Since James is one incredible father I decided this Father's Day should be pretty incredible too.
The weekend started with a good old guy's night out on Friday. Of course I wasn't going to be left all alone to my own devices on a Friday night- so I decided to invite the wives over with the kids for a yummy party with homemade apps and cocktails (and an outdoor movie for the kiddos!)
On Sunday James and his buddy Grant got to golf all day at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa (thank you Living Social for a great deal- and thank you Kate for telling me about it!)
Well, once I heard that the Ojai Valley Inn was voted one of the top family friendly resorts in the US.... annnnddd once I heard there was a tiny kiddie pool for the toddlers- I decided "hey, why not stay the night and make a true trip out of it?!!"
That way the boys could golf and I could lounge by the pool (can I hear "pool service") while the kids played their hearts out. A WIN, WIN, WIN!
After a couple hours of sitting in traffic (can you say YUCK!) Kate and the boys finally made it to the hotel to have dinner with all of us.
I can't say enough how great this hotel is for families.
We had an absolute blast there.
Thank you Jamers for being such a great husband and father.
You are my rock, my best friend and biggest fan.
I love you!
