Weekend Update

FIRST, Happy Father's Day to all of the Dads out there!!!

On to the Weekend Update:

Friday night, after Calvin and I made dewicious homemade pizzas, we all headed to Tom and Susan's. At the last minute, they decided to have the grandkids for a sleepover! We had too much going on Saturday to let Calvin stay, but he got to play with his cousins. He had a really good time! The best part was watching Jaden and Caleb rollerblade and roller skate in the basement... they kept falling down! It was very funny to watch!

Saturday was my cousin Chelsea's wedding to her now-husband, Chance. First, I have to tell you that Chelsea looked absolutely gorgeous. She truly glowed on her big day! The wedding was so nice - we got to see family that we don't get to see often enough. We picked up precious baby, Cooper John before the wedding so he could be there, too!

Later that evening, we had Father's Day at Niemerg's for my dad's side including my Dad, Grandpa, and uncles. Can't really beat Niemerg's!!! Good food! :-) Calvin picked out 2 Hallmark music cards for Dad and Grandpa. However, Grandpa didn't hear the music 'til Tiffany put it up to his ear! They need to make cards where you can read the lips for the hearing impaired! ;-)

Calvin and Cooper had a sleepover! Cooper slept all night! I did not! I was up every few hours checking to make sure he was still breathing since he hadn't woke up. I know... I'm paranoid... But, we don't have him often enough to know his sleep habits. Now, I'm sleepy.

Sunday... Happy Father's Day! Today was a very good day! We were up around 7:30 with Cooper. He was all smiles and giggles when he woke up... so refreshing. Calvin woke-up around 8:30 and was eager to give Dad his Father's Day gift! He got Chris a new CD player for his truck. It needed a new one! And, Chris got a very cool green and yellow plaid tie to go with a new yellow dress shirt. Likey Likey! :-) The best part of the gift were the cards: 1 came from where I uploaded pictures of Chris and Calvin and on the front of the card it said, "Dad, You're #1." This is funny because Calvin aways tells us he's #1! The 2nd card was super special because it was a Hallmark Indiana Jones music/recordable card that had Calvin's recording of, "I love you, DAD!" and the Indiana Jones theme song!!!

Cooper left by 10:30 to go to Mom's for awhile. They were both happy to see each other!

We headed out to the Probst lake lot for Father's Day! I think Tom really liked the Home Depot measuring tape gift card from the family! It was so nice to see so much of the family out together! Calvin got to play with lots of his cousins.... but mostly, Stella! Those two are so close in age and get along so well.

While we were out at the lake, most of the kids went swimming! Good times! Then, Chris and Calvin got in. Now, Calvin couldn't touch so he was decked out in his life jacket and arm floaties. I was proud of Calvin for getting in since he couldn't touch. He stayed attached to Chris most of the time. Then... they swam (Chris swam... Calvin just tagged along) to the neighbor's dock and climbed up. They headed out towards the diving board. First, Chris dove in. Then... after a little convincing, Calvin put all of his trust in Chris and jumped off of the diving board!!! I was SO PROUD!

Overall, we had a good weekend... busy, but good! Online classes for Summer semester start tomorrow. Wish me luck! I'm having problems uploading pictures to Dropshots. As soon as the savy techie peeps over there fix the problem there will be LOTS of new pics! Stay tuned!
I hope everyone else had a great Father's Day weekend!!!
