As I mentioned- We took Devin to the Crawdad's game for Father's Day! Chatham and Devin were selected as one other the father/child teams to participate in a contest.
The prize was a free oil change for Devin, and a bag of cotton candy for Chatham! He was in HEAVEN!!
As we were leaving the stadium we stopped for a few of the mandatory ball game pictures.

Chatham loves to dress up just as much as the girls do! His current favorite is his pirate costume.
He might have a little Captain in him!
Every good pirate must find a princess to spend the rest of his life with (I totally staged this).

Chatham's face in the one above is SO funny- he's like REALLY what is she doing! I can only imagine the love these two will share as teenagers!
I had a ball editing these! There were 21 total pictures and 9 keepers. Maggie sat so still, but had a hard time looking at me with 20+ ducks all squawking under the bridge.
Both kids are good at saying CHEESE, just not at the same time! We'll keep working on that!

Stella's Daddy is in Afghanistan right now and he DID get the pictures in time for Father's Day which makes up for my forgetfulness, right?!?!?
We continued our photo shoot with some dress up and tea partying.
The girls had fun! Chatham dressed up like a pirate, then a dragon- and when he pulled out the Panther's helmet Harper immediately went for it- it's here FAVORITE princess accessory- HA!
Harper and Stella had a BALL! We turned on some music and they shook their booties all over the playroom!!

Father's Day was CRAZY BUSY, but all fun activities that we planned- no obligations.
Maggie went to the park with us for some playtime and a picnic. We had two different people comment on how well behaved she is- she didn't chase the ducks, and laid in the shade with her treats and water bowl while we ate.
After our picnic we packed up and headed home to go swimming at Jean Marie's.

I took Chatham on a date Friday- our library was showing Peter Pan on the big screen FOR FREE- This was Chatham's first movie! He loved it, sat in his seat 90% of the time and ate his popcorn.
We still have thirty minutes to kill before going back to school to pick up Harper, AND Chatham still had some money left on his Dairy Queen gift card, so we stopped in for ice cream! Chatham ordered and paid for his single dipped cone all by himself and was SO proud of his independence!!

Conover is the little town where I grew up. It never had a lot to do there. A tiny library- so everyone goes the Newton one. A tiny park- so every goes to the parks in Hickory. They recently starting having a farmers market- but it's a quarter of the size of Hickory's market.... two weekends ago they opened the new Conover Recreation Park- it's next to the new BIG library they built last year. We went to check it out and were VERY impressed!
Harper was the hit of the parent section- at least 6 people come over to compliment me on her sweet disposition and HILARIOUS bursts of laughter!
I had all three little monkeys pose for some pictures! T hey are such good sports, and I know after two days of my camera they are ready to be rid of me!
Harper waited on some rocks while the big kids took a potty break. Then we cruised the walking trails before heading home for naps and Daddy time (while Lisa and I shopped).
What a fun and busy weekend- I feel like the kids got to do everything they wanted to- no time outs, no tantrums, and minimal bickering. I wish every weekend could be this carefree- but alas I have piles of dishes, laundry, and toys that need washing and picking up!
