Father's Day weekend

Friday night I had my turn at a stomach bug that made its way through our house, so Matt took both kids to Chuck E Cheese! What a good daddy! Will had so much fun, and Liza slept the whole time!

Saturday night we went on a date to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I thought it was pretty funny and made me want to visit India!

Sunday morning Matt woke up to a Father's Day message in the shower and then he got a handmade card from Will and a Keurig machine! He'd been hinting at one for awhile:)

Our little monkey watching daddy open his cards and gift!
I made baked oatmeal for breakfast! Matt's coworker Kelsey gave me the recipe and it was SO good! It was easy to make too, and will feed a crowd.

Will approved!
I love these guys SO much!!

Matt's first Father's Day with a daughter!
We ate steak fajitas outside for dinner per Matt's request, and afterwards we sat outside a long time listening to music, eating watermelon, watching fireflies, and just giggling! We finally went inside when we couldn't see was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
