Father of Brooke and Mason.
Really awesome guy!
I loved that.
That’s all I asked for Mother’s Day. Oh well. (insert sigh)
Got our plan together.
Greg took Brooke to her blessing for Panama at the 8:30 service.
I know because I went to the 11:00 service and got to see for myself.
She is serving Christ in a way that I never did as a young kid. I am so very proud of her.
Yes, on Father’s Day.
Because he made the ALL STARS team.
So proud of that kid.
He hustled all season and played his heart out.
And it payed off.
Congrats “May May” – ”FISH” (as his baseball friends call him).
You did it!
Then Mason and I went to Brooke’s second blessing.
We clapped for her.
We loved the theme at the end…
Don’t just ALMOST do it.
Good lesson for my kids.
And for me.
We choose meaningful gifts. And try to stay cheap.
I know. I know.
Occasionally we go big for the kids on special occasions/achievements.
But for us parents, it’s about gathering of family.
And the occasional round of golf (gift card).
When Greg got home from work (yes, he had to sell some Harley’s to a few lucky dads), he grilled for us.
I hate grilling.
It’s his job.
And it makes him feel manly.
At least that’s what we tell him to get him to do it.
Steaks, salad and garlic bread.
I got the steak and salad…. and two measly breadsticks.
Oh, I can’t wait to have a nice chilled glass of wine soon!!!
Nope. I didn’t get to have any of that either!
But they enjoyed it.
And I enjoyed fitting into my white jeans this weekend… woo hoo.
Fruit Pizza is Greg’s favorite.
And it’s in my cookbook if you are looking for the recipe.
Pillsbury sugar cookie for crust. Cream cheese frosting. Yummy fruit on top. Of course a few extra ingredients to make it over-the-top delicious.
Then on to our usual evening…
Mason and Greg on the couch watching baseball.
Our friends son plays for Oregon State University and we have taped all of the games. They are in the College World Series and we are watching tonight. Don’t tell me if they won. I had to tape it because we have All Star practice tonight.
Brooke went to her room to get in touch with her friends.
And I went for a hot shower, fluffy white robe and watched Next Food Network Star.
Even better Evening.
