Adventures with Daddy....




Mike is such a fun, creative Daddy. He is the best at coming up with random/creative ideas that our girls love. Many, people told us when you have 3 kids you really have to tag team and divide them up for it to really work. We were learning the hard way that weekends were sometimes really difficult with the kids cause there is lots of down/unstructured time which is good for a little while, but our girls love need a plan! We now sit down every Thursday night to plan the weekend. I normally take the girls on Friday morning (Mike's day off) and we go do something together and let Mike rest, exercise, or do whatever he likes. I come home by noon and then we spend the rest of the day together. He takes E and A on Saturday mornings on some sort of adventure.
Last weekend they went to some horse ranch in Frisco that also hosts birthday parties. They loved it and got to jump in bounce houses, ride ponies, pet goats, and play on the playground. Anna is free so we only had to pay for Ellie which was $7. Another guy in our community group took his boys and said "it was the most fun he's ever had with his boys". Mike is quite the planner and always has a fun event for the girls on Saturday mornings. They also love to go to White Rock Lake to the dog park. I am so thankful to have a husband who loves me and loves our girls!

That is such a great idea Holly...to split it up and to plan it out on Thursday nights. We might have to do that. So thankful that God has blessed you with a great man!

That is awesome! I love it when our guys initiate time with the kids and it's not a burden at all. They actually enjoy that time with them=)
