Another Monday is here and I am super excited to be heading to Graeagle this afternoon. I am looking forward to the sun, clean mountain air and lots of family time. But we did have an amazing weekend.

Friday after work, I took my dad to lunch for an early Father's Day celebration. We had the best burgers and steak sandwich. Then we grabbed coffee and I headed back to pick up the girls. We had an allergy appointment for Miss Sutton. Since she got hives a few weeks back, we wanted to make sure she wasn't allergic to anything. And I knew the awful allergy test was on the agenda, but Sutton did not. Poor baby girl hated the test, but I loved the cuddles she gave me while waiting for the test to be over with.

The good news is, Sutton isn't allergic to any of the things they tested for (wheat, eggs, milk, cats, dogs, peanuts, etc). The red spot is her allergy (histamine) hive reaction to compare to.

All the while, Avery was hanging out with her grandma and she was a bit crazy. Eye teething problems.

That evening I fed them dinner, we played a bit and took a long walk to calm them down. Don't miss the afternoon nap. It causes crazy babies.
 We only eat our food with our sunnies on.
And with our pacis

Saturday morning we went to breakfast, met up with a friend, took our afternoon naps and then ran a few errands to prepare for Graeagle. We went to dinner at Thai food and the girls ate chicken sautee and roti. They didn't have an allergic reaction to the peanuts so we call that a huge win! When we got home, we put the girls to bed and caught up on some tv.

Sunday we got up bright and early for Father's Day breakfast with my in-laws at our favorite restaurant. After we got ready, we gave Rory his gifts.

After breakfast the girls took their naps. My in-laws came over to hang out with the girls so Rory and I could go to Banana Repulic to buy some clothes, grab some coffee and go to Sierra Water Gardens to plant Rory's Nevada planter box that we got him for Father's Day.

After our errands, we came home to hang out with the girls and relax. They took their afternoon naps, but were still a bit cranky after due to teething their eye teeth. So we ordered some local Italian takeout (a new place), ate dinner, gave the girls a bath and had an early night for them. We spent the evening packing some stuff for vacation, writing this post and then my sister came over to drop off some movies for my iPad and some yummy fresh fish from our family friend. It was a good night. 

We capped off the evening with ice cream, wine and some Million Dollar Listing (New York).

How was your Father's Day weekend? 

I am linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.


  1. So glad Sutton isn't allergic to the things they tested. What do you do from here then? Great gifts for Rory!! I love the succulent box. So cute and he did a great job planting it. Looks like a great weekend.

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend!! I love that the girls eat with their sunnies on. So glad sutton didn't have any reactions to the allergy testing. That's not a fun test at all! What a great weekend y'all had celebrating the men in your life!

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend despite the teething! I'm glad Sutton isn't allergic to anything they tested, that has to be a relief! Have fun on vaca!

  4. Yay negative tests! Now give them PB! lol. Glad you had a good weekend.

  5. What a great weekend! Yay for no allergies! Wonder what the hives were from?

  6. Yay for no allergies, that is such great news. Now, they can have Peanut Butter. Sounds like it was a great weekend.

  7. Oh man, those allergy tests just LOOK so miserable :( Glad it didn't show anything awful to be allergic to!

  8. I know you're SO relieved that Sutton isn't allergic to anything. That poor girl, I know she probably hated every second of the allergy test. We had to have Jacob allergy tested when he was two and I felt so awful taking him in there for it. He did surprisingly well, though.

    Hope you guys have the very best time this week! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  9. What a great weekend! Have the best time on vacation! I know you will!

  12. What an awesomely fun weekend. Poor Sutton with that test, ugh. Good news though! Have an amazing vacation.

  13. Aww, poor Sutton with that allergy test. So glad she's not allergic to anything but that had to be rough for all of you! Sounds like a great weekend to me. Love the pic of the girls and Rory! Enjoy your vacation!!
