Perfect Weather & Father’s Day 2016


I hope you all had a lovely weekend with family & friends. Ours was filled with outdoor fun and of course time with family.

Friday was a rather easy day for me work wise since I had to cut back on work a bit. If you missed part of that update click here.

I have 2 more days until I’m full term and I really can’t wait to make it to that date!! It’s been quite challenging for me to “take it easy” and “not workout.” I’m usually Go-G0-Go so it was a completely different change of pace.

I used the time to hang out with Ava and enjoy the perfect weather we have had these past few days. On Friday after work I took Ava to the playground for a playdate with my friend’s kids.


They had a blast running around and Ava was completely wiped after.

In the afternoon we played outside with Cooper and enjoyed Cooper’s pool. This was his pool when he was a puppy but Ava loves it and so does he!


As you can see there’s barely any water left because Ava kept splashing it out and filling up buckets for Cooper to drink.


I’m pretty sure Cooper peed about 30 times after our little outdoor play time.

Saturday morning we got up bright and early to run some errands and get out day started. We were at the beach around 10am. The skies were clear and the temperature was perfect… 75 degrees!


Ava was so much fun at the beach. She splashed in the water, played with her sand toys and even let me sit in the beach chair for some relaxation time.


I’m pretty sure that never happens.


We took a long walk down the beach and headed home for a late lunch and some quiet time around the house before I headed to my hair appointment.


The rest of the night was spent at the house eating dinner, taking Cooper out to the park and relaxing. It was great.

Sunday was Father’s Day and I tried my best to make it special for Marc. We made breakfast together and again I ran some errands with Ava to let Marc have some time to do projects that he wanted to work on. We got lunch together and then after Ava’s nap we headed to my parents house for an early dinner.

Ava played with her Cousin Emily and we spent time outside watching them play in the sandbox and pretend to hit golf balls. I love seeing Ava with her cousin and reminds me how important family is.

As we drove home in the car I realized I didn’t take any pictures and I said to Marc I was bummed we didn’t take a picture of the 3 of us and I didn’t take one of him with Ava. I was upset at first because it’s nice to look back at pictures from important occasions like these, but then I also realized that it’s important to live in the moment and make memories. I have TONS of pictures of Marc with Ava and for this particular day I had more fun watching Marc chase Ava as she tried to run through the yards in my parents neighborhood and watch Ava laugh with her cousin Emily for 10 minutes straight. I won’t forget those two things even if they weren’t caught on camera!!

How was your father’s day weekend?

Do you ever wish you had taken pictures of a special occasion but you didn’t?
