Father’s Day

Every summer I get the idea that I’m going to have all of this time to relax, and enjoy the nice weather, and be very serene and peaceful. And every single summer I’m surprised at the alarming amount of activity that I need to engage in, none of which involves laying in my hammock chairs reading a book.

Luckily for us, Evan and I are usually ‘good busy’- last weekend we went to our first college reunion, which was awesome, and next weekend will be a whirlwind of visiting with our niece. This past weekend was a similarly frantic few days, but I was so happy to be able to spend some time with my dad and Grandpa.

My grandparents were a little amused by their first selfie.

I also finally met my brother’s girlfriend, who was darling, and her puppy. Howie was pleased to find his new bestie 🙂

It’s hard, sometimes, to make the drive up to see my family. Every time I do, though, I feel like I get the gift of time and relaxation- I can’t feel guilty for not checking things off my list when I’m not at home, right? That’s so restorative. Did anyone else do anything refreshing this weekend?
