Father's Day Weekend

We actually had a relaxing Father's Day weekend! We didn't have any plans, and Dylan didn't have a baseball game. It was so nice not to HAVE to do anything!

We did leave the house briefly on Saturday, but most of the day was spent in our backyard. Grant wanted to work on a project outside, and the kids were more than happy to help. They pitched in, and before long, the hillside was cleared and Grant had a nice wood pile for a fire.

Of course, once the project was completed, it morphed into a critter catch.

Grant found this cool moth, right out of the cocoon! It was huge!

Dylan was interested in finding something a bit more creepy.

Grant found just what he was looking for!

After a long afternoon of hard work, we were all tired. We ended up spending a relaxing evening at home. For once, we were able to eat dinner when we were ready, and relax on the couch instead of running around! We definitely took advantage of our rare quiet day!

Grant had a good Father's Day! He got to sleep in, the kids spoiled him with gummy candy and pictures that they drew for him, I made him brunch, and then he got to relax at home for the afternoon.

I didn't get to see my dad, but I think he was too busy enjoying his new Kindle from all of us! We stopped by Grant's parent's house for a bit to give Grant's dad his present.

Grant ended his day by having a big fire with the kids, his brother, and his friend. It was Grant's first fire of the summer, and he's looking forward to more!

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful dad and to the wonderful father of my 2.9 amazing kids! I love you both so much!

  11. Totally jealous that your weekend was so relaxing!

    That moth was COOL! And I am freaking out about the snake for you vicariously... I mean, obviously, you're a little less freaked out than I am, considering that you have a MEGA one in your house, ha ha!
