Hi there! I needed a extra day to get caught up from the weekend so I have our Weekend Recap from Father’s Day for you today.
We drove back to my in-law’s house Friday evening and enjoyed having a campfire meal and talking with them by the fire. Does anyone else remember making “hobo meals” on a grill or over a fire? (Basically, just a hamburger patty with diced potatoes, onions, peppers). My mother-in-law had those ready for us to cook for supper that night, and it took me back! Hobo meals used to be one of my favorite things ever, and I need to add them back into our easy summer meals rotation.
On Saturday, Travis and his little brother Trae did some front landscaping for my mother-in-law. They added some grasses and a bush, and it really looks good! (I should have got an “after” picture, but I forgot. I’ll blame it on the heat!).
They did some shooting too, but before that, Trae made a milk jug concoction to shoot at with dish soap, baking soda, etc. It blew up as he was shaking it, which made us laugh because it shocked him so much.
We had a big lunch (a theme of the weekend. We were seriously on full feed, as we always are when we visit family) of air-fried chicken, salads, fruit, and dessert. My in-laws had been raving about how good the chicken is in their air-fryer so we were anxious to test it out. It didn’t have as much of a coating as regular fried chicken and tasted more like broasted chicken. Tasty!
After talking a little bit after lunch, we packed up and headed over to my parent’s house. My mom and I had a mission: recover my papasan chair cushion. While we got to work on our sewing project, the guys golfed.
Goodbye to the ugly burnt orange!
We finished the cushion cover (except for the tufting that we will do next week) and we even had time to alter a dress I bought that needed the straps taken up. We talked for awhile outside, and then guys finally got home around 8:30. We had been planning on grilling steaks, and by the time everything was together and ready to eat, it was almost ten p.m.! Thank goodness we had eaten that big lunch earlier and weren’t too hungry. 😉
On Sunday, we were the greeters at church and my dad was the lector so we got there early.
We had my grandma out for lunch afterwards and enjoying talking to her a little while before Travis and I had to pack up and drive home.
We got home late-afternoon and both crashed hard. When we woke up from napping, very out-of-it, I might add, we had to eat a quick dinner and then head over to our softball game. Luckily, we both perked up once we talked to our friends and started playing.
After not having the best starting record this season in the B-league of softball, we won the game! It felt good to have another victory under our belts!
I spent yesterday getting caught up on laundry and being pretty lazy, to be honest. 🙂 I met up with my friend Erin to walk that morning, which was the most productive thing I did. 😉
Hope you have a wonderful week!
