Soccer and Date Night and Boating! Oh my!

Holy moly! I need a day off!!! Ha ha! What a weekend! After work last Friday, I was feeling a little burnt out. This is pretty typical of my Friday's. I like to snuggle up and relax with no agenda. Sounds so old lady doesn't it? I picked little miss up from daycare and we headed to the dollar store. I picked up a few nick knacks for Jordon's Father's Day basket along with some new craft materials. We never walk in there without Kaylee picking out a toy. This time it was this!

Too cute not to get for her. Then we headed home, for a nice quiet night. There may have been some pizza, and a movie involved!
Saturday, finally no rain!!! We were up bright and early. I headed out to Spin class at 8:15 in my brand new kicks! They were on sale and I think they will do the trick!! Seem comfy and to be providing good support.I came home from Spin, had a quick shower and then we were off the Kaylee's very first "soccer game", I use that term loosely because it was really a bunch of crazed 3 year olds running around on turf. That being said, she did awesome! I was so impressed. She had a great handle on the ball and looked cuter then any kid out there. I am not biased or anything!
We did however hit a wall. As it was the first game, we were out there about a half hour early to get a feel for things. Being an excited 3 year old meant, she started playing with the ball as soon as we arrived. So just over half way through the 1 hour session, she was tired and bored. She simply looked up and said "I want a snack and I want to go home". We tried to stick it out but ended up leaving 10 minutes early. Note to self, arriving more then 5 minutes early may result in meltdowns. 
Excited to head out to her first soccer game!

Zoomed in on this one to show her jumping with excitment! Too cute!
We arrived home and Kaylee had her snack and a little bit of quiet time while I hammered out a few chores. Then we worked on some crafts. Knowing she was going for a sleepover at my Aunt and Uncle's house that night, she wanted to make the girls (their 3 daughters) each a "present". We worked on a few crafts for about an hour before getting things ready for the evening.
Jordon and I rarely go far from home. We love to head out for a cold beer once in a while, but we usually stay close to home and have a babysitter at the house. Saturday however, my Uncle's girls said they would take Kaylee for a sleepover so we could head out for some fun! Awesome offer and one I could not turn down. I decided to get all dolled up for a night on the town with my hubby!

 While I proceeded to get ready, hubby slaved away mowing the front lawn, back lawn and the neighbours front and back lawn. He came inside, I am sure all he wanted to do was laze around on the couch, but I was having none of it!!! Being the wonderful hubs that he is, put himself together and we headed into town. We had a cold beer with the family, let Kaylee get settled (pfffft, didn't even see me once we arrived- she was off to have a blast with "the girls"). Then we headed downtown!

Duck lips!!!!
We had a few Keg gift cards that we decided to use that night and let me tell you.... YUM, YUM, YUM! It was incredible. The food is to die for, the service is out of this world and my company... Well he was just amazing. We laughed so much my stomach hurt. I truly believe you need that sometimes. You get so caught up in everyday life sometimes, you don't take the time to stop. Love, Laugh and just enjoy your partner. I am so glad we took Saturday night to do that.
We shared a bottle of wine and decided not to end the night there. We were remember, child free for the evening. We left the Keg to make the long steep decent to the waterfront. Man oh man, I did not think that one through... I was wearing my sassy 5 inch heels... Add 5 inch heels to a very steep hill and Jaymie a few glasses of red wine in... Hilarious... I had a pair of flip flops in my purse for a "just in case" situation. Just turns out I needed them a lot earlier in the night then I intended. We walked the rest of the way comfortably and enjoying the beautiful evening. We ended up heading towards the casino. We are not big gamblers. It is just too much money. That being said, we each took a 20, threw it in a machine and had a great time. To be honest, we could have been doing just about anything and had a good time. Getting out and doing something different was awesome though!
It was around midnight, we finished our over priced beers and decided to call a cab. We arrived home to 2 very happy to see us dogs but no sleeping 3 year old to check in on. I have to tell you... My heart was a little sad. I even sulked a little. Going out was awesome, not having to worry about getting up in the morning, that was great too... Coming home and having her not there... Well it kind of sucked.

Crazy how you can whine about getting up and having to deal with cranky toddlers... etc etc. But when they aren't there... Well I missed her.
Anywho.... We slept in all the way til 7:30. Then we jumped up to go get our little rugrat! We were arriving just as they were heading out to watch their youngest's soccer game. We tagged along to watch! I don't know if there is much that is cuter then a 3 1/2 year old on the side lines cheering and clamping for the girls playing that day! Freaking adorable!!!!!
Well, we left soccer and headed home to go out on our very first family boat ride. We have had this boat sitting in our driveway for close to a month but the weather has been so brutal that we have not had a chance to head out in it. It was a little windy, but overall, what a great family afternoon!

Fishing, playing Captain, Snoozin in Mom's lap and taking a snack break!
I know that this boat is going to give us some incredible memories! Brought me back to my childhood in northern Ontario all over again. Being out on the water, with my own child seemed kind of surreal. I thought about Dad teaching me to drive a boat, Mom packing our picnic's and making sure everyone was safe in life jackets and hats to cover our heads. And of my sister and I sitting up front loving every second of being on the water. Yesterday I looked over at my husband, with Kaylee on his lap teaching her to drive and could not take the smile off my face!
The wind picked up quite a bit, so we headed in and went home to enjoy the rest of Father's Day together. Kaylee proudly gave Daddy his present and advised him that she picked it out (slight exaggeration).
Father's Day Goodie basket!
We enjoyed some chicken fajitas and called er a night pretty early. Over all.. The best weekend in a really long time. I feel so grateful for the life we have. Only god knows, the ups and downs Jordon and I have had. We work hard for what we have and while we sometimes don't give as much to our relationship as we should, we know we love each other. This weekend was a great reminder of everything we have and how lucky we are!
How was your weekend? Did you spoil anyone?

Just because this is so darn funny....
I hope everyone eases into their week with a MARVELOUS Monday!!
