Daddy’s Day

We took Luke out on Friday of Father’s Day weekend for some delicious hibachi!WP_20130614_011

The cutest Daddy with the cutest KidsWP_20130614_013

I gave Luke a slightly selfish gift for Father’s Day. On Saturday, we went to Dabney’s Nursery and picked out a few new plants and a yard of mulch! My flower beds had been driving me crazy, so we finally got them situated! I let Luke mow while I planted…and mulched…and he watched baseball…and I mulched…and he bathed the kids…and I mulched. The baby is as big as a grapefruit at 24 weeks!WP_20130615_004

Our front bedsWP_20130619_008WP_20130619_009

The purple wandering jew is the only thing we bought as far as plants for our beds. We went very minimally this year…low upkeep and they look great now!WP_20130619_010I am so proud of my hydrangea bush! We have been enjoying her beautiful blue, purple, and pink blooms! The hostas in front I got from a friend who was cleaning out her beds. They came back and really surprised me in the front and in the back.WP_20130619_012WP_20130619_011WP_20130619_014 This is my side bed with my pretty roses!WP_20130619_007

And now the back! We spend most of our time in the back, so these beds tend to looks better just because I am back there more to mess with them. WP_20130619_001WP_20130619_002 In the back, I have three sections: veggies/herbs, seeds, and planted blooms. These are all plants I let the kids pick out whenever we are grocery shopping. Double treat…they love it, and I love having color back there!

My veggies (tomatoes and peppers) and herbs (orange mint, lavender, and pineapple sage). Also, we have pumpkins where the broken pot pieces are laid out! WP_20130619_005 Saturated this area with seeds and they are already so big. Cant wait for some blooms!WP_20130619_006     On the morning of Father’s Day, I would love to say we served breakfast in bed like I got, but we just let him sleep in, showered him with gifts (a homemade ice cream maker!), and then let him cook us waffles. yum!    WP_20130616_012 WP_20130616_015 WP_20130616_018

KK got all the boys new grill mits! WP_20130616_024 When he is sleeping, he looks just like Blake!WP_20130616_025

So sad I didnt get a picture with my Dad! We enjoyed lunch together and then he had to go to work. Love you, JDiddy Pawpaw!

Grammy and PopPop came in town that night and I didnt get any pics! Thankfully, I know Grammy got lots!!! Grammy, send me your pics and I can update! We had a wonderful, relaxed week with them until Wednesday.

On Friday, Aunt Dee and Audrie came to visit. We love having family in our home to enjoy! We went swimming at KKs!WP_20130621_007 On Saturday, Papa Q and Ninabelle came for lunch for Father’s Day and Papa Q’s birthday!

WP_20130622_002 WP_20130622_006 Preston and Audrie enjoyed each other so much! I loved watching them interact.WP_20130622_012 WP_20130622_013 WP_20130622_018  WP_20130622_020 WP_20130622_019WP_20130622_022

After all the guests left, we started rearranging rooms! We are moving Kate and Preston into what was the guest room/Preston’s original nursery so we can put the new baby in Kate’s old room. WP_20130622_026 WP_20130622_027

The surprising thing about fatherhood was finding my inner mush. Now I want to share it with the world.  Christopher Meloni
