Father’s Day!

We had a wonderful Father’s Day with Jim on Sunday! We started our day off with church and coffee, spent our afternoon working around the house and taking naps, and finished the day with a trip to his very favorite restaurant(again) and a stop at the “man store”.


I had to be sure to get a quick picture of these girls and their sweet Daddy before we left for church! So far, this summer has been the summer of grunge(working on projects around the house constantly will do that to ya) so a rare opportunity where everyone was put together and looking lovely had to be documented!

And just LOOK at these babies on Father’s Day last year!

Apparently my “D” and “A” letters have gone missing since our move in December. I have no idea where they ended up…..so this years updated “D-A-D” pictures are going to be a little delayed due to my poor planning(what’s new!)

Last year we celebrated Father’s Day at Cheddars.

This year we celebrated Father’s Day at Cheddars.
What can I say, he’s a guy who knows exactly what he likes!
The man worked at Cheddars all through college and still can’t get enough of the stuff. That says something, I think.
After dinner, he decided it wouldn’t be a true Father’s Day without a stop to Lowe’s. We bought garden hoses and light bulbs. Exciting stuff.
But most exciting, Mabel got to ride the tractors for the very first time like big sister and someone was OBSESSED.

After our trip to the man store, Jim decided to treat us all to a little ice cream before we called it a night!

Baskin Robbins heard!

All in all it was a great day celebrating the most wonderful Daddy ever. He takes care of us so well, he loves us so deeply, he knows us each well enough to make every single girl in his house feel cherished and special. That is no small feat and he takes it on boldly. We’re so thankful for him.
