Friday night- After H was in bed, Kristian headed down to the water and had a campfire with some buddies while I stayed in and watched wedding shows. Basically a perfect night for both of us!
Saturday- Hunter woke up around 7am so I pulled him into bed to play with the iPad while we continued to doze. He is loving the iPad now that he knows how to work a couple of his apps. He will actually sit still for 20+ minutes.
After checking out some yard sales, which were a bust, we headed to the pool. Hunter is still not a fan and spent about 30 minutes crying/clinging to us before he passed out on my shoulder. So we put him in his stroller where he napped for an hour while we hung out with Kristian's buddy who was also there with his kid.
Since Hunter doesn't seem to like the pool but LOVES the water table at daycare I decided to bite the bullet and buy him one for at home. He and I headed to Target while Kristian went fishing and for $35 I scored the last one they had. Hunter LOVES it! And I now understand why he comes home from daycare in different clothes everyday, the kid gets soaked!
*this saved us from having to give him a bath that night*
While Hunter played Kristian manned the grille and cooked some amazing ribs. He was in heaven with his beer, the grille and some Reggae music playing on the iPad. His buddy came over later with his kids for a feast of food.
-Sunday- I let Kristian sleep in a bit for Father's Day so I got up with Hunter and once again let him entertain himself with the iPad for 30 minutes. Since these are educational apps I don't feel bad letting him play with it. Oh and he was rocking the bedhead look.
On Saturday night I prepared a breakfast casserole that I threw in the refrigerator overnight, then just popped it in the oven Sunday morning and Voila, perfect Father's Day breakfast.
I took Hunter on a long stroller walk so that Kristian could go fishing some more. Our cat Halpert, now tags along on our stroller walks. We put a leash on him that we tie to the stroller so he can't run off but he really doesn't try to, he just rides peacefully in the bottom part of the stroller and loves it.
Hunter gave Kristian (and I) the best gift with a 3 hour nap -- I went to the pool alone while Kristian stayed home and watched Golf. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon playing together, watching golf, more iPading, and eating dinner. All in all it was a wonderful family weekend.
