Father's Day Weekend

A weekend of eating, sweating, starting our basement paint project... and playing.

A small glimpse through pictures...


...a giant Father's Day cookie prepared at daycare by the hands of our pee-wee's... (they of course helped Daddy eat it).


...and a night of crockpot bbq chicken over penne pasta... SO good... Jaden devoured two bowls Friday night and two more bowls for lunch on Saturday!...



...a beginning to our basement paint project Saturday afternoon and then an interrupted trip to the park due to a rain shower. I felt so bad seeing Brandon's disappointment that we packed up the car and headed to Scratch... the word 'cupcake' makes this little boy so happy!





Jaden opted out of a cupcake for some gelato instead... (but then had no problem helping Brandon finish off his little cake, too of course.)



I absolutely love this little place on Main Street. My dad overheard some out-of-towners while we were there whispering about the cute little shop and asking each other if it was locally owned or a chain restaurant. Then they mentioned that a cupcake place in New York charges $7.00 per cupcake! Life's pretty good here in Cedar Falls... no complaints from me...



How cute is our Main St.? Super excited to spend our entire upcoming weekend downtown. It's Sturgis Falls week, baby!


...park try #2... it was HOT...




...so we came home and made these instead...

{peanut butter graham cracker balls... sinful...and completely devoured within an hour}



...a Sunday evening spent celebrating the dads. We all gathered at Cassi and James's house where Jaden spent the evening following James around, helping him grill and roping him into playing 'Tangled' on the Wii. Brandon spent his night performing goofy routines for us in the living room and loving up on the puppy. And... my parents surprised us with a family summer pass to The Falls. Can't wait to spend our evenings, weekends... and my vacation week swimming with my water babies and watching their skin bronze up!



...Just a brief recap... many more pictures to come this week!
