Relaxing Weekend and Father's Day!

I just had to start the blog with this picture as it is my new favorite - THANKS TARA!!!!Shane and I had a wonderful weekend!!! Friday morning I drove down to Plano to meet Shane who had already been there for a couple days. We wanted to take advantage of one last weekend to ourselves before we are a family of 5!!

This weekend was exactly what we needed!! Shane has been swamped with work and I have been so wrapped up in baby stuff and two other rugrats =), I needed a break! We stayed at a super nice hotel in the Legacy area in Plano, right in the middle of a bunch of fun shops and restaurants. We were able to get in some shopping, as well as have dinner with some friends, including our TX besties, Seth and Brittney! We had such a good time with them, all the way to 1am Saturday night/Sunday morning!!! Shane got a massage Saturday afternoon while I got a fabulous pedicure! It really was one of the most relaxing weekends EVER!!! But we were anxious to get home to our kiddos!! When I say we shopped, we shopped for the all three of our sweeties!!
We were not home until late evening on Father's Day, so we really did not get a chance to celebrate (Claire did insist on she and Owen giving Shane his cards they made him before school was out, all be it 10pm last night =)) with Shane. So tonight we ordered in his favorite pizza and had our own mini celebration! I have not even seen my camera in days (still hoping it is the bottom of my purse...) so I have nothing from our mini vacay or tonight, but Tara snapped some shots of the kids while we were gone that are too cute!!!

I had just gotten into Plano and I received this pic on my Blackberry from Tara, from her phone!! It was titled "Look at your daughter..." and then she prefaced it with "I swear she is wearing tons of sunscreen". Only Claire...
Happy Father's Day Shane!! We love you so much and you are the greatest Daddy ever!! Claire loves you because you protect her from everything and ALWAYS listen to her many stories and watch her performances =). Owen loves you because you are always willing to wrestle ANYTIME and however long as he wants. There are many reasons why I love you, but a few are because you are the best role model for our kids and love us all so much!!
