Commercial comes on about KY Yours and Mine gel.
In this commercial, we get to see a frantic couple run to their bedroom each with their gel in hand, jump in bed and make some remark about hurrying before the kids get home.
Then it goes to them in the rumpled bed and you hear a door slam and a kid call out for her parents. Then they say something about how great the gel is.
Honestly, I was barely paying attention. Apparently though, Brooks was paying attention. He is 9. Here is our conversation after viewing that commercial.
Brooks: Commercials these days are getting sick.
Me: What? Huh?(like I said, I was barely watching the TV)
Brooks: That is sick. Those two people...I don't know...making out. When I was a kid, the only commercials you saw are like, Barney. Not that junk! That is sick.(shakes head)
Me: What? Huh? lol
I am still stuck on the "when I was a kid" comment. What is 9 these days? lol
Pretty smart kid. I think maybe we need to have that "talk". Apparently he knows a little more than I thought. Kids! Geesh.

We spent the day on the boat. It was a glorious day. Not too hot, not too sunny. Just right. Here is my mom. She is beautiful. I can't tell you how old she is, but you wouldn't believe me anyway.
Caitey, my beautiful girl.
Brooks and his cousin looking all cool. His cousin has a Raiders of the Lost Arc hat. He wears it all the time but was nice enough to lend it to Brooks. And Brooks was all sorts of cool in it.
Dont you agree? Just look at this cutie!
Then, after we came off of the boat, we enjoyed some of these....Yes, that is the baby with a crab. Look, if they can sit up in a chair, they can pick their own damn crabs! OK, so maybe we help them a little bit...Here is my dad.And here is my brother with his sweet baby.
So, there you have it. A wonderful Fathers Day.

Keep reading for another post about our weekend camping trip.
Here you see one of the "water falls". As you can tell, the water was pretty calm and shallow. So perfect for the kids. We felt very secure with them floating down there about 500 yards and then walking back up. It is nice having kids old enough that you don't feel you need to be tethered to them anymore. Even Molly our cockapoo had a blast in the creek. She would play fetch for hours. I am serious, literally hours! She even dove down under the water for the ball. Mike said that he was ready to rescue her at one point because she was down under the water for over 30 seconds. But it felt like minutes and he was afraid she was drowning. But nope, she was just fine. Hey, she wanted her ball and she was going to get it!
OK, last picture. This is me doing what I did whenever I wasn't cooking for 5 kids or cleaning up after 5 kids. Sitting in my chair, relaxing. Ahhh! Wait, where is my beer? Oh, never mind, I found it.

This week is the kids last week of school. Which I usually am really excited about. This year however, I am a little bummed about it. I am not ready for them to be home all day long every day for the next couple of months. It isn't as if I don't love them, or even enjoy their company. No, the problem is they are little pains in the asses lately. Well, actually, Brooks is still fairly decent but the other two, TEENAGERS, they are a royal pain in the ass! They pretty much fight constantly. So I am not really looking forward to that.
Anyway, this week Mike is going to Vegas for *work*. Um, ok. Whatever. lol I have field day on Monday and a volunteer luncheon. Tuesday I think I am free. Wed. is the end of year swim party and picnic and I have a lot of running around and setting up and cleaning up, etc. for that. But it is a fun day so I am looking forward to it. Assuming of course it doesn't rain. Which it probably will. Usually does every year. The rain date is Thursday. If we have to have it on Thursday, I will have a problem because Brooks has try outs for the travel soccer team. Sigh. Then Friday we are leaving for a camping weekend. SO I need to shop and pack for that.
Needless to say, I will be busy this week. And since Mike wont be here, we are eating easy easy meals.
Monday: Spaghetti and zucchini
Tuesday: probably leftover spaghetti and a salad
Wed: picnic-hamburgers and hot dogs
Thursday: Chicken and salad
Friday: camping so burgers and potato salad
Saturday: teryaki chicken or pork, corn and potatoes
Sunday: mountain pies(pizza, tuna melts, etc.)
Have a great week everyone!
