Father's Day

Please excuse my tardiness in wishing all of the dads out there a Happy Father's Day.  My family spent much of our beautiful weekend outside celebrating our family, so I wasn't near a computer to share blessings with you timely.  My gratitude to all fathers out there, is no less heart felt in my belated thanks for all you do every day.
Here's a look at some of the things we did together to celebrate and the signs that were part our fun:
We started our weekend off right away on Friday evening.  Instead of returning home from daycare, we detoured to have a picnic and play at a local park.  After that, we attended a city ice-cream social where we ate some treats, listened to some music, and got to check out a couple fire trucks and see how the fire hoses/hydrants work! (WATER, ICE CREAM, MUSIC, DOG)
We spent one morning at the local zoo.  We go to the zoo pretty frequently because it's something we all enjoy.  I especially like the fact that the experience, while familiar, is different each and every time. 

During this visit, Mr. L. came nose to nose with a snow leopard (through glass, of course!), we saw lots of sun-bathing animals, visited the petting zoo, and even climbed a pirate ship. (CAT, BUTTERFLY, TRAIN, GOAT, BIRD)

On Sunday, we went to church then visited Grandpa for lunch.  After a nap in the car, we went for a walk in the woods.  After that we went home for a spaghetti dinner and a chance to unwind from our busy weekend!  

What fun things did you do to take advantage of the beautiful weather last weekend?

    1. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back and visit again.

  2. Wow what a super fun-filled day! My boys would have loved that fire truck! Thanks for joining in with #fbfriday

    1. It was a great family weekend! We attended the same event this year, but it rained so it was moved indoors. My oldest was definitely disappointed he didn't get to explore the fire trucks again. Thanks for stopping by!
