Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all of the dads/dads-to-be and hopeful dads out there! While our Father's Day was maybe not a traditional celebration, we enjoyed it nonetheless.

We had mulch delivered on Saturday & unfortunately before we had a chance to finish spreading it, we got caught in the middle of a downpour. Brian was adamant about getting it done over the weekend, so by default ended up doing it Sunday morning, instead of relaxing since it was Father's Day. Oh's done and it looks great!

Nana & PopPop were visiting for the weekend, and we were joined late morning by GG & Pappy. The men headed out to see the Pirates game in the afternoon (and they actually won the game, shocker) while the women hung out at home with Jake. We all enjoyed a nice dinner together when the men returned from the game and I think it's safe to say that everyone enjoyed their Father's Day.

I think it's easy sometimes to focus on the annoyances (putting his socks beside in the hamper instead of IN it, for example...why is this so difficult??) but Father's Day is always a good reminder that I should be grateful for what I have, and that's a wonderful husband and the best daddy to our son. I know he's been extremely stressed out lately between trying to get our house ready to sell and studying for an upcoming licensing test for work that's really important, and I don't always help matters by getting snippy over little things and turning up my level of sarcasm when I'm frustrated. We are both so alike in that we get frustrated easily, snap at each other, then just need a few moments to cool off...but after that has passed, we always know that we still have what matters the most to us, and that's each other and our families. (aww, that was kind of a Hallmark moment.)

Here's a little photo tribute to all of the dads in my life...thank you for everything you do for us!
