A Fun Father's Day Weekend!

Chris is a fantastic Daddy. He is loving, patient, ecouraging, fun and he catches yummy fish! For Father's Day, the kiddos and I bought him a tube to pull behind the boat. It was a little scary for me at first- but a blast for everyone (including Mama) by the end!

We had perfect weather Friday evening for tubing- the wind was blowing from the South and it laid the waves down for a smooth first time tubing. Here are a few pictures of the trip.

Saturday morning, Chris went off-shore to fish (he caught a beautiful Lane Snapper- pinkish with bright yellow stripes! Yummy!). While he was fishing, the kiddos & I went blueberry picking. We set up an assembly line when we arrived back home- Timbo picked out the stems, Ben wiped them clean & Lauren sorted to be eaten fresh or frozen! Andrew just ate the blueberries. :)

On Father's Day, we enjoyed a relaxing day at home. Fresh-picked blueberries in the homemade pancakes for breakfast. Then we had an absolutely glorious church service- man, heaven is going to be so amazing. I can't wait to worship with all the saints! After church, we napped (the 2nd best gift a Dad can receive!) and then grilled out (in the rain). We tried Salmon on a cedar plank... yummy! I didn't take pictures of that, but the children had a blast playing in the drizzling rain while Chris grilled.


  1. what fun!! :) Tubing looks like fun, but I've never done it before. Boy you're brave, Miss Pregnant Mama!! (aka Allie-O!)

    I absolutely love that picture of Lauren & the blueberries - her eyes are so blue and she is so beautiful!! She definitely looks like her mama!!

    Thanks for sharing, and that's nice you had a great Father's Day. We had our grandparents over so that was nice.

    Hope you are doing well! :)

  2. Fun, fun! We went blueberry picking yesterday and after 2 1/2 hours of sweating we were 47 pounds of blueberries richer! And Caleb probably digested a pound as he picked! ;)


Thanks for dropping a note!
