Belated Father's Day Weekending

Happy Wednesday, y'all! I couldn't get my act together Sunday to author this blog post, so I'm bringing you a belated Father's Day weekending post. If you saw my Instagram Stories on Sunday night, you'll know that I was told by a snarky follower that I "take more naps then [sic] anyone I know," so apparently I was napping too hard to get this post written. ;) 

Anyway, onto our weekend! 


+ We got to surprise Brandon at the airport! The boys were so thrilled to get to pick him up in the baggage claim, and he loved having us there. 

+ We went straight from the airport to Knox's makeup swim lesson; he did so well last week and we're so proud of him for his progress! 

Knox's "Toy Story" towel is here 

+ And then we went straight home from swim lessons to meet my grandparents, who were driving home from Angel Fire, New Mexico, and stopped on their way to have lunch with us. It was such a special treat to get to see them! 

+ The boys had the time of their lives when a local police officer stopped by to see them while he was on patrol. He was so kind and let them sit in his lap in the car, call dispatch, sit in the back, etc. He was so patient and answered all of their questions. So precious! 

+ Then, we all suited up and went swimming! It was the perfect Friday evening. 

My swimsuit is old from Target (similar here), my sunglasses are here and my earrings are old from Nordstrom (similar here); Knox's rash guard is here and swimsuit is here


+ I have absolutely zero pictures from this day (blogger fail!). But, I went to get my hair cut and colored while Brandon took the boys to Bass Pro Shops. We had a slow afternoon/evening at home; I grilled these kebabs and corn on the cob and made a peach cobbler for dessert. The boys did more swimming and Brandon started "Big Little Lies" to catch up with me. 


+ We woke Brandon up with breakfast in bed and showered him with his gifts, then went to church and Sunday School, then let Brandon pick out our lunch spot: Wildwood. We enjoyed a delicious meal and came home right as a big storm hit our area. It was the perfect nap weather (since I take too many naps and all!) and so we all rested while it rained, then I made Brandon's favorite meal: The Pioneer Woman's Comfort Meatballs and her homemade mashed potatoes (with green beans). 

It was a great day celebrating our favorite guy!

  1. Looks like the best weekend even with our ridiculous crazy storm and nap on lady nap on!

  2. What a perfect weekend! How sweet of that police officer to take time out and give your guys a fun experience! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Don't you just love when law enforcement officers take the time to really talk with the littles? My kids had an encounter with the firemen on base the other day, and it made their whole weekend! It looks like you had a beautiful weekend, and yay for Knox doing so well swimming!

  4. Love that the officer stopped to talk with your kiddos. My niece is an officer and will turn on her lights and sirens for Bowen. I am totally jealous of the not fair! haha My 3yo has basically started not taking naps on weekends, unless we happen to be in the car later in the afternoon, so there is no break. We are going to start swim lessons in July and I am so excited!! Love your swimsuit and sunglasses :)

  5. Sounds like such a nice weekend! I'm sure it was such a great start to the weekend for all to surprise Brandon at the airport. Love that the officer stopped to talk with your little ones!
