Weekend Recap:: Father's Day

Fishing with Dad!

I spent this past weekend at home with my family and it was wonderful! Sometimes it's nice to just go home and unwind. After a few busy weeks recently, a weekend on the farm was much needed!

I drove home after a long day at work. My Mom went to see a play in Jeff City with my Grandma and Aunts, so Dad and I were left to fend for ourselves for dinner. I decided stop by and grab us some food from our favorite Mexican restaurant (El Jimador) while passing through Jeff. We ate and then both fell asleep while watching TV.

The family spent most of the morning butchering chickens (gross, I know). There was no way I was helping with that, so I volunteered to watch the kiddos. My nephew and little cousin were quite the handful! They wore me out. Later, I spent the evening with my nephew and sister, before calling it an early night.

Mom made a great big breakfast for Dad to celebrate Father's Day. After breakfast, my dad and I went fishing. He caught 20 or so, and I caught about 5. Clearly, he's the better fisherman. Later, my brother-in-law made us BBQ chicken for dinner. I think we will be eating a lot of chicken for a while!  To close out the day, my sister and I gave my dad a canvas of this picture and a saddlebag cooler for his Harley for Father's Day. He loved both gifts!

This week is going to be a busy one! I have a lot of packing and cleaning left to do before I move on Friday!

I hope you all have a great week!
