Happy Father's Day Weekend

Happy happy Monday ya'll!!!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and I hope everyone threw a little love and appreciation to that person they see as a father!!  I know not everyone has a fantastic father like me; but I hope you all have someone you respect and admire in that way. And special prayers to those that have lost their father; I am praying for your comfort.

Here are the two people that made me...I love them so much more than I can say!!!


And here they are when all four of us kids were little...


And here we all are in 2015 at their 50th anniversary dinner...


Since I spent the weekend with my father we had a little lake time too.

It was a dreary and rainy weekend but we were able to squeeze in a little tube time for the kids in between rain storms...

Here is Aly and Brody...


And Madelyn and Kyleigh...


Our fearless boat driver and my "little" brother Matt...


And I got a little selfie off the front of the boat with Aly...HA!


I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and prayers for a great week!!!!!!!

HUGS!

How was your weekend? Who do you think of when you hear the word Father? Ever eaten a real lychee?

  1. What a lovely photo of your parents and the family photos are nice too. Not sure if they are real lychees, but I have eaten and enjoyed many.

  10. It looks like you all had a great time at the lake! I haven't been tubing in years. What fun!
    Didn't celebrate Father's Day much here. My adopted dad has been gone for 25 years and my stepdad and Mom weren't back from Florida yet. Tim and I don't celebrate Father's (or Mother's) Day for each other since our philosophy is that he's not my father and I'm not his mother. We did take a drive east on Rt. 30 and had a nice time stopping at flea markets and antique shops.

    I don't think I've had a lychee, real or otherwise.

    1. The drive east sounds like an awesome trip - way better than buying gifts anyway!!! I love stopping in all the little shops and markets in small towns! It is such an adventure - how great that you enjoy that together!!! Tubing was great for the kids - I can't go anymore since my neck hurts for a week after! Getting old sucks! HA! Have a fantastic week Stacy!

  11. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Dads are great. I also honored my husband for Fathers Day. He took on the roll as a father to my daughter and adopter her when she was 10. I could not ask for a better father that I have or a better Father than my daughter has.
    Now I want to go tubing!!
