fathers day

we had a really nice fathers day this year. the whole family came over to our house to celebrate my fathers birthday and fathers day. my dad's birthday is so close to fathers day we always celebrate them together. we had a feast with grilled steak, chicken, corn on the cob and a tomato and mozzarella salad. for dessert i made the yummiest carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. the kids had fun running around the yard and playing in the hammock. i love having everyone over. it is so nice to see our backyard filled with so much activity and fun. i wish i was outside relaxing with everyone instead of racing around inside trying to finish the meal. why is it i can never have everything done before a party?

mason, dahlia and i were excited to give the dads some homemade barbecue sauce and cards we made for them. the barbecue sauce is a barefoot contessa recipe. the kids colored the pictures for the labels and i printed them on sticky paper. it was a fun easy project that we were able to finish in a day. happy fathers day.
