getting high and saving the world

nom nom nom nom

Happy belated Father's Day to all the good dads out there!

My own dad was a very practical man, who didn't much care for Hallmark holidays.  But he was a great dad and wearer of impressive pocket protectors.

Back here on earth and in the near present, the guys came by and we all got out for a bit of nature.  Thankfully, no one wore a pocket protector.

For some reason, they must find the highest rock with the steepest drop-off.  See Chaco's shoes?  Apparently my acrophobia is strong enough that I don't even have to be the one in the high place to start needing to do my Lamaze breathing.

Since I couldn't bear to watch, I distracted myself by looking for a nearby geocache.

Maybe the guys figured the rock climbing wasn't as fun if I wasn't freaking out, so they joined a bit in the hunt and Chaco found the dang thing among so many good hiding places.

So it was a productive and adventurous time, and how 'bout that blue sky?

On Saturday, Meego, Magnum, and I went to see Wonder Woman and enjoyed it.  She is, of course, a badass, but there is one aspect of the movie which left me wondering, "THAT is the choice for [spoiler]??" because it wasn't really working for me. For those who have seen the movie, I wonder your thoughts, but for those who've not seen it, I won't get into it.  But it certainly was not a deal breaker.

I found the movie to be quite artsy as well as actiony.  All in all, a good way to spend the afternoon.  Thumbs up.

I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, but looking at the guys climbing all of the rocks it appears you are getting more action scenes outside :)

Gosh, you're right Jimmy. I'M Wonder Woman!

I looked for a LONG time and finally saw Chaco's shoes. No wonder you were freaking out!
Our Father's Day celebration did not compare in the least. I feel bad, because my hubby certainly deserves father of the year this time around. Although, he would much prefer our nothingness to climbing out on a cliff!

Abby said...

I know just how the hubby feels. Happy belated Father's Day to him! The hike was nice otherwise, and I tell myself the cliffhanging is good for my "growth" or something like that.

I finally found the shoes! My kids do that to me too!

What is this Wonder Woman spoiler? I guess I should give in and go see it. :)

Abby said...

I didn't see the shoes until after I saw the photo on my computer. Probably a good thing. Wonder Woman was good, if nothing else the theater has air conditioning!

It freaks me out when my kids are daredevils like that. As for Wonder Woman - their choice for what? What?? I'm curious! I saw it and loved her badass self too. Especially that her hair and makeup looked fabulous even after she kicked Nazi ass.

*it was Ares. I mean, I know he had to be disguised, so that was okay. But once we knew it was HIM, he shoulda transformed into something more Ares-like instead of keeping on looking like the same dude IMHO*
But other than that, all was fine. I think her title is Wonder Woman because all the women Wonder how she keeps herself so put together through all that mayhem!
