His Day

Thursday, June 21, 2012 | | 10 comments
I thought I'd better get last weekend's festivities up before another weekend arrives ...

This year my husband enjoyed a two part Father's Day. On Mother's Day {yes, I loaned him my big day} we traveled to New York for a Yankees game. 

This isn't necessarily my idea of a great time but I will admit that it turned out to be a fun filled {hot} day. A good friend's husband orchestrated a bus trip for his employees and invited a few of their friends along. Since Kevin likes the Yankees, has wanted to go to a game and I'm a fabulous wife {insert hearty laugh} we happily boarded the bus. Thankfully this bus wasn't yellow and I wasn't in charge of everyone on it! :)

We were able to arrive well before any other fans and enjoyed a ballpark lunch in a private party setting. One of my dreams came true ... endless supply of popcorn! Yum :)
If only I could convince Kevin we need a popcorn machine for our home!

The happy guy before the game!

We had good seats but the afternoon sun baked us! I ended up with a lovely sunburned nose ~ my students thought it was funny. 

I caught a little grief from our friends because I didn't have any Yankee gear ~ sorry, I'm not a billboard. 

On Sunday { Father's Day} we enjoyed breakfast at The Shack after church, we worked in the yard and I made Kevin a special dinner.

We enjoyed asian chopped salad, bacon rubbed chicken skewers with a thai marinade, and manly chocolate cupcakes with kahlua frosting. June 2012 024 June 2012 028 

Then it was time for gifts. Bentley's motto is *better to help open a gift than just let it sit there.* Much to his chagrin, he wasn't allowed to rip the paper off.

 The mustache glasses are an on going joke in our home. Kevin grew a mustache last year while on the submarine. He came home and ~surprised me~ with his new addition. For several weeks he continued to annoy me with the furry patch on his lip. After my threatening to shave it off in the middle of the night, he finally relented and shaved. 

The kit is from William Sonoma ~ I'll let you know how it turns out.

 Ending a very nice day with chocolate!

My handsome son is celebrating his birthday today!

I wish I could spend his special day with him but I'll see him soon and we'll make up for it up then!

He is a kind and considerate young man ... a mother's goal come true. Each day I am inspired by his determination, ethics, and compassion ~ the tables are starting to turn and he is now beginning to teach me life lessons. 

Yep, I think it's pretty neat!

Have a FABULOUS birthday sweet boy! 
I love you tons and tons! :)

Another One Down

My idea of an ideal Friday night dinner!!!

My husband would think this was an appetizer with dinner to follow. Not tonight. It's just me.  He's off on a guy's weekend of sailing races.

This is actually a good thing. I really need to focus and gain control of my spinning out of control life! Beginning in May the pressure and chaos reaches an all time high with all my school and personal activities. There is only one speed during this time ... full blast!

I feel like I'm crawling to the finish line of a v e r y long race! I'd be giving myself a lot of credit if I told you my head was above water. It's not ... not even close! It's been a long {and rewarding} school year. My body and brain are telling me it's time for a little break.

This weekend my goal is to regain some control of our home. If all goes well, I hope to hit the farmer's market in the morning and the beach after church on Sunday. These are some major goals gals! :)

I'm about a year behind on posts but I hope to share soon. School is out in 4 days ~ woo hoo!

Have a wonderful weekend.
