Father's Day Weekend

We were very busy this weekend and so grateful we were able to all be together as a family!

Elysse's due date was Saturday, glad she made it ahead of time. We had a VanWinkle Law Firm picnic at 11 a.m. at Claxton Farms. There was so much to do as there was a band playing music, a dance floor, face painting, two bounce houses, balloon animals, water guns, really yummy food, etc. The kids had a great time. There were even a few animals for them to look at - llamas, ponies and cows. Nathan took a little walk around a pond. Audrey went off on her own for awhile (she was looking for mommy) and started talking with many of the other people that work at the firm. Daddy found her as she was deciding to have a blue ladybug painted on her face - good thing they weren't doing real tattoos, he may have been too late.

We left the Firm picnic and headed to the church picnic. The kids met up with their best friends and had a wonderful time. We had a rented pavilion, a grill and a playground set. It was extremely hot and we were blessed with a 5 minute rain shower that cooled things down a bit. The adult guys played catch and another game called boccie ball. The kids were so hot that they preferred water to the soda in the cooler.

Today we were all able to attend church together. Last week Audrey stayed home with Grandma Beadle - it felt horrible to be at church without her. This week was so much better. Next week she will be going back to Nursery class for the first time in over eight months. She is excited and her Nursery leader is even more excited. All in all, I think it was a great Father's Day weekend.

Glad the kids were able to play and use of some of that extraordinary energy they have. I'm sure Miss Cupcake was the prettiest girl at church.

Sounds like life is getting back to some semblance of normal for you--I bet that feels strange but really good--I have got to send Miss Elysse's present before she is too big to wear it!
