Happy Monday, friends!
I hope you all had the best weekend and Father’s Day! We absolutely LOVED celebrating Ben yesterday. He is our rock and keeps this family strong. But more on that later. 🙂
Today I’m linking up with Biana for her Weekending linkup, so let’s get to it!
We put one of our properties up for sale on Friday, so we spent Friday and Saturday there touching up paint and various other little things. SOMEONE (I won’t mention any names…) thought it’d only be an hour or two, so we brought our kids but NOTHING to entertain them… They were troopers though, so, we took a lunch break at the park with pizza. I think that made up for them being bored out of their skulls for the rest of the day. haha!
Finally leaving….and it’s dinner time. Yep, more pizza. Guys, try to keep up with my parenting game, I dare ya.
At least this isn’t every day life, right? At least that’s what I kept telling myself to make myself feel better.
My parents have had these hilarious old scooters for at least 10 or more years. Our kids LOVE them. Especially Elsie. As in, she asks to ride it multiple times a day. My sweet dad has two of them, so he told us we could borrow one for the summer. Made my kids LIVES. And Ben has so much fun taking them on little rides and running errands. These babies top out at about 30 miles an hour, downhill, so we’re really living on the edge here.
And later that night…gotta get the work done! Being a “working mom” is no joke. And I only put that in quotations because my workload is not consistent. I mostly consider myself a stay-at-home mom, but I guess, I am technically a work at home mom, since I do accounting work and freelance writing. Gotta make those dreams come true somehow, and I’m a big believer of putting in the work to make your dreams a reality!
While I was working, it suddenly got really loud outside. Our city had their annual parade and carnival celebration that day (but we had to miss it due to getting our property fixed up), so we had kind of forgotten about the fireworks. Ben peeked outside and discovered we had a great view right from our back porch! A private firework show from the comfort of our backyard? Yes, please. It was so nice cuddling with Ben and remembering all the years we’ve spent watching fireworks together.
Father’s Day! We made Ben breakfast, went to church, and all took quick little naps before heading over to my parents for a BBQ. Els apparently couldn’t wait any longer to eat, so she helped herself to some little snacks.
It was a gorgeous night for a BBQ. Our kids had so much fun running around with their cousins and we all loved just being able to relax and hang out together.
I just love this man! He is so fun, hilarious, and loves us all fiercely. The kids made him sweet cards and drew pictures and couldn’t get enough of his tickles all day long. I love that he plays with the kids so much and they never have to question how important they are to him. He goes out of his way to teach them and make sure they know what GOOD kids they are. My kids definitely lucked out in the Dad department!
I hope all of you had great weekends and were able to spend it with the ones you love! This week is going to be a busy one for me, here’s hoping I have the energy to get through it! (I should probably just install a caffeine IV now to keep me going….) See you tomorrow!
