{Weekend Recap} Father's Day Weekend

Happy Tuesday, ladies! This weekend flew by but so do most weekends when you're having fun! 

Friday Kevin had to work so after taking Harper to daycare, I ventured back to Greensboro to do a little shopping by myself. I left with the intention of picking up things for a Father's Day cookout but somewhere along the thirty minute drive, I decided I'd spend the afternoon shopping for other things as well. While out and about, I swung by a few home stores in search of the final items I needed for our patio makeover. Lucky for me, I was able to wrap up all the final items I needed thanks to a visit to the Home Store, Pier One, Target, and Hobby Lobby. With the exception of our fire table, the patio is complete. I'll have a full reveal later this week (: If you didn't catch the sneak peek on my instagram account, here you go.

Saturday morning all of the members here in the Holt household slept in and it was glorious! After whipping up some bacon, eggs, and toast, we headed to the pool where we spent most of the morning. 

Around 1, we called it a day and headed back to the house for a quick lunch and naps. Usually when Harper naps, Kevin and I take the opportunity to use that time to accomplish things around the house but not this day. I'm not sure if it was the sun or the water, but we were both drained and so as soon as Harper took a nap, so did we! Might I add, we didn't get up until about four hours later... 

Our Saturday evening was spent celebrating our niece's fifth birthday. Kevin's cousin (who his parents practically raised, hence how it's our niece) and his wife hosted Samantha's party at their home. Of course, like most little girls parties these days, it was Frozen themed! 

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the birthday girl so I tossed in a photo of Harper and Samantha from a few weekends ago (; 

Saturday night after everyone was in bed, I stayed up wrapping Father's Day presents. I was so excited about this year's presents that I felt like a kid at Christmas waiting for morning to arrive. 

Needless to say, when the alarm went off, I was rushing Kevin downstairs so Harper could give him his present. This year I purchased Kevin a few new workout clothes (which he discovered a few weeks ago hiding in the back of my car) and a new fitbit so he could compete with the rest of our friends and family. Thankfully, he loved his gift. Now as to what to get him for his upcoming birthday. Any ideas ladies?

After opening gifts, we got ready and headed to church. It was the first time in forever we've attended church as a family and it felt wonderful to have Kevin by my side. Following church, we grabbed lunch at a local Mexican restaurant with my sister and her family. Typically we do lunch at the parents' but due to some Father's Day festivities going on, my mom didn't have time to cook. 
After lunch, Kevin and Harper headed to the pool while I cleaned up the house in preparation for a Father's Day cookout. Around 6:30, our parents, siblings, and Kevin's grandparents joined us for a barbecue dinner honoring four of the greatest men I've ever known. 

When dinner was over, the guys opened up their Father's Day presents. Harper gave my dad and Kevin's dad, this book which happens to be on super sale right now. It's super cute and if you haven't read it, you need to. They make it for both grandpas and grandmas. It was the perfect gift for those dads who have everything (;

Hope your weekends were just as exciting!
