Hello! How was your week? We’ve had a great one. I worked two days, we had some pool time, the kids had dance, baseball, and swim team, and I was able to run some errands and cross some things off my “to do” list.
My dad visited for a few days which is always a favorite. He was able to hang with us and my brother’s family, see two of Hayden’s tournament games, take Hayden to the driving range, and we went ahead and celebrated Father’s Day.
For years, we’ve taken a front porch stairs photo (per the Major’s request!), and we always laugh because he’s the hardest one to get to smile. He always says, “I AM smiling!” This visit, he wanted the kids to “smile like Major,” and they nailed it.
Of course, I needed a smiling photo, and then my brother and I hopped in for one.
Seeing Hayden play baseball is always a favorite. He’s having so much fun with his summer team. They are a great group of boys with great coaches.
My favorite flowers, hydrangeas, are starting to bloom…
…but they are showing off at my brother’s house.
My sister-in-law made a couple of pies last weekend, and Layla couldn’t wait to dig in. The pies were delish.
Homer is always a favorite. He loves it that we are home so much in the summer.
Summer nights and just hanging around are a favorite of Hadley’s. My kids kids love to climb this tree in our yard.
Pool time with Layla was another favorite of Hadley’s this week.
Snow cones at the pool are a great way to beat the heat!
Hayden wanted to go to a new restaurant in town, so we ate there on Wednesday after baseball practice. Freddy’s with my fave…
Favorite Mom Meme:
Yep. Summer always magnifies what little control I have around here. 😆
Bonus Fave: Flashback Friday
Since it’s Father’s Day this weekend, I’m sharing these favorite flashback photos!
In 2013, I had the kids take these pics and framed them for Travis.
And, another flashback…the Major and me in the 80’s…
and in 2005… (Travis and I will celebrate 16 years of marriage next week…which I can’t believe!)
Living away from family can be hard. Luckily, my mom and grandma visited around Mother’s Day, and then we were able to celebrate my dad this past weekend for an early Father’s Day.
What are some of your favorites for the week? I hope you have a great weekend. We’ll be at a baseball tournament and celebrating Travis on Sunday!
Amazon Prime Days are Monday and Tuesday, so I will be sharing some Amazon faves on Monday!
Thanks so much for reading.
