Father's Day Weekend

What a weekend! Punkito's front right molar is coming in so things got a little ugly at times this weekend. But we salvaged as best we could and had a great time.

Saturday started with a nearly five-mile run. There are no pictures of this because we don't need to immortalize my shame. Slower than elephants in mud. But we did it.

Then we tried to go to some "Bubblepalooza" event at the Long Center. It was... lame. We saw shockingly few bubbles. They did have one of those giant parachutes so that was kind of fun and Em liked drawing with chalk, but that was about all there was to it.
We redeemed our afternoon with Torchy's. Man, I could eat that every day. Em was totally loving these limes, until she bit into the peel. Hilarious faces.
Post nap we went to Deep Eddy Pool, since it was on our mural bucket list and we love Deep Eddy anyway.
It's perfect for Punkito because it has one of those beach entries and she can run in and out to her heart's content instead of climbing in and out of stairs. The water is spring-fed so it's incredibly cold, but once you get used to it, it feels awesome. Em is totally fearless - she will just run in like she doesn't notice the water, even when it's up to her chin. As the sun went down, she was shivering but we still couldn't get her out. I think we will be living there this summer.
Father's Day was a bit rough, but we still managed to celebrate our favorite guy with some of his favorite things - chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, cookie cake, and new polos.
We are pretty lucky to have such a great husband and father and we love spending every second with him on weekends. And we love summer in Austin!
