Fathers Day

Well, I might just be the worst mom, wife and daughter ever.  Yesterday was Father's Day and what did I do . . . . vilch.  I didn't call anyone, I didn't plan anything and I took a really long nap.  Now, in my mind I justified my behavior by saying - Erin, you are having a baby in three days - maybe you should just take a nap.  However, several years from now when I re-read this post, I will shake my head in shame.

Anyway, more proof of my terribleness - Michael asked for one thing for Father's Day - A Peanut Butter Galaxy Ice Cream Cake from Maggie Moos.  This cake must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance.  Did manage to accomplish this small request - nope.  Instead we ate Mexican food for lunch and Michael washed off the basketball court.  Happy Father's Day Sweetie!

After putting the boys to bed we made sandwiches and watched Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

On Thursday the boys came with me to work for a new minutes.  This is Sam sitting under my desk.

Sam asked me to take this picture.

I did manage to take this Father's Day picture.  However, I took on the Monday after Father's Day.  Better luck next year Michael.

Manhandled

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.


Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 


Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.






We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.


They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.


One of my favorites!



Another favorite.




And . . . another favorite.









They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.



It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
