Father's Day Weekend

This weekend was such a good one, finally a couple of days to relax after all we've had going on the last few weeks.  We needed it!  The weather was perfect, no rain & lots of sunshine, the girls just love being outside every second lately so we take full advantage.


We got this bike trailer when Waverly was little & are so excited that Avalon is big enough to use it now, we put both girls in for the first time Saturday and rode around our neighborhood and to the park.  They both loved it, of course Avalon got tired & fussy, Waverly kept trying to feed her yogurt bites to keep her happy and when it wasn't working she said "Goodness gracious, sweetie girl, I just very can't take this anymore, you are stressing me out".  The things she says are my favorite.

We were so excited to celebrate Father's Day, we had donuts in bed, daddy went for a golfing trip while we stayed around & cleaned the house, and then went to my grandparents for a cookout.  I can't say enough about my husband, who is raising two little girls who are going to grow up adoring their daddy, just like I did.  It's still surreal to me that this is our life, that we are old enough to have two kids and that they are healthy, happy, and just so beautiful inside & out, which is undoubtedly a testament to the kind of father he is.  He is selfless, hard-working, and exactly the kind of man I hope my girls find one day.

Also, he's mastered an Elsa braid like a boss.  We just love him. 


Lastly, two things!  One, I finally took the plunge on Hanna Anderson jams (that the girls are wearing above) after hearing so many things, and let me just say that they are AMAZING!  Worth every bit of the money.  They are so soft and only have gotten better with each washing.  I know they will last which makes the biggest difference when it comes to kids clothes.

And most importantly, has anyone used the online grocery store ordering service?  I ordered groceries on my computer while the girls played yesterday, they called me a few hours later to let me know that they were ready, so we literally pulled in & someone brought out our bags and even put them in the car for me.  I didn't even get out of my car.  It was amazing and quite possibly the best thing that happened to moms in the history of ever.

Hope you had the best weekend!

  3. YES to Hanna Andersson jams! I swear Seth thinks I'm crazy for spending so much money (though I do always look for a sale) but they are seriously the BEST jammies I've ever gotten for Mason. Hands down.

    Those jams are perfection.

    The first picture of Wave is possibly my all time favorite of her. So so sweet.
