Fathers Day Weekend

So Friday we got the kids early because their mom was going out of town. Initially Dave was going to get them and then go workout but I decided to go get them for him. I wish I had not done that, the worst storm I have ever experienced hit while I was driving to get them. I called dad because surely there was a tornado 2 feet from my car and I was shaking. Ok so no tornado but holy cow the wind was INSANE! Needless to say I am pretty sure that takes the cake for scariest moment in my life.
 When I finally got home an hour and a half after leaving work, I took Teddy for a walk and there were limbs everywhere AND the umbrella was in the lake.
Alayna got to play with the dolls my Aunt Theresa and Grammy got her for her birthday!
We had dinner then we all went to bed after baths! My nerves were shot and unfortunately I still didn't sleep very well.

Saturday started with an early workout then trip to the grocery store, then I went to the baby shower. When I got home we decided to all go for a bike ride which was really fun. Although I should not have worn my capri sweat pants because holy sweat batman. It is getting very hot and I almost don't even want to go outside now. Even the pool yesterday was too hot!


 We spotted Mr. Alligator on our way, this time he was next to our side, normally he is across the pond. We got back and played in the pool for a little bit, cooked dinner, baths then bed!
 Sunday was Fathers day! I took Teddy for a long walk that morning, meal prepped some, everyone got ready and we headed to church. They had a fun photobooth set up so of course we had to take silly pictures. I hate the lighting on Alayna's face, you can't even see her smile!



 Family pictures! A friend at church was kind enough to take one with me in it.

We went home, had lunch, hung out for awhile then headed down to JI to hang with the family.

 We played cornhole, hung out back chatting, Logan and Alayna played, we all ate yummy burgers for dinner followed by cookie cake *yum* then headed home.

Aunt Theresa brought them back goodies from Yellowstone which for Logan included a whistle, binoculars and a park ranger badge. To say he was excited would be an understatement, he loved all of his gifts.



We had a great fathers day!! I got the most epic selfie with my daddy too and it will be going in a frame once we get the house and I have more room for more frames. I was so glad to get to spend time with my dad and the rest of the family. As you get older it becomes more and more obvious your family is everything and life is short so enjoy every moment with them that you can!


Baby shower-book themed

This past Saturday one of my best friends had her baby shower for her little boy that will be here sometime at the end of July or early August. I am sure Ashley is hoping for July, I couldn't imagine being pregnant in this heat, ay ay ay!!

Her sister and sister in law threw the shower for her and they did such a great job with all the food and d├ęcor. They had a childrens book theme and it was absolutely adorable.

This cake was amazing, three layers and all three different flavors.


I am so glad I get to be apart of big life events for my friends and I can't wait to meet Mr. Isaac!

Last weekend

Only a full weekend behind, no biggie! This week I will finally be caught up with my blogging. First world problems, right?

Last weekend we didn't have the kids and luckily no big plans. Thursday night Dave started to have some pretty bad pain in his lower back and of course I go right to a pulled muscle but he was thinking kidney stone. Friday morning the pain is still there and a 10 at times so I told him to go to medical. He went they weren't 100% sure so they sent him to the ER for further examination. We got there, went right back then they started an IV and drew blood, well the girl who did this was a student and this was only her third time ever doing an IV. I am not entirely sure what happened but next thing I know she says woops and there's blood all over his arm and on the bed. ay ay ay!
We were there a good 2 hours and they finally said muscle spasm. Luckily he just needed to chill at home and take some meds and would be good to go.  
We did some shopping on Saturday then headed to JI to hang with the fam. Sunday we went to church, hung out at home, went to see the girls dance recitals and then dinner with the fam!

 Superheroes at church!!

 Isabelle is 2nd from the right and Lola is on the bottom furthest to the right!

 Selfies waiting for our table at Outback!

 After dinner Dave and I decided to drive by the lot where our house will be and there was slight progress. To our knowledge we have permits but just waiting to see when the next step begins! We are so ready for this house but being patient. We looked at other homes available in our price range and they simply suck, so being patient to get a house we absolutely love is what we must do. Plus moving further out of the summer is ideal because moving in July/August sucks, trust me, been there done that bought the t-shirt.

Our house will be right next to this house.

Yesterday was fathers day and we had a lot of fun celebrating!! I will  blog on that one this week!!
