Sunday is Daddy Day

Rob works crazy hours every week.  On average he works 70 hours a week, so we take advantage of every minute we get with him. Sundays around here are referred to as Daddy Day. We started off Daddy Day with some berries and french toast.  This was the kids first encounter with french toast, and they were big fans.  

The majority of the day was rainy out, so we were inside until the evening hours.  We took advantage and started working on some of our Fourth of July treats.

Once the rain clouds cleared, we were greeted by the sun and perfect temperatures.  While we grilled some kabobs on the grill, the kids played with their water table.  Daddy was great at helping them with the squirt guns and wheels.

After dinner they got to run around naked in the back yard and enjoy a blueberry, pineapple, spinach popsicle.

Of course this happened. Typical little boy.

Once the popsicles were finished, a meltdown occured.  Bath time involved screaming, crying and more screaming. "Elmo's Song" got things settled down enough for us to finish baths and get them to bed.  We're now enjoying R rated comedies and adult beverages while the kids snooze.

Rewind to Friday.  We got some extra daddy time on Friday afternoon at my cousin's wedding.  Thanks to stacking cups, blocks and a few snacks, the kids made it through the wedding with barely a peep.

My gorgeous cousin Rachel.

The beautiful bride and her dad.

After the ceremony was an adults only reception.  Thank you to the kids' Godmother for watching them for the night. They had cow's milk for the for the first time before bed, and went down without a fight. 

We got to go out and enjoy a delicious breakfast for dinner buffet, dancing, a few cocktails and most importantly, wedding cake. Being the huge party animals we are, we broke curfew and didn't get home until 10:10.  It's crazy to think that in years past we would just be pregaming at that time of night.  Oh how things have changed.

I'm looking forward to this week and the Fourth.  I'm hosting a small cookout for some friends and my daycare girls. More on that later.  

I hope everyone's weekend was as fun as ours.
