We slept in on Father's Day.
And then I went grocery shopping and cleaned while Josh Downs worked on odd projects around the house.
And then I decided I couldn't stand the suspense anymore, so I made him open his gifts...
A memory foam pillow so he'd quit stealing mine and two other regular pillows so he'd quit using my pretty, decorative ones.
And then the girls and I gave him his his next gift...
A dance routine to 'Like a Love Song' by Selena Gomez.
No, I'm not kidding. Selena Gomez.
And yes, someday, I'm going to figure out what to do with the walls in the dining room. (I've tried three different paint colors, purchased multiple wallpaper samples and most recently, hung white frames on the wall with the intention of adding color photos. So far, I don't like anything.)
And them my dad and stepmom came over to BBQ.
And I took lots of pictures of my dad with the kiddos.
And I loved every single one of them.
So I decided to take a few pictures of Josh Downs with the kiddos too...
It had (seriously) been years since I got a portrait-style shot of all of them together.
Thanks for that one Coley.
And then we hung out.
Annie's been wearing a hand-made Madonna glove for the past couple of days. (She and Josh made it out of the sleeve from one of her baby's dresses.)
And then my step-mom and I told embarrassing stories about my Dad and Josh.
And Annie told everyone about how she smashed her thumb while we were at the lake with Josh's parents the day before.
And Cole told everyone that he didn't shower for an entire week at Church Camp last summer, hence Courtney Lee's face.
And then Annie decided that she wanted to take pictures too so she grabbed an old camera I gave her a few years ago. (An old Canon EOS film camera.)
When she realized it wasn't working, she asked for some new batteries.
And when I told her that she'd need batteries and film she said, "What's film?"
And then she asked if she could take pictures with my camera instead since it doesn't need film.
And she took that one of Coley and my dad.
And then we ate.
Burgers and faux chicken patties (Quorn brand patties are my favorite.) and corn-on-the-cobb.
And then my dad and stepmom went home and Josh and I took a nap while the kids watched a movie.
And then I supervised the first kid-prepared meal ever served in our house...
Coley made a German Chocolate cake (Josh's favorite) with a little help from his (spoon-liking) little sister.
Apparently she didn't know that she could have saved a little time by hitting the 'print' button.
And Annie made berry bowls with whipped cream.
And I sprayed whipped cream in all of the kids mouths just like my grandma used to do with me.
And then we ate dinner before heading out for an 8:30 p.m. softball game.
And yes, we lost.
But I kind of felt like the day was a 'win' anyhow. (Hope yours was too.)
