good monday morning everyone---
since i didn't post about father's day over the weekend- i thought i would blog now about our father's day weekend---hmmmm i hope mondays don't become my weekend journal---
compared to last weekend, this one was a lot more relaxing----
my sister martha had my dad down for dinner at her house---we didn't go because we weren't sure about our boys--working out a time to see frank---we saw my dad at church--robyn gave him a t-shirt that said something about a cool grand-dad-and i gave him sugar-free candy---he seemed to be tickled by the shirt and held it up, in the coffee and doughnut time for people to see!
ended up my son dustin (robhye) and his family had the stomach flu at their house--we were suppose to watch the kids for adie to go to a family wedding on saturday night--but poor thing couldn't go, and dustin was working--so no see there---i haven't yet talked to them today, but at last call--no one else had come down with it-----my son colin and his wife kelli had us over for dinner---it was really good--barbecue, baked beans, corn on the cob, potato salad and cherry cobbler with ice-cream! we got dinner, and a great show from the girls! they gave frank a devotional book--it looks like a good one-
robyn gave her dad a john mayer cd---i gave him joseph prince's new book--"destined to reign"----and we gave him a "this is what a cool grand-daddy looks like" shirt--
after church, we stopped and picked up some chinese food for lunch--frank's favorite--
over the weekend we rented three movies, which i will briefly review now haha---
"post grad"---hmmm--pretty much for robyn---the movie would be "okay" for a tv one---but all i could really think while watching it, was---poor michael keeton---wasn't he a great actor once--with great roles--
"the double"--with richard gere----this one was the "frank" pick---robyn and i were determined to hate it but.......it was actually pretty good----it reminded me of "breach"--which if you have not seen it--give it a look see---i loved that movie and it is one of the very few, i have chosen to watch more than once----but i have to say, as we watched "the double"---i couldn't get away from the fact of how much robyn's ballroom owner and teacher looks like richard gere---we knew that before--but seeing him again--we realize he looks even more like him than we thought---
"we bought a zoo"---now i have to say, i think i would like any movie that has matt damon in it---i have loved him ever since "good will hunting"--which is probably in a tie for my favorite movie--along with "with honors"-----colin and kelli had told us how much they loved this movie and how it touched them---it was very sweet---the trailers for this movie, make it seem totally different---it was much deeper and solid--
well now that i have told you way more than you probably wanted to know about our father's day weekend--i will sign off for now-----ease on into this week!
