Saturday was the MAIN EVENT. Evan's birthday. The setting? Think chaos. Think children screaming, wailing and giggling. Think too many people in too small a space. Think ugly mechanical rats "singing" censored top 40 music. Think microwaved pizza. Think.... CHUCK E. CHEESE. Me? I found it stressful, impersonal and exhausting. My kids? They were in heaven. They all had a blast, and I of course can't argue with that. There was no party preparation, no clean up and it was relatively affordable as far as parties go, so I refuse to complain, even though it is sort of an adult version of hell.

Sunday was Father's Day. I tried to convince my dear husband that to honor him on his special day, I should leave him to have quality time with the boys and check myself into a spa, but since that was a no-go we decided on a day at the beach and it was awesome! We packed a picnic lunch and headed to Cull Canyon. I cannot believe that I have lived in the bay area for almost three years and have never been there before. It is a beautiful, warm spot with clean shallow water. We ended up bumping into some friends there and spent the afternoon eating, swimming and soaking up summer.

So there you have it, a beautiful fun filled weekend. I'm looking forward to many more this summer!
