How's it going? 

Hope you had a great weekend. The weekends always fly by so fast don't they? You work all week and look forward to the 2 days you have off and before you know it, it's back to work again.

Friday night I didn't do too much because I had to babysit for a friend who had a wedding to go to. By the time I got off, I was exhausted. Little boys seem more difficult to watch in my opinion. Always on the go! I'm used to watching little girls since I've been with the families I work for for almost 2 years.

Saturday I just hung out around the house until M and I got together. We decided to go play putt putt but only made it to the 7th hole because there were 5 groups in front of us and M was starving. Like tummy grumbling starving and it probably would have taken an hour & a half to finish the game. So we decided to leave and go eat. We came home around 11 and watch You, Me and Dupree, such a funny movie!

Sunday was of course Father's Day. M and I went to the pool for a little bit before heading over my aunt's to see my dad and attend a cookout. We had such a fun time! My aunt had a ton of food, snacks and drinks. She also organizes all of these fun little games for everyone to play. We played guess the tie where each dad submitted a tie and we had to guess who it belonged to, create a slogan for a picture, Scottish trade game which takes a while but is fun (if you want to know how to play, leave a comment asking because it takes a little while to explain lol) and then the jockey game. I'll explain this one. There are 6 players: Me, 3 of my cousins, step-sis, and cousins gf. We all were numbered 1-6. The people not playing had to pick a jockey based on the name but they don't know who the name belongs to. My name was Lickity Quick (M came up with it lol). So we all line up and a big die is rolled. If it lands on your number, you take a step forward with your horse. Who ever gets to the finish line first wins.. Wanna know who the winner was?

Me of course! Haha that's my dad :-)
Terrible angle! My face looks huge!

My fan club!
L to R - Step bro, family friend, me, dad, cousin

Me and M - he didn't chose my horse though
because then that would have been too obvious

step sis, me, step mom

My dad video tapped the whole race.
It's like 6 min long and I can't get it to upload.
I guess it's a good thing though because it's sort of embarrassing.

I look rough in these pics because it was about 94 degrees
this day! Talk about hot and sweaty! Thank goodness for tents.

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I was about to write how cute you look in all the pictures and then I read the last line that you looked rough! PLEASE! The pictures dont show it at all! :)
That game sounds fun. We are having a cookout with friends next weekend- I might have to play that one. I think I will add everytime you have to take a step, you also take a sip of your adult beverage! :)
Is there a set finish line set up?

Heather said...

I agree, weekends are NOT long enough. I vote for working 2 days & off 5...sounds good to me!

Great pics with your family, even if it 94 degrees :). It's been smeltering hot around here too!
