Happy Father's Day

I didn't get to spend Father's Day with my Dad, but he made a quick trip here the weekend before so that was good. And I didn't get a picture of him but he was right behind me when I took this one of Granny Bev swimming with the kiddos. So that will just have to work!! Hope you had a relaxing Father's Day!! :) Love you!
Matt started off Father's Day Weekend with Donuts with Daddy at Emma and Aiden's school. IT was cute. Emma's shirt said "My Daddy is the Big Kahuna" and Aiden's said "My Dad is Rad". They were so excited to have him at school to eat with them.
That evening we headed to the Buffalo river with some of Matt's buddies and their families.

The kids were loving the camp fire! And they seemed to like roasting their sticks more than marshmallows. Ha!
Mason wasn't so sure about sitting on a pink bed and he SURE wasn't going to watch Barbie, so they settled on Monsters vs. Aliens and did a little coloring.
Aiden and Riley decided to watch Incredibles in the living room.
In the morning, Matt cooked us breakfast. It was delicious!
Then we headed to the swimming hole. It was really pretty and the kids loved jumping off this big rock in the middle.
But most of the time was spent trying to catch tadpoles and other little animals.
Kelly caught at crawdad and they thought he might like a Dorito. :) He didn't.
We were just about to call it a day and Aiden wanted to go back in for one more little dip. Emma and some of the other kids were on "the big rock"...
...And then we saw this little guy. Matt's friend Kelly was just like " Uh, Suzanne, don't look behind you, but you might want to get out of the water." Calm much? You know... its just a SNAKE swimming towards my baby boy!! Oh my, it was the most scared I think I have been in a very long time!! I was politely suggesting to Matt to "GO GET HIM!!! GET AIDEN!!!" so he did. Phew. I didn't get a picture the first time because I was a little panic-y (you know, slightly) but then the darn thing came back once we were all out of the water!! I think then I was politely suggesting to Matt that he shoot it or something.
So after all that excitement we headed back to the cabin to just chill and have dinner. The next day was Father's Day!! We woke up and gave Matt his presents. :) Then we headed to Promenade. We had a little DQ...
...Then took Emma to get her ears pierced. She was soooo ready!! Here is before.
And here is after!! She did GREAT! No tears or anything! She picked some nice pink cz. So that was cute. Ha! No really, they are cute and she has been so diligent about letting me clean them. :)
That afternoon we went to a Father's Day picnic with Matt's family. Emma was so excited to show Mema her earrings.
And Aiden was just excited to visit with Mema.
And do some swingin'
Emma quickly shed her clothes and "accidentally" turned on the water. *yeah right*
Serving up some ice cream.
Then the cousins took a little ride in the paddle boat.
