Fatherly Friday Favorites

How’s that for some alliteration this morning?  It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but there’s always so much to be thankful for so I’m excited to be back to sharing.  Here’s my recent favorites:

1. Swim Lessons

Our 4 year old son A just completed his first round of swim lessons.  He loves the water so much and it was awesome to see him stretch become even more comfortable and gain a few skills.  A cannot wait to take his next round of lessons.  He’s the one in the middle of the picture, swimming to catch a ducky.

2. Lucky
 As I mentioned we recently added a dog to our family.  It’s actually been over a month but life has been so crazy I’ve not had time to blog about it too much.  Meet Lucky!  He is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle mix.  Lucky has a wonderful temperament and the boys are over the moon about him.  We could not be happier!dogdog with a balldog in a yard

3. Yard Sales

We hit some great yard sales last week and scored some fun treasures for the boys.  And a big $2 mirror for me.  We had to come home because the car was full.  Yes, the kids are in there.  They loved that the crocodile teeter totter rode between them.  With a good washing that croc was ready to go!

4. Cooking

For whatever reason I cannot get enough to eat lately.  I feel like I’m constantly eating which has made me constantly cook lately.  We’ve had a few good new recipes lately.

I’ll be sharing this peach crumble recipe soon!

5. The Fathers in My Life

I’m extremely thankful for my father, my father-in-law, and my husband.  I don’t know what I would do without them or what our sons would do without them.

Have a wonderful weekend and go hug your dad or give him a call if you can.  I don’t have many male readers, but if you are a dad, happy Father’s Day to you!

Lucky is TOO cute! That is actually the kind of dog I have been looking at. But in like, five years. And I'm with you. I am so excited for garage sale season!!

Every dog is an individual, but Lucky seems to have all the wonderful characteristics of his breeds. I highly recommend them!
