Father's Day Weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful and joy-filled Father's Day. Ours was just a little different this year. My parents are out of town, visiting my grandparents, so we didn't get together for our usual BIG Father's Day dinner. That dinner will happen next weekend at my sisters house where we will all be together to celebrate.

As for this weekend---
Well...in honor of Father's Day, Shane took Corban and Riley on their first ever real camping trip.

They went with our friends, Reggie and his little guy, Rhett, for a night filled with nothin' but some manly adventures;)!!

They roasted hot dogs, made smores, went hiking, met a corn snake, slept in a cabin, and came home dirty--yes...very, very, dirty!!!

Oh...they had such a GREAT time!!!

On Sunday, before heading out the door for church, the kids helped me make Shane's favorite breakfast---

---blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs.

The kids also presented Shane with a few sweet homemade gifts, which they made for him during the week.

After church, we headed home for a rather quiet afternoon. The babies napped, and we worked on a few projects around the house. For dinner, we let Shane pick out what he would like to have. Of course, he chose steak and baked potato's!


After dinner, we were off to the pool to enjoy an evening swim.


The kids had so much fun hanging out (and ON) their daddy at the pool.

We've been spending LOTS of time at the pool lately, and seriously, my kids are turning into little fish!
They LOVE to swim!!!

And with that...Father's Day weekend came to an end! It was simple, but oh so sweet!
My kids are truly blessed to have such a fun, loving, godly man to call their Daddy!
Happy Father's Day, Shane!!!

We, too, are so thankful for pool access. Seems to be the only thing to be able to do in this heat...and it wears kids out!
