Father's Day Weekend

 This weekend was significant for many reasons!  One, my last day of work in Corporate America was Friday.  After 18 years, it will be quite different to wake up Monday morning without work on my mind!  I am excited about this next chapter!

On Saturday we met up with other families from our preschool association and spent the day at Long Cove.  This gorgeous development is about 90 minutes away and it was just heaven.  The pools were amazing and the kids enjoyed their fair share of the endless popsicles while we enjoyed the margarita machine!  It was really great to spend the day in the pool with our kids and other families - seemed like the perfect way to start this next chapter of my life!

Yesterday was Father's Day, the kids woke up Chad by wishing them a happy fathers day and giving them some awesome craft gifts they made last week.  They were a huge hit and I am amazed they were able to keep the secret for 4 whole days.  

We headed to brunch at a favorite spot, Penne Pomodoro.  Will and Katie seemed to enjoy themselves as well aside from Will being under the weather.  He didn't complain much but enough for me to know that something was wrong.  Turns out the little guy has strep throat, so we spent the day inside relaxing which luckily is Chad's dream day.  

Katie likes chocolate as much as her daddy!

Endless popsicles...

And snow cones!

The good thing about being tested for strep is you get a popsicle after they swab your throat!

of course, Katie got one too

Will loved the Children's Medical City Urgent Care - gave it a thumbs up

Katie's new preferred attire - princess dresses.  This is "Elephant Katie" - her paper bag puppet we made today

The kids made these darling canvases for Father's Day - thanks Candice!

Katie loves her daddy because he gives her kisses

Will loves his Daddy because he tickles him!
