I wanted to post this story about this man that Katie, Jake and I saw walking on Friday and Saturday. I thought him to be an interesting character.
There you will also find a better photo of him then I had taken. ( Surprise, surprise )
Oh dear here I go again. It is horribly hot here in southern Illinois today. When I walked Ruby and Roxy last night I felt as though I lived in a tropical jungle. I say jungle because with all of the rain we have had the weeds and plants are flourishing! Unfortunately with heat indexes of 105 degrees, I have no desire to do anything about it. But I am sure that there are many of you with the same temperatures right now as well! So on that note I will spare you anymore jungle talk!
I think my husbands Fathers Day weekend was pretty good. He was able to cookout on Saturday. He BBQ'd pork steaks which were delicious, while I was in the kitchen making potato pancakes and green beans. Katie loved the potato pancakes, they did come out good! The whole dinner was fabulous but we always do good with the food when we cook together!
I forgot to mention that Friday evening we watched " Gran Torino" with Clint Eastwood. We all enjoyed the movie. Even Katie, who as usual, had to put up a stink because she didn't want to watch it. She even made her homemade caramel corn for her dad. This time we made it with real popcorn and it came out even better. And oh did daddy like that!
Sunday morning I was up before my husband . Which is unusual. When he woke, we had coffee together and I made him a nice Fathers Day breakfast. Of course Katie was still asleep! So it was a peaceful morning!
When Katie woke up she gave her dad his card and framed photo we had made up for him. He really loved it and we decided to hang it over the fireplace. We will get the other ones printed that she took and make a collage of her photos.
Sunday afternoon we went out to our sons house for another BBQ. Our daughter-in-law is a wonderful cook, so anytime we are invited for dinner we usually go! They had a feast of grilled meats and side dishes. Jake got a t-shirt that said "Worlds Greatest Grandpa" and had Jack and Sarah's hand print on it!
Today is baby Jacks 1st birthday! Happy birthday baby boy! The photo above shows Jack chillin' after being splashed by his sister Sarah! It was nice being able to play with him yesterday. I tried to get a photo of Sarah but she wasn't up for the photo op!
After our delicious dinner, we visited a bit and went home. Katie stayed out there to spend the night. I wasn't feeling well so we didn't stay too long.
I think my hubby had a pretty good weekend although I know he wished it could have been longer. He had to leave last night.
I hope that everyone had a great weekend!
