what a bummer that you all were sick. Well, I guess the hubs got to "practice" his amazing daddy skills!!

And...Amen to 9 months of summer and 3 months of winter. Can we vote somewhere??

Kirsty said...

Poor thing! I hate you all were sick but ... GO MATT!!!! What an awesome guy :)

My fav picture is the last one of Alexa coming out of the turtle shell - that's cool!!!

We have a new childrens museum in town too but it's incredibly expensive to get into . Like 15 a person - goodness it would cost me an arm and a leg to take my kids!

Pennie said...

Oh, that turtle picture is just priceless!

That stinks that you were all so sick! Ugh!

I know what you mean about the weather...summer is great! And so short! We've been taking advantage of it, too...but I look at our calendars and it seems like the kids will be back at school in no time! PANIC!!!!!

I keep thinking that maybe we'll see you around...maybe this summer WE WILL! I mean, I WILL recognize you and your beautiful auburn fam! I've got my eyes peeled for ya! ;)

Tina Fisher said...

I love the turtle picture! You are one busy woman! I wish I could keep up with you and all your energy!

Jen said...

Welcome back!!! Great pictures! I am glad you are all feeling better. Love the pic of Alexis in the turtle shell! I am getting tired of the rain too...UGH! I suppose we'll be begging for some later this summer.

Amy said...

That children's museum looks like so much fun! Sorry you were so sick. Been dealing with that here, too. And I agree, your hubby does deserve an award.
