Yeah! We made the 6 hour drive to Branson today. And it was a successful trip. I have to thank Brassy Apple for the great tips on her website. I did the time line pictures and put them in order to give my 4 year old something to look forward to along the way. He was in my in-laws car and they said he LOVED that. Watching for the next thing up the road. I also made an I spy book but since Owen can't read we are saving that for the resturants. Mark was good even though it was hard for him to nap. Here is a picture of him. The net bag next to him I filled up with books, coloring books, toys, etc...... Easy for them to reach.

Today was bitter sweet. I have a wonderful husband to help celebrate Father's Day with. I had ordered him some custom Chocolates from my friend Holly. So, to throw him off I made him breakfast and Owen and I took it to him in bed. And then when I got home from church I gave him his chocolates. He loved them. They were Butterfinger crunch and Rice Krispy berry Mini footballs. Owen woke up with a sore throat after running a fever last night so Nathan stayed home with him. Since I teach 1st grade Bible Class I had to go to church. The Bitter part was that Dad and I are still not on the best of terms. I did send him a card but that is all I could get myself to do to celebrate him. Maybe things will be better next year. We will see. The Bridge still needs mending!
But, back to my Husband. He is a great father to our kids. He comes home from a busy day tired and still spends time with them both. Mark screachs with glee when he walks though the door. And before Owen goes to bed each night Nathan lays down with him to share some cartoon time. I am very lucky to have him.
