my weekend in photos.

Father's Day weekend had arrived, and the weekend activities definitely were about him.

It was a beautiful summer night, and we had a date. Dinner & an outdoor concert with Marc Broussard headlining - an artist we had gone to Indy to see 10 years ago while we were in college. We had drinks, then moseyed on over to the park and set up a blanket and soaked in the night.

On Saturday, Colby & Owen went to watch my niece swim then we all headed to Owen's baseball game where it reached a muggy 100 degrees. 

We stopped for smoothies on our way to drop our crew with Nana & Papa for a pool day while Colby and I headed north to the West Bottoms for Boulevardia - a music, food, & beer festival put on by KC's local Boulevard Beer. For it being a 21 and over event, I was surprised by how old I felt. Regardless, the street tacos were amazing, the beer was cheap, and it was fun to browse some of the little trendy vintage/refurb/antique shops in the area.

Dancers on the side of a building - why not? 


For Father's Day morning, I only sort of started breakfast for Colby, but he finished up while I tended to unruly children - I felt that was probably the sweeter end of the deal for him, even if he was making his own Father's Day breakfast. And, we snagged this photo during Brooks' 5 second limit to sitting "still" for a photo. 

After church, Colby headed out for the Royals game with his dad, brother, and brother-in-law. We ordered Jack Stack bbq for carry-out and feasted dad's day style on some KC ribs, brisket, beans, and cheesy potatoes for a low-key night in after a weekend we had hardly spent at home.

(Men kinda suck at selfies. Royals getting crushed doesn't help.)

Hope you had a great Father's Day celebrating the amazing men in your life!
