Father's Day

It always amazes me how Father's day poops me out like Thanksgiving or Christmas does. My kids seem to have the same excitement in giving their Dad their cards and gifts as they do waiting to open gifts under the tree. I'm not sure if it's the genuine pleasure my husband shares with them when he opens each item or the idea that they made his gift and can't wait to share there pride with him.

Today was a good Father's Day. I think Warren feels like it's Christmas too. He got up way before 7am and the kids slept in until close to 9am. Not exactly sure what he does when he gets up so early but I found written of papers and open books laying around. Being the wife of a future famous writer I feel safe assuming he was working on his novel.

After Tanner was delivered to us we choose IHOP for breakfast and ended up walking across the street to Nations hamburgers. Not so busy and they were serving breakfast and lunch. We ate up some of the greasiest grub I've had in a long time. When we got home we all napped. Yes every member of the family. That never happens. I guess that was a Happy Father's day to me as well. Yay me!

I loaded up the Minivan and we spent the afternoon at the YMCA pool. OK Warren spent the afternoon on the treadmill. This man is in shape naturally and keeps getting better looking. It's so weird to me since my body has caught up with my age. I look and feel like 40 is knocking at the door, watching every bit I eat to make sure it;s not going to add some extra somewhere on my body that will take years to get rid of if ever.

After to pool the kids played in the sprinkler while I watched my dog outside. With the addition of the chickens in the yard he can not be trusted. Marysa called around 5 and asked me to bring her Stepping Stone she made to her Dad's for her.I loaded up Tanner, Joey and Declan for the 10 mile drive. Much to my surprise Joey and Declan both fell asleep. That was nap two. I guess I really pooped them out.

Now Declan is asleep and Warren is in our room with the other kids watching the best kung fu movie of all time. The Flying Guillotine.  I'm happy today is over and was such a great day.

Happy Father's Day to all of you.
