Father's Day Celebrations & A Ruffle Dress


Last weekend we celebrated Logan's accomplishments as a father.  Logan is without a doubt what one would consider a "super" dad.  He always has time to play with the girls and has really embraced having daughters, to the point of doing their hair for them before school. He is goofy, patient, and always shows them love and kindness.  Needless to say the girls adore him.

 

As far as purchased gifts go we don't do them.  We always do a homemade gift that goes into a special book and we spend the day together.




 

On Saturday evening Halie was at a friends house so we decided to take Anya on a special date night.  We got all dressed up and hit the town.   Anya choose to wear her little mint dress from the Children's Place, along with her denim jacket to match mine .




I am still on my "no shopping/wearing my closet streak" so out came this adorable dress that was passed down to me by my wonderful sister.  I love how the bright colors blend together, almost like a watercolor painting.  Ruffles are such a lovely feminine touch and I am so glad they are back.  Since this dress is a couple of years old I am linking this ruffled, wrap dress that I am absolutely crushing on revolve.com.




We went to a new restaurant by the river and were informed that kids weren't allowed after 7 p.m. (insert head shake).  After being slightly annoyed,  we opted out for a favorite local Mexican restaurant where lots of giggles, good food and drinks were had.

On Sunday, we all decided to go for a picnic down by the river and enjoy the sunny day.  We even took our Bocce ball set to have a couple of rounds.


Anya is a sore loser.

Just watching her makes my back ache.


We finished the day off with having dinner with my mom and dad (no picture).

 

One more week of work for me and then summer holidays!

 

 Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks girl. Anya is just a feisty little one. One minute she loves you, is your best friend, next minute she is stomping around the house wanting nothing to do with you. Hmm. Puberty will be interesting.
