Weekending - the last of Spring, Father's Day and Birthday edition

I am completely bewildered at how we just finished up the last official weekend of Spring!! We're headed into the homestretch this week with it being the last week of school for Thomas and then we get to spend the Summer together as a family.  I love this life.

I mentioned on Friday that I love Spring because all my favorite peeps have birthdays.  Well Thomas and I celebrated his birthday for the 12th time together on Friday and it was so special having our two girls with us.  We met Thomas for lunch and then he spent the afternoon with the girls.  I can't think of anything better.  We went out to pizza for dinner and sang Happy Birthday when we got home while he blew out the candle in his birthday Pumpkin Pie.  He truly is the man of my dreams!

Saturday we got up early (no surprise there) and headed into our town for a delicious breakfast of Eggs Benedict, homestyle fries and a side of bacon!  It did not disappoint but we want to try something new on the menu next time since it all sounds so yummy.  Then we made our way to the farmer's market - which was getting a slow start to the day so the girls played on the playground for a bit.  When the market still was not open we made our way to Costco to get some essentials (toilet paper and hummus) then back home so Thomas could get ready for his High School graduation.  It's been a while since I've shared a photo of our flower bed and I wanted to make sure and document all the peony glory before they're done blooming.  I have 10 plants in all and they are all my favorite ;) While Thomas was gone the girls napped and did some cleaning around the house (#storyofmylife) then we headed out to get a new vacuum, because my current situation is a bit ridiculous.  I'll let you know how I like it after I use it for a while.

Sunday morning also started out pretty early.  We had some breakfast, played a bit and then got ready to go see Cars 3 for Father's Day!!  Thomas truly is the bees knees when it comes to parenthood and being a girl dad.  He totally rocks it.  He is kind, gently, and nurturing while still being tough, and fun with a side of wild.  I always knew he would make a great dad and I am so glad we get to do this parenting thing together.

Ellie and Finnley's behavior during the movie left lots to be desired (but that's probably what happens when you show up an hour early) but the movie was so cute.  I think that it was my favorite Cars movie to date (definitely way better than Cars 2) and I'm so glad we had a chance to watch it.  Surprisingly the theatre wasn't very full despite it being opening weekend.  We've decided that the next movie we go to as a family will not be opening weekend...that way we won't have to show up so early to get prime seats ;)  After the movie we went out to eat at Red Robin and then off to the park.  Parks have gotten a whole lot better now that Finnley is walking.  She is climbing up on everything so she needs a helicopter, but the fact that she is moving around and walking on her own is just the best!  Good timing too since we're nearly into Summer and will be frequenting parks a lot!

we then headed home for naps.  Thomas cleaned his car, I worked with my horse and did some weeding.  All in all a very fun weekend!

Happy Monday Y'all!!
