My Day with My Boys...

...although I had to work on Saturday, I still had a pretty fabulous weekend. I spent all day Sunday reading my book from Chelsea's book swap and I absolutely loved it...kept me up past midnight with the page turner!

Then on Monday, I spent the day with my two favorite boys...my husband and my dad! Matt and I spent the morning tidy up for Butchie. First, we made some sun tea on the front porch.
Then we got out our ice cream maker and started a batch of butter pecan (Butchie's favorite!)
Then after a lunch of steak and potatoes (I told you we're meat eaters at the G household), we drove Butchie through St. Peters showing him the houses that have developed, Matt's uncle's farm, our friend's new house being built up from the flood. Then we went out to Quail Ridge Park and showed my dad how to play frisbee golf.

Here's Matt throwing (please ignore my finger on the right side, it was really bright out and I couldn't see the screen plus I had frisbees in my hands too!)Here's Butchie throwing (again ignore my finger)
YES! We all made it to the basket!!!
My dad had never heard of frisbee golf (it's not in Cape at all apparently) but he kept saying that he really liked it which made me feel good. I felt bad we only played three holes but then the course goes into the woods and I'd forgotten bug spray so I wasn't about to chance getting some ticks and poison PLUS it started lightning as the storm rolled in.

I love when my parents come visit but I also always feel bad because usually they just end up taking us out to eat and maybe some shopping so it felt good to feed Butchie this time and do something fun and active! I'm glad he was able to come visit...hubs and I really need to make a trip to Cape-its been too long!

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day!

Sounds like a great time. The little guy and I play frisbee golf at a large park from time to time, but unfortunately there is no map of the holes and we still have yet to find a couple of them in the brush. You'd think that would be the first thing that was available for players.

Sounds like your dad had a great time. And I know what you mean about feeling good about being able to take care of your parents; I'm 40 and when mine come to visit they still try to take care of me. So nice when I can actually care for them.

How awesome that you got to spend time together like that. I love frisbee golf AND ice cream, especially homemade, Mmmmmmmmm.

I have never played frisbee golf. I had no idea how it was played. I think it is so funny when you call it "poison". Sounds like a really great day!

Looks like everyone had a great time. Do ya'll like Wendy's Frosty Ice cream? If so, I've got a recipe for it that everyone swears it taste exactly the same. We've burnt up 2-3 ice cream makers in our 20 years of marriage.
