Father’s Day Weekend Recap

June 17, 2013

It was another busy weekend for us over here! It all started with Friday’s series of unfortunate events. I had planned to head down to Food Truck Friday early, I mean leaving the house by 10:30 early, because the new truck Chedda Heads was opening and I knew it would be busy. Well, Layne had installed the new car seat Thursday night and I was having trouble adjusting the straps on it. 45 minutes and a ton of swearing later, I finally made it down to a very busy event. Some people had already been waiting an hour for their gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches! Alix arrived just as I was and we were hesitant to try in line but the only other option was fries. Alix stood in line while I got us coffees but when the line barely moved, we decided to go for fries. Once we had our fries and coffees in hand, trying to find a place to sit, the sky opened up and started pouring. Now we were struggling to keep babes dry and fries from getting soggy. We ended up just coming back to my place but of course the rain quit by the time we got there. Ridiculous.

Saturday we had much better luck getting some grilled cheese. It was  a bit of a wait, but it was tasty! I look forward to trying some more sandwiches. I ran into Amie coming to check out Chedda Heads also!

After devouring some food, drinking some coffee and wandering around the market for a few hours, we headed to the park next door to see my mom who was participating in an outdoor art festival. It was super windy and chilly though so we didn’t stick around too long. I took my parents dog back to the house with us and we curled up with a big mug of tea watching Homeland while Liam napped.

Has anyone else watched Homeland? I finished Season 1 yesterday and I’m already antsy for Season 2. I’m not usually very good with political shows, I just don’t understand  a lot of that stuff and have a hard time following along, but this was really good. I highly recommend watching it on (Canadian) Netflix.

After my parents were done taking down the art display, we were going to go for dinner. Of course it was a Saturday night right at 6 though and every where we tried had an hour long wait. Since it was too close to Liam’s bed time to risk waiting that long, we decided to just come back to my place and order Chinese. It was also an hour wait for delivery but at least I could put Liam to bed. Layne ended up getting called into work so I watched more Homeland, haha.

Sunday Liam woke up at 6am despite being up an hour past his bed time. I was excited for Layne to get up so I could cook him a Father’s Day breakfast and give him his gift. The stinker slept in until 11:30 though so I was quite bored by then. Liam and I had already made a teepee fort, gone and got coffee for Layne from Starbucks, napped (while I finished the Homeland finale), etc. I finally just started cooking and opened the bedroom door to let the bacon smell waft in and wake him up. If I hadn’t, we wouldn’t have had time for the rest of the days activities.

Layne really enjoyed his bacon and eggs breakfast and the bottle of whiskey scented beard oil I ordered for him off Etsy. After Liam had his mid-day nap, we headed off to the pool! It was our first time taking Liam swimming. He was a little unsure at first, but once he got used to it he had a BLAST. It was so adorable watching him kick and splash and giggle.

We thought he would have been just wiped by the time we got home but he fought his nap so we headed over to our friends house for a Father’s Day BBQ. I got stuck on kid duty while the men/dads cooked.

Aren’t they the cutest?

It was well past Liam’s bed time by the time we got home and I was completely wiped as well. I had hoped for a bit of a sleep in this morning but had no such luck. I have another busy day today with some coffee dates and Lindsey’s gender reveal party plus I hope I can squeeze in a run since I missed #sundayrunday yesterday.

How was everyone’s Father’s Day? 
Anyone else watch Homeland?

    Sounds like a good weekend! I wish the weather was a tad nicer, dumb June 😉
    Where did you order Chinese from? I love Chinese food but we only ever get Manchu at the mall lol.
    We did not do much for Father’s Day, Chad called his Dad and that was about it.
    I have not, but I might need some series to get into for mat leave! lol

    Father’s/Grandfather’s day was great! Got to spend time with both the Kid and K2 (who I’m pretty sure is way too young to be enjoying Cool Beans coffee!). I wonder where Liam gets his aquatics skills from? Looks like he already swims better than his Grandpa.
    Homeland is one of the best shows on TV (IMHO).
