This was the kind of weekend, best told in snapshots. We went from one thing to to next; all fun, but making for a busy few days. It feels as if we are settling into summer, where days are spent outside and plans start to fill the calendar. The weather was picture perfect and we savored every moment spent with both friends and family.
First, on Friday night, we drove to East Lansing to have an early Father's Day dinner with Melissa, since she was busy with her Pom team, the remainder of the weekend. My husband chose our favorite mexican restaurant and though we missed Megan, we had a really nice time. It was a chilly night, so the outdoor fireplace felt great as we walked by.
Saturday brought a bridal shower for my neighbor's daughter. It definately is the season of weddings for us this summer and I find bridal showers such a happy occasion. It's so special to see a girl you watched grow up, so poised and lovely, as their wedding day approaches and to be a part of that happiness. This shower had a picnic theme and the flowers were just lovely and so summery.
Saturday night we enjoyed a wonderful evening with friends; appetizers, wine and a patio fireplace. Warm days and cool nights make for the perfect Michigan summer and so far, it had been spectacular.
Sunday afternoon, Father's Day was spent around my sister's inviting pool, as we celebrated all the fathers in our lives. We enjoyed a great barbeque and especially enjoyed being outside on a perfect summer day.
