I have had quite an interesting and busy weekend - but a good one!
I spent the entire day Friday at my friend Debbie's house in her pool! Beth, Debbie, and I floated the day away! It was SO HOT outside that you couldn't even sit beside the pool, you had to be in it! Trust me, I tried lounging by the pool reading a magazine and it lasted less than 5 minutes and the concrete scorched my feet! :-)
I had cheer Friday night, so I had to haul myself out of the pool eventually to clean up and make myself presentable and then head to the gym! After cheer it was too late to go ahead with my invitation to join Megan and La at the farm and too dark to join Gina on her patio, so I met Beth and Debbie at Marina's - one of my locally owned favorites - for a very late dinner, wine, and chocolate cheesecake! It was a great ending to a wonderful day!
Saturday morning Chris surprised me with breakfast and we had a nice morning talking catching up on each other's activities from the previous day - there was a lot to catch up on! And then he took me to see Karate Kid! It was a great movie and we had both been wanting to see it!!
After the movie, we headed to Willowbrook for an old tradition! We have spent many a hot summer day playing golf here from sun up to sun down! We had such a peaceful day golfing - until we just couldn't see! Chris' golfed like his old self, which made it even more fun, throwing up at 72 on the scorecard on his first 18 - yay! And after it got too dark, we had some drinks and dinner on the patio of the restaurant that occupies the clubhouse and overlooks the golf course complete with twinkle lights and live music! :-) What a wonderful day!
And today? Father's day!
It was my turn to bring breakfast in bed to Chris! He is truly a wonderful Father! There are no words to describe what a dedicated, loving, firm parent he is! He is raising Lily to be such an independent, strong, responsible young lady, but he has the soft, playful heart to make the process fun! He is full and overflowing with love for that little girl! Happy Father's day love!
In addition to breakfast he got a tailgate toss (corn hole) game with a tic-tac-toe game on the back! I actually got the plans and materials to build these things and we built one for my Dad and Brother and he built one for his sister and brother-in-law, but we have never built one for ourselves! Lily is getting him a shaver and a card - we're going to go pick it out tomorrow... it was her original idea and she is insistent! lol. Unfortunately we didn't get to the store before today and she's been enjoying a few days with her mom, so we'll be extending Father's day weekend through Monday.
And... saving the best for last...
He is the most amazing and wonderful man!
No one will ever compare to the wise, good-ness he brings to this world!
He is so amazingly smart, wise, and he can fix/build anything!
He is kind-hearted to his very core.
He is the kind of person I want to be.
He's my wonderful Dad!
Banana Split Dishes! :-)
...and all the stuff for Banana Splits of course!
I have the dishes already and I am getting ready to head out the door to head toward Chattanooga! Once there I will buy all the fixins and head to Mom and Dad's!
I have so many wonderful people in my life, and many of them are Dad's. So, to each of you, I wish you a wonderful Father's day! It takes a strong, kind-hearted, loving man to be a good Father! God bless you with wisdom, courage, and strength to do the job of being a Dad. I dare say there is not a more challenging or rewarding job out there than being a parent.
