Father's Day

We just finished up a great but very busy weekend with our kids in celebration if Father's Day.

We kicked off the weekend by taking Austen and Peyton to mini golf (Austen's request) and to see the new Pixar movie Inside Out (Peyton's request). We left Hailey at home with a babysitter so we could all fully participate. It felt weird with her not being with us but it was also nice to be able to spend time with the older two together without one of us having to hang back. 

Saturday we went to breakfast together before Tom headed off to golf with friends (his Father's Day gift of sorts). The kids and I headed to the mall to run some errands and ended up at the Disney store for some special interactive games. Home for lunch and nap for Hailey before heading to Austen's little league home run derby contest where beforehand they  test the skills of all the little kids beforehand. While Austen didn't win any category in particular, he did really well in all categories probably placing in the top 3 in at least 2 out of the 4 categories for hitting, accuracy, throwing and speed. 
Tom met us at the field and we capped off the night with a date night to a Mexican restaurant in a neighboring town that I would definitely go back to. 

Sunday we woke up early so I could run in our town's 5K and Austen got to run the 1/2 mile race with all of his friends. He placed 18th overall out of over 300 kids ages 1-10. Maybe we have a runner on our hands too. I did okay as well averaging a 9 minute, 20 second mile. It's not the 7 minute mile I did when I was 12 but I was happy with it! After the run, my dad met us and we headed for some beach time in Michigan. We love that he loves going there as much as we do. Someday soon, Dad, we will have a place there to go to that's ours! Until then we'll keep going up there for Father's Day as long as you do!
