Saturday morning will find me happily sorting and washing laundry from the trip, because sadly that does indeed make me happy. As much as I enjoy going, I enjoy being back home even more. Saturday afternoon my sisters and I are taking our father out to an early dinner for Father's Day. He has recently returned to the nursing home for an undetermined amount of time, and we thought it would be nice to surprise him and break him out for a bit! After dinner, we are planning on attending late Mass before heading home for the night.
Sunday is Father's Day! I plan on having Steve sleep late and have the kids help me prepare a favorite breakfast of his...Blueberry pancakes with sausage and fruit. Then we travel to the final soccer game of the season. Hoping for a Father's Day win! Steve would like to cook on the grill for dinner, but I don't want him to do too much, so I am thinking a pork loin with baked potatoes and broccoli and cheese.
Well, that is what's up here this weekend. I hope yours is happy and sunny and restful, whatever your plans may be!
Happy Father's Day!
Warm summer weather means lighter dinners...this is one of our favorites...fish, white rice, and these green beans from my bloggy friend Tricia. They are delicious!
Summer also means there is always a big bowl of this in the refrigerator!
My oldest and my youngest! : )
Homemade cinnamon rolls made a perfect Saturday night snack.
My lilacs finally bloomed! The smell reminds me of my mom's so many years ago...
Happy Father's Day to the man who has held our children's hands for all these years. I love you!
