Now that the Disney World recap is finished, I guess it's time to get back to reality. Honestly, we kinda easied back in last week by having Eric's mom and dad watch the kids while we tended to the garden, unpacked, did laundry, and caught up at work. We may or may not have snuck in a date night too!
As long as I make up the hours at some point during the week, I can work half days on Fridays throughout the summer months, which is exactly what I did. Then I skipped the gym to come home and nap while the kids were gone. I did a little laundry after I woke up, and then it was time to go get Eli and Ellie.
Eric and I ended up getting to the meeting spot a little early, so we went shopping. He surprised me with the most beautiful pair of earrings as an early birthday present. How sweet is that?! We were so excited to see the kids and share a yummy dinner with his family before heading home.
On Saturday I took the kids shopping for Father's Day gifts, and I picked up a few things for myself too. Ha! Back at home we had family movie night at watched Paddington. Sunday after church we went to eat at Cracker Barrel, and then Eric surprised me with a new deck chair. I'm telling you what, he was full of them all weekend! Then we went back home to swim, grill steaks, and have some family time. I can't imagine better way to spend my birthday and Father's Day.
