This past weekend was spent in the south at my cousins’ house and then way north at my in-laws’ house for a Father’s Day celebration. This involved a lot of time in the car, so you know what that means–Starbucks pit stops along the way. I grabbed an iced latte both days for a cool treat to sip on as the miles flew by.
On Saturday morning, I hit the gym for a strength training session before heading down to spend the day with two of my favorite girls–my cousins! Upon arriving, it was storming outside so we played a game and painted our nails while we waited for it to pass. It was fun to catch up with them since it had been awhile since we had hung out last!
Once the rain cleared, we headed into town for some froyo! We visit this little yogurt shop nearly every time that I visit them and it’s always fun to try new flavors and toppings. I chose pink lemonade and orange sorbet and it was super refreshing!
By the time that we got back to their house, it had cleared off into a beautiful summer day! We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the sunshine and each other’s company. The girls even took me for a ride on their dune buggy, which was a little scary at times but so fun! Marissa actually just passed her driver’s ed class and I’m so proud of her!
They also have a mini trampoline and so we took advantage of that for awhile. Karlie and I clearly collaborated on our neon pink clothing choices for the day as well! Immediately upon arriving home later that night, I informed Andy that we need a trampoline, stat! I forgot how much fun those things are!
After awhile, we headed back inside to cool down, color, and eat dinner together. Shortly after, I headed out since I still needed to swing by the grocery store but it was such a fun day spent with my cousins and I’m already looking forward to going back this summer!
The next day, Andy and I headed up to his parents’ house to spend the afternoon with his family. On the way there, we swung by one of our favorite places, Barnes & Noble to browse and grab a coffee for the road.

We enjoyed lunch together and played with little Greyden, who really isn’t so little anymore! He has grown up so much since I last saw him and it was fun to interact with him now that he is moving around like crazy! It seems like just yesterday that he was an itty bitty baby boy!
It was such a fun weekend spent with family–even if they live on opposite ends of the cities!
How often do you see your family?
What did you do for Father’s Day?
