What started out as our annual Father’s Day photo gift showing how much we love Daddy, which is just shocking when you compare it to years past (who are these children and when did they get so darn big??) turned into a fabulous family-filled Father’s Day weekend with cousins and memories galore. I hope our very favorite Daddy of all enjoyed his celebration!
They spent days at the pool and evenings laughing and riding bikes in the driveway with cousins, and with all five of them at Nana and Papa’s house, it was a bustling, funny weekend to remember. Who brought the Nerf guns??
I tried desperately to get all five of them to take a decent photo together. But when you are nearly 8, nearly 7, just six, almost 4 and just 3, following directions can be a bore. A for effort, though, my loves!
I could show you the two photos I took at the Quechee Hot Air Balloon Festival, before all hell broke loose and we left with two girls absolutely losing their minds and crying their eyes out over sand art and lemonade, but that wouldn’t be the real story. The real story is that Jason and I high-tailed it out of there as quickly as our exhausted children could follow, crashing from late evening fun with family and long days in the sun. This wasn’t the year for portraits, but these kids sure do love each other, as we love the best Daddy in the world, JDubbs.
We’ll just keep those memories in our mental memory boxes this year, shall we?
