Weekend Goodness

Fathers Day started out with breakfast in bed.
I made a German french toast the night before.
so it was an easy quick fix for us that was ready to stick in
the oven when we got up yesterday morning.

the kids brought it up to Jode in bed who was still snoozing.
we had stayed up pretty late the night before and he had no
idea they had this up their sleeve’s.

it was the kids idea to get him beef jerky (his favorite)
but it’s so stinkin expensive to get it on a regular basis.
and some pistachio’s another one of his favorite’s.

there were homemade cards that told him of their love.
and I had gotten him a new shirt that he could wear to church.
  I love for him to feel good and look smokin’.

we went and ate with friends for lunch
and came back home to this dessert.

later we spent some time by the pool.

and I managed to get this one picture of him with the kids.
I would’ve liked more but it just didn’t happen.

I thought of my own dad too.
wish he was still here to call up and talk to.

this is one of my favorite all time pictures of us.

I think I always just wanted to hold onto him tightly.
never quite feeling like I could.

thankful as always for my Father in heaven who holds us.
hope you had a great Father’s Day too.
Happy Monday.
