Father's Day Weekend

This weekend was the weekend to celebrate Chris for the great Daddy that he is to Colin and Kailey.  It was particularly nice because he had been away for most of the week last week for work, so it was really nice to spend quality time with him and the kids.  

On Saturday night after a day at soccer and then the beach, we walked down the street to the local restaurant and had dinner out on the deck overlooking the river.  It just recently reopened after the hurricane so it was nice to have something we could walk to.  

While we were there, Colin started winking with the man at the table next to us which sparked a conversation with them.  They complimented Colin and Kailey on how well behaved they were which was nice, especially since they had just missed Colin throwing his crayons and markers off the table before they got there.  

I wish the next picture wasn't so blurry, but Kailey was offering her pizza to Colin to share.  She was saying "Come on Colin, want a bite?" in her cute little voice.  Since all of their moments aren't so great, we really appreciate the ones that are.  

We spent most of the day today putting together our new patio furniture.  It literally took hours since we had to put every little piece together (I won't necessarily do THAT again) and thankfully, the kids played pretty well in their pools and with their other toys around the yard.  After christening it with dinner, we decided to treat the kids with a trip to the boardwalk.  They were so excited to go on the rides (we get asked almost daily about them) so it was worth the treat.  

I think the next picture is almost exactly a repeat from last summer on the train (I'm going to have to try and find it) but they loved it.  

I think out of anyone, Colin has really enjoyed having his buddy Daddy back home again...

I've been so blessed in my life to have grown up with a father who is so incredibly loving and would do anything for any of his children.  I have now been doubly blessed to have found a husband who would do the same for his kids.  Watching Colin and Kailey with their daddy has been so much fun because they just love him so much...

Thank you Chris for all you do to make sure those 2 feel loved every minute of their days...

We finished the night off with a walk along the boards and then a treat before heading home.  One nice thing about the boardwalk is that it sure tires them out!

Happy Father's day to all of the Dad's out there....including my father in law, my dad, and my kid's Daddy Chris.  I am so thankful to all of you!
