Making Father's Day Count

Father's Day is just around the corner, and I am excited to celebrate my husband and the wonderful father that he is! We don't usually buy big gifts for each other, we just try to spend quality time together with our girls, and do what he wants to do. Usually he wants to spend the day relaxing, which means no house/yard work and no changing diapers!

Making Father's Day Count
  1. Give a meaningful gift. This year I am going to recreate a series of photos I did with Hadley for Kory's first father's day! It will be inexpensive and meaningful, and something I know he will cherish. I'm also going to have Hadley fill out a survey about him, and that's sure to make him laugh.
  2. Spend time doing an activity together. Like I shared above, we don't typically purchase big gifts for holidays, we just try to enjoy each other by doing something special or different. We will let Dad decide what he wants to do, whether it's spending a couple hours going to our local zoo, the lake, playing at the park, or going out for ice cream (the last one is a given, if you know my husband at all)!
  3. Relax. I know when Mother's Day rolls around every year, I want to spend the entire day relaxing. It's a day that I don't feel bad for not doing the laundry or dishes, and asking my husband to do everything for the girls from making pb&j's to changing diapers. I plan to do the same thing for my husband on Father's Day.

It's finally SUMMER time! Hadley had her last day of preschool on Tuesday, and we are officially ready to enjoy some fun in the sun. During the summer months, it seems like we are on the go quite a bit. Whether it's meeting friends at the pool, walking to the library, or heading to the lake for the day or the week, we're always doing something. It's important for me to feed the girls healthy meals and snacks, because they get plenty of s'mores and popsicles too. Both girls eat one serving of yogurt a day, and our favorite are the organic Happy Family yogurts.

I love the health benefits of Happy Family yogurt products, and the daily nutrition the yogurt provides. At an early age, Happy Family had many products that helped introduce both girls to new flavors and textures, and now that they're a little older (ages 2 and 4), they still love the taste! The taste and flavors they offer are also delicious. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Whote milk yogurt with Vitamin D
  • Mindfully made with probiotics 
  • No added sweeteners (and they still LOVE the taste!)
  • Non-Gmo
  • USDA Organic
There are also different products to fit different ages of your children, we love the squeeze pouches because they are easy to take on the go, and both of my daughters (ages 2 and 4) like them! We use them at home, restaurants, and definitely throw them in the diaper bag for outside treats or running errands!

3 Things I worried about before giving birth

Preparing for childbirth was one of the scariest and exciting times of my life. I was so excited to be a mother, but it was also a terrifying thought, the actual act of being in labor and giving birth definitely kept me up at night while I was pregnant from time to time. After giving birth twice, both of my labor stories could not be anymore different from one another. Here are my thoughts & advice.
