Vacation Pictures

I’m back (for a couple of days)!!! My family went on a summer trip and this post is some of the things we did. Unfortunately, I was busy trying to keep my dog from barking at people that I couldn’t bring my camera with me so you’ll have to live with pictures from iPhones of inferior quality! The first few photos I’m showing you are of some hot air balloons we got to see…no we didn’t go on them as the rides probably cost more than my first car, but either way, they were pretty cool!

I feel like I look tired…maybe the 4-mile walk in 85 degrees was the reason………..

The one in the middle was HUGE!!! They also loaded it a little too full and they had trouble getting off the ground.

One of my sisters took this and didn’t it turn out amazing?!

And that’s it! We mostly played Bananagrams and Ticket to Ride on this trip…which was awesome, and we also took a lot of walks!

Update on Winnie: She is now 36 pounds and continuing to grow! She is really good at being patient and is losing more teeth. Tomorrow she’s going to a picnic with many people so I think it’ll be really good for her! She ate a marshmallow someone dropped on the floor today so she was kinda hyper……which was SO cute! 

 

Alright, I’ll see you next Wednesday…after that, I shall leave for twoish weeks! 🙂

Happy Father’s Day!!

Happy Father's Day Blue Calligraphy Script Over White Wood Texture Background

Happy Father’s Day guys! Today is the day we celebrate our father’s and how much they mean to us ❤

A little info about Father’s Day: The nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972–58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official–that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. 

The campaign to celebrate the nation’s fathers did not meet with the same enthusiasm–perhaps because, as one florist explained, “fathers haven’t the same sentimental appeal that mothers have.”

On July 5, 1908, a West Virginia church sponsored the nation’s first event explicitly in honor of fathers, a Sunday sermon in memory of the 362 men who had died in the previous December’s explosions at the Fairmont Coal Company mines in Monongah, but it was a one-time commemoration and not an annual holiday.

The next year, a Spokane, Washington, woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, one of six children raised by a widower, tried to establish an official equivalent to Mother’s Day for male parents. She went to local churches, the YMCA, shopkeepers, and government officials to drum up support for her idea, and she was successful: Washington State celebrated the nation’s first statewide Father’s Day on June 19, 1910.

I love holidays that involve giving gifts so this year I bought my dad a grill for Father’s Day which he was super excited about! I gave it to him last week cause I was super excited! We also are having lunch for my grandparents to celebrate Father’s Day with them!!

 

How are you guys celebrating this fun and amazing holiday for your dad? Happy Father’s Day guys! 🙂
