Archives for posts with tag: father’s day

I find that weekends go by too fast. I know everyone says this, but I have realized how quickly they go since having Jackson and Jason has to head back to work on Mondays! I love being home with Jack, but I love our family time even more. He lights up around his Daddy, it is a wonderful thing to see.

That being said, this weekend was great! We had so much fun at the Father’s Day party at Gymboree on Saturday. Just the 3 of us. Yesterday we celebrated Father’s Day with Jason’s parents, my dad, my brothers Dan and Matt, and Dan’s girlfriend Melissa. It was a great visit and a great day. Jack was a little grumpy here and there, but I think he was overwhelmed with all of the people watching him and cooing over him. He is very used to just momma/jack time and then momma/dada/jack time. But I think Daddy and the Grandpa’s had a good day!

Jason's Dad, Jason, Jack, my Dad!

We spent about an hour and a half tubing on the lake. My mother in law happily stayed back with Jackson and spend some Nana/Jack time together. She was thrilled! I made some massive burgers for us, so after we grilled those, some brats, and mini burgers. One of Jason’s Father’s Day gifts was a contraption for mini burgers.

Found this at World Market

He was sooo happy with it. He loves loves loves mini burgers. It was a pretty fun contraption to use.

He didn’t even eat one of my massive burgers. Just the brats and his baby burgers. BUT I think my big guys were rather tasty. It was just a super fun family day. An all in all perfect Father’s Day. Throwing parties gets easier each time and each month Jack grows. I have hosted several things since he was born it was very stressful in the beginning. But this time, I had a lot of fun putting it all together. I forgot to make a side for food besides fruit salad. I wanted to get a potato salad or something, but it slipped my mind. Next time I wont forget.

129.4 lbs!!!!

On a different note, I have a bit more good news. I dropped a bit more weight. Nothing insane. I am at 129.4lbs.

So I lost some ounces. Even ounces are exciting these days. Jason actually asked me on Saturday to not lose any more weight. He thinks I look great now and that I was a bit too skinny before. I told him, that is unlikely. I should get back to what I was before this baby. He then said, “don’t go overboard.” He also called me an “exercise addict” yesterday. He swears it isn’t a bad thing lol.  I had to take some photos for something I am doing. Which, I will likely write about at the end of it. But, I thought I would post one here to show my progress as well. Yesterday I did not do a fixed workout, but I was running around all day getting things ready, cleaning up, etc. I also went tubing. Which is quite the upper body and core workout! I am going to try to go running tonight, if these storms are gone. If they aren’t, then maybe I will just do some pilates when Jason gets home.  I don’t think it is an addiction really. I consider myself very dedicated to working out. It has to become a dedication in your life if you want to set long-term fitness goals. If you want to be a runner you have to run regularly. Bottom line!

My last little thought….my throat is really scratchy from all the lake water I swallowed when being thrown from the tube, because I was thrown, or whipped off several times! haha My brother Dan and I went on together and even he commented, my legs would just fly out from behind me and then take the rest of my body with them! I even skipped across the water like a rock….But it was a BLAST!

What did you and your family do for Father’s Day? Anything fun? Did you relax and take it easy? Any other tubers out there???

I skipped running yesterday. I was just so exhausted. I think Jackson is going through that 4 month wakefulness that can occur. Where babies who previously slept through the night begin to wake again. Except, Jackson has never consistently slept through the night. So this means he is up nearly ALL night again! UGH So I gave myself a cardio break yesterday. I did some ab work and glute work though.

I went for a run this morning. I have concluded that I have to go for runs at night from now on. It is too muggy in the mornings right now. Last weekend the same thing happened. I couldnt breathe then or today! I even took an allergy med this morning before I went but it was no match for my asthma and them mugginess. So my 5k run on the 4th should be interesting. I no longer expect myself to do my best time, if it is this muggy out then. Maybe we will have a dry heat….haha! I am so drenched. Yeah, I am blogging before a shower. I wanted to catch my breath a bit before standing for too long. I dont have an inhaler anymore. I need to go see a dr and get a new prescription. My old allergist is downtown, and we are 30 plus miles away!


It is father’s day weekend! YAY! We gave Jason his gifts early today. Tomorrow we are having my dad and brothers over and Jason’s parents over. So I thought we would just have a little family time today and Jas agreed. At 3 we have a Father’s Day party at Gymboree. We do a photo session at Sears and then head over to Gymboree for an art project. Jason gets to see Jack’s school and meet his teachers! I am very excited about this. He has never seen where we go every Thursday. So it will be nice for Daddy to be involved with this too.

I just wanted to do a quick post. Have a great weekend!
