Father's Day Weekend

What a beautiful weekend for Father's Day.
After several days of nasty afternoon and evening thunderstorms, this weekend turned out to be totally gorgeous.

Saturday we joined Keith and LuLu on their boat for a day on Lake Wylie.
Shelby is turning into a little fish.
Just runs and jumps in, no big deal.
 We keep a life jacket on her when boating and in the lake but a Puddle Jumper when at the pool.
 We were moving pretty slow this morning after a full day on the water, then hanging aftewards for dinner with LuLu, Keith and our other neighbors Bryan and Shannan.

We did manage to get out and meet some other friends for lunch at Mac's Speed Shop though.
Perfect spot for a Father's Day lunch.
 Getting a good picture isn't the easiest thing in the world these days.
 After more time playing in the water at our neighborhood pool we came back and got ready for dinner and a visit with Poppi.
He and my Mom are in town this week to visit with us, family coming in from Seattle, and help us.
I have a crazy busy week at work and have to work late several nights.
Shelby is an expert at helping people read their cards.
Especially, Father's Day cards.
 We made steak tacos for dinner, using this recipe.
It calls for fish, but it's delicious with steak too.
Super easy too!
 It was a great day, even though this is a terrible picture of me.
(hot and sweaty from being at the pool and Shelby bumped her head, hence, the bruise.)
 Here's to two great Dads.
Mine and Shelby's Daddy.
I couldn't ask for a better husband or father to our child.

So jealous of your time on the boat with your friends...looks so fun! And I'm seriously so excited to meet Miss Shelby. That girl is growing so quickly. Hope Brad enjoyed his day. That's such a sweet photo of the two of them. :)

Happy Fathers Day to Brad!!

Love that Shelby is growing up on the water! And yes- always a life jacket in and around lakes. She looks so cute in hers too!

Checked out that taco recipe and I will definitely be using it! Thanks so much for sharing :) I've been wanting to make fish tacos for awhile now, but never even thought to look for a recipe.

Daddy/Daughter relationships are so special! Love Shelby's smocked bubble. And, her cute little life jacket. I just got one for Lyla to keep at my parents' house for the pool. Tried it on her at Costco, and she wouldn't take it off. Haha.
