Father's Day Weekend

I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating all of the fathers in their lives this weekend… I know we sure did!   

Friday night we had dinner at Five Guys, picked out all of the lighting for our house addition, and then took the kids for frozen yogurt to reward them for not getting us kicked out of Lowe’s. ;o)  When we got home there was a little time before bed, so the kids ran around the back yard to burn off some of their fro-yo sugar. 

Brian and I enjoyed a quiet evening binge watching Parenthood, and we indulged in big slices of cookie cake to kick off his Father’s Day weekend celebration.  We are always trying to outdo each other to see who can get the funniest or craziest phrases written on the cake… we’ve had some ridiculous things put on these cakes, and the people at the store never even bat an eye!  You can tell them to put something totally absurd on there, and they don’t even question it.  I’m sure they’ve seen it all, though!  The best part is hearing them say it (and spell it) back to you to make sure they’ve written it down correctly.  Hilarity. 

Saturday we lazed around the house for most of the day until it was time to take B’s dad out for dinner.  He chose Outback (yessss) and it was delicious as always (from what I could tell since I was choking down bites in between cutting up Jacob’s chicken and keeping food on Olivia’s tray… she was shoveling it in faster than I could hand it to her).  We ended the evening at B’s dad’s house, watching baseball on TV and chasing Olivia from room to room.  There’s something about Grandpa’s house that makes Olivia want to run all over creation. 

Sunday morning the kids piled in our bed to give Brian his Father’s Day gifts, and we all spent the morning hanging out and playing… no honey-do projects for Daddy this weekend, but I’m sure we’ll more than make up for that when the addition is done and it comes time to get everything organized! ;o)  We had our usual lunch at Brian’s mom and step-dad’s house in the early afternoon, and then I enjoyed some quiet time in my office before heading to my parents’ house to celebrate my daddy.  (Just when I thought I was done with my office makeover, I came up with the most exciting idea ever for the wall behind my door!  This project is going to take some time, but I will definitely be sharing it with you when it’s finished.)  We ended our weekend with spaghetti, wine, some good tunes, and my Momma and Daddy’s company. 

Brian and I are so blessed to have both of our sets of parents alive, healthy, and in the same city as us… I love that the kids get to see them all nearly every weekend, and I will never take that for granted.  We truly enjoy all of the time spent with each and every one of them.  

I was totally clueless that he was making all of those wacky faces, but I should have known...

I am also very blessed to have such a wonderful and loving husband who loves our babies just as much as I do… he’s a hand holder, story reader, toy player, boo boo kisser, nose wiper, bath giver, back patter, diaper changer, and our very own munchie chauffer...  this man does it all!  He’s the perfect example of an involved daddy and we are all so very lucky to have him.   

I know you’re reading, and I want you to know that I love you very much, Babe!  Happy Father’s Day.  XO
