The Best Day

Finally we had some family time this weekend. Matt has been off since friday. He had planned for this time off work because he had some military training out of town but those were changed so we have had him to ourselves all weekend! Friday was spent getting some things taken care of so the rest of the weekend we could spend doing whatever we wanted. Yesterday afternoon Matt's mom & brother visited us. The kids showed her every single thing they got for Christmas then we all went to McDonalds Playplace. The kids of course had a blast but us adults did as well. It's so much fun to see your kids have fun huh?! But, more importantly we were doing something all together. Something we haven't been able to do for awhile. We got them a sundae & were headed to the car. Allison was holding Matt's hand. She looked up at him & said in her sweet raspy voice "Daddy this is the Best Day".

Isn't that the best??? We recently were running around and so busy but made time to stop at a local Burger King and let the kids go play. When we were done, they also said "This was the best day ever".

I mean, who knew that something to simple could bring so much joy :)

Glad you've had Matt all to yourself this weekend, that's is wonderful Court.

I just love days like this. We took Miller yesterday to the Burger King Play station. Scott has never been able to go with us so it was his first time watching Miller play....we had such a great weekend too. I love times like this.

Oh I bet that just melted your heart to hear her say that was the best day! How sweet! It's so nice when you can get some down time and just enjoy that family time together - and going to McDonald's for a sundae is a wonderful treat :)
