Father's Day weekend (part 2)

We spent Father's Day weekend part 1 doing fun things as a whole family with Scott.  Part 2 happened somewhat unintentionally.   

I had a super fun procedure done on my back yesterday.  My back was shot up with cortisone so that I could finally move normally 3 1/2 months after herniating a disc.  The doc said I should rest all day Friday, which I gladly did, since it the recovery has been a whole lot more painful that I'd anticipated.  I was supposed to be up and moving almost normally today.  Um, no.  Instead I am stuck in bed because I still cannot move.  Aren't these shots supposed to make me feel better instead of worse?  Grr.

OK, enough complaining.  
(It's my blog though, it's supposed to be all about me, right?)

Since I'm out commission for the weekend, Scott has been doing all kinds of fun things with the girls.  They've been to the park, they've played games, they've dressed up as cows to get free food at Chick-Fil-A and this morning they did a workshop at Lowe's. Scott kept me updated with photos from his phone.  

Here's the before shot.  Heidi looks pretty confident with that hammer.  Maybe it's because we let them play with real tools.  I never have to hide the tools unless boys come over to play.

And here's the after shot with their treasure boxes.  They're planning to paint them tonight after they visit 7-11 for free Slurpees.  Thank goodness for a free food weekend.  At least I can be assured the kids are eating something!

Thank you Scott - you're the best dad and a great nurse too!

Yikes, I had no idea your back still wasn't better. So sorry to hear that you are still in pain. But wow, your kiddos are so cute!

I am so sorry to here that you are still in so much pain. I agree with Laurie it sounds like you need dinners, I will call you today.

I'm so sorry you are flat on your back . . . again. You just aren't the "flat on your back" kind of person. It's kinda of dangerous!

But while you are down, tell Scott to purchse, Molokai by Allen Brennert. It's a historical fiction about the leper colony in Hawaii. Very well researched and written. Get well soon!
