Guess what we did today.....

But first, let me tell you, I'm busy.

Weddings have taken over my life. Well, not really actual weddings, more like the planning, readying and worrying about them.

That and the lack of rain.  That's worrying me.  Not that we've become farmers, but I do have that impending wedding party at my house, AND I have these flowers... and I'm sick and tired of watering and worrying about them.... and it's only June.  And let's not even discuss the grass situation.

Anyway, my life is hectic, honestly it seems like it's Monday then it's Friday and I have to wonder what the hell happened to the rest of the days.

 I DID, however, manage to work in a really fun lunch the other day.  I met two of my college roommates in Oakbrook.  My friend Jan lives about an hour from here, so she and I see each other, but our friend Marcia lives in Austin, Texas and I just 'found her' a couple years ago, and visited her on one of my Texas sojourns.  She was in Chicago for a wedding, I'm so glad she called me to set up lunch.

Oh my, there was a whole lot of laughing, and reminiscing and discussions on really, extremely important things.  Funny how you can get together with some people and it's like you are instantly back where you once were.  And how the mention of a yogurt maker, teenage parties, scattered laundry,  boys we knew and might have dated, some with interesting nicknames that are better left unpublished, and other great memories can make you laugh and wish you could go back to the wonderful time college was.

But, you can't. So, I got into my car, collected my traveling husband, and home we came.

Yesterday, we did things around here.... but today, FATHER'S DAY... we loaded up and headed into the city to spend the day on the boat.  And I ask you, what is better than all three kids, two fiancee's a hot sunny day on lake Michigan and a couple bottles of Prosecco?  All that was missing was Ally, she had to work.

Scarlett started off with us, but had to take off and head to work herself, so we headed to her restaurant for dinner, and guess who our waitress was!  They made a fuss over us, and we had a DELICIOUS dinner.

Here's a view of Father's Day, honoring a great dad, and doing what MY DAD, also a great dad, would have loved to have done on this day.  I'm sure he approved.

the men...

the man of the hour...

Mark and his girls...

and with all three kids

missing Ally...

fun times, I tell you.
