Father's day.

Today is Father's Day. Dave is an awesome dad. One of my favorite things about him is how he lets me get out for "me" time. He encourages it. Our kids are 5 and 3. Fun times in the discipline department. :-) NOT! Our kids are really super good, but they do test our patience when we are at home. I love them. Dave loves them too. I'm so blessed to have a husband who will go to a job that he doesn't really love, to provide so much for us. He takes excellent care of us. Today we let "daddy" choose whatever he wanted to do. He chose to go shoot in an IDPA tournament. It's a pistol shooting tournament. He said it was harder than usual, but he did have fun. When he got home, we hung around here a little while. Then we took the kids to see the movie "Cars"... it was a WAY fun movie. The kids had seen it while spending a week in Indiana with their grandparents. But they still had fun. Then we met my folks at an ice cream place and treated my dad to ice cream for Father's day. It was a really fun day.

Yesterday we worked in the yard all day. We've lived in our house for 5 years now, and we've really been slow in the landscaping department. Well we got a lot done out there yesterday.. At least in the front yard. We had some ornamental grass that was dying off, so we broke it apart and hopefully 4 pieces of it survived. Also got a hydraenga bush and some wave petunias and a couple magnolia bushes. Oh and peony plant. I have one at my mailbox and I LOVE it in the spring...Big ol pink blossoms...smell just like roses. My aunt has some lovely flowers in her yard, and she also said she may have some to share with me, perennials, which would be very exciting to have! I would love to have some that I didn't have to plant each year.
My sister has a knack for gardening that I wish I had. But at least I am trying. My mother in law is an excellent gardener as well. I hope that it will rub off on me sooner or later.

Tomorrow is Monday. The kids and I are having a playdate with some friends. Then in the afternoon, we are venturing to the swimming pool for some fun. They should be good and tired tomorrow night.

I'll be working on cleaning house this week cuz I'm hosting my baby sister's baby shower on Sunday. There will be a, pardon my phrase, butt-load of people here. We're gonna have it in the back yard, because I know I cannot fit potentially 50 people in my house. I'm looking forward to it, though. I cannot wait till my new niece is born, Haley Jane. I look forward to a baby fix! :-)

Okay, off to finish watching a really good movie... called, "An Unfinished Life" with Robert Redfort and Morgan Freeman. It's really good. I highly recommend it.
