Once again there's 5

Matt got home on friday. We had planned to pick him up somewhere around 3 & 5. Of course you know the army changes everything so I try to plan nothing! Matt sent me a text around 11am of where he was & it was alot closer than I expected. Then the rush began! The kids & I had planned a big Father's day dinner since he wasn't here for Father's Day. We hadn't even started on it so yea I was kinda flippin out lol!! I gave 3 kids a bath then myself. Rushed to find the cutest outfits for the kids & of course me because thats just what I do. I know I'm silly=) Matt called around 1:00 saying he was at the unit but couldn't leave just yet but would call soon. Well, by 2:00 we had all had enough of this waiting so we left lol! Long story short the kids & I took a long drive around the town,cleaned out the car & sat in the car through a major storm that included hail,terrible winds & horrible lightening but by 5:00 we had Daddy!! Headed home for some spaghetti & meatballs. The weekend was spent shopping a little but mostly just being all together. Oh, and planning a trip next weekend to Cincinnati. We try to go every summer for a weekend. This weekend Kings Island is having a huge 4th of July celebration so that should be fun. Then Sunday we'll be going to the Cincinnati Zoo. I Love going to the zoo. I'm like a kid again & I can't get to the next exhibit fast enough!
So thats what we have been up to the last few days. Happy wife,happy kids & an extremely happy dog! Just goes to show ya the Army may have our soldier every now & then but we Always have his heart♥
