Anniversary and Father's Day Weekend

We had a very busy weekend!! 
First up was Ella's best friend's flamingo birthday party!

It was at our all-time favorite "jumpy place," so Ella and her friends were able to run around and get all tired out before enjoying some yummy cake!

Sweetest friends! It's so much fun to turn 4!

After the party, Ella and I made the long trek up to Ikea. (It's only like half an hour, but feels SO far away!) I tried to assemble a dresser for the baby's room all by myself....and I messed up the screws. I got Trav to take over the dresser project (which I should have just asked him to do it in the first place, whatevs!) and he needed more screws since I had basically stripped a bunch. Whoops.

And you can't go to Ikea without getting a cinnamon roll!

That afternoon, Trav and I got ready for our anniversary dinner while our kids looked at our wedding pictures! 

Trav also got me these pretty flowers and a card to celebrate 6 years being married!

As usual, we had dinner at Bentley's on 27, which is where we had our wedding reception! We go here every year and it never disappoints!

This was the view from our table!

This was only the second time I've been pregnant on our anniversary (last time was when I was like 6 or 7 weeks pregnant with Ella!), and I forgot how depressing it is to not be able to order a steak (I don't want a well-done steak!) or a glass of wine! But my stuffed shrimp was equally delicious!

They also brought us a complementary dessert to say Congrats on 6 Years/New Baby/Happy Early Father's Day! So many things to celebrate! :)

On Sunday, we had a very low-key Father's Day. Ella and Lucas got Trav a Cookie Monster card (that Lucas is obsessed with!) and an updated version of The Daddy Book. I made one when Ella was about 16 months old, and Ella, Lucas and Trav still read it together almost every night before bed. So, I thought Lucas should have his own version. You can see how I made the original here!

I also updated the kids' pictures holding the D-A-D letters. Can't believe next year we will have 3 little people to hold these letters!

Trav was sweet enough to finish up this dresser on Father's Day! Now Baby #3 has somewhere to put all of his/her clothes!

When your mom is craving popsicles, you get one (or 2) too! 

Ella was also in need of a new bin to put all of her stuffed animals, as they were about to take over her bed. No, really, she almost had no where to sleep! So we headed up to Home Goods, and got a huge pink storage bin and danced in front of the mirrors. :)

We came home to one too-cool-for-school dude!! I was shocked he wanted to wear his sunglasses...and he actually left them on his head!

Trav grilled us some Italian sausages with peppers and onions for dinner. It was SO good. Even Ella ate the sausage!!! 

We ended our Father's Day by reading the newest version of the Daddy Book! Lucas was too into the story to look up for a picture!

And that's a wrap on our 6th anniversary and Father's Day 2018!
