A lazy summer? I think not.
Jack has always been a hard worker....a trait I admire in my lovely hubbie. We both loved our work and dove full-in when we were "just married." Now that Mackie's here, though, priorities have somewhat changed and he can't help but feel torn when he's away from his girls all day long....and in June, I literally mean all.day.long!
So, we came up with a fun way for him to have special daddy-daughter bonding time with Mackie this summer. On Wednesdays (Jack's day off), Jack and Mack will have special date days. It's a win (for Jack), a win (for Mack), and a win (for me!).
Today my sweeties went to Dillon Nature Center to feed the ducks (oddly enough there were no ducks around), so Mackie did her next favorite thing: push all of the buttons and point to the frogs and snakes and other disgusting creatures in the Visitor's Center. They then enjoyed a picnic lunch at the church and played on the playground. Both came home with sun-kissed cheeks, glistening brows, and exhausted from the fun morning. Must explain why they're both taking naps right now! :)
Jack also has Sundays off and we've already decided to make that family day - church, time together, and nothing on the agenda. Despite our hectic lives and work schedules, we're making this summer "our" summer - the last one as a family of three!
