Father's Day 2015

We had quite the relaxing Father's Day, and that's exactly how it should be!  Just like last year, we decided to head out for brunch.  But now that we have a toddler who wakes around 7am, there was no possible way we could hold off until 11:30am, which is when Utah deems it okay to have morning cocktails.  So our brunch was sans adult beverages, but instead included pie!  We tried out a new to us breakfast spot that was famous for their pie.  Key lime pie after breakfast... yes please!
Next we hit the farmer's market for some fresh produce.  Our garden is flourishing, but I still like to hit the market for all the fresh fruit.  It's still early in the season, but the cherries we picked up were so scrumptious they felt like eating a bit of dessert.  The temps were hitting over 100 degrees, so we filled up the kiddie pool, turned on the jambox (as well as the US Open since it was Father's Day and all, & spent the afternoon splashing around.  Conor also picked up some squirt guns for he & Liam.  While I'm pretty against toy guns in general, the squirt guns were too irresistible on such a hot day!

The evening ended with a barbecue & popsicles!  I would call the day a win!  I think I brag on Conor enough on the blog, but he truly is a special man.  I knew the day I married him that I had a lifetime of happiness ahead of me!  While I always suspected he would be an incredible father, I never could have fathomed the dad that he has become to our boys.  He is completely hands on & a true partner with me in parenthood.  I wouldn't want to be on this journey with anyone but him.  And he has given me the greatest gifts of all in my two boys!!!


And if you are wondering where little Finn Ryan was, he pretty much slept the entire afternoon!  Apparently he decided that 3pm was a nice little bedtime.  I was pretty sad not to get a picture of all the boys, but not sad enough to wake him, ha!

Happy belated Father's Day to all the other incredible men out there.
My own father included.  I will be celebrating with him in less than a week!!!

  3. How fun! Yeah I think water guns get a pass on the whole toy gun thing, especially when it's that hot out ;). Isn't it funny when babies/kids decide to have marathon naps. Yesterday we wanted to do the pool in the afternoon. But then noah had a super long nap too!

  4. Such fun captures you got!!! I think few things speak to a woman's heart more than watching her husband so involved with her babies. Oh and yes to all the cherries!!!

  8. No cocktails til 11:30..?!?! I didn't realize that was the case, how strange. But I suppose, it's only been within the last few years that Colorado can now sell alcohol on Sundays.. Either way, sounds like a perfect weekend, Happy Father's Day to Conor!! :)
