The day after Auntie Jenn's baby shower was Father's Day. We spent the day up at Burke's mom's house poolside with the family that was still in town from the shower.
Before I get into all the fun we had lounging around up at Marti's house, I forgot one cute picture from the end of Jenn's shower day:
This is Hannah. My cousin, although Drew has claimed her for his own. So much so, that I am not allowed to refer to her as my cousin. She is Drew's cousin...also known as "Hannah, my faaaaaaaaavorite cousin". Anyway, Hannah and my Auntie Pam were able to spend the rest of Saturday after the shower hanging out with us. Drew and Collin ate up the time they got with Hannah and she was so sweet to them! Hannah (and Auntie Pam), we miss you already!
Back to Father's Day. We spent the morning at our house before heading up the hill to Marti's. My parents got Nathan and Burke (who will be a Daddy in three-ish weeks!) these "fruit salad" trees for Father's Day. I had never heard of them before, but they are four fruit trees graded onto one tree. Coolest. Thing. Ever. They boys' happen to be of the stone fruit variety, so the trees will grow: apricots, white peaches, yellow peaches, and plums...all on the same tree. So cool!
After the little boys were all rested up from their naps, we loaded up and met up with everyone up at Burke's mom's house. She has an envy-worthy piece of property that is always a treat to go and visit. It's one of the best places for boys to just be boys...and don't think I'm just talking about the little boys here!
Auntie Christi, Nammy and Tanner
Jenn and Burke's jump off the diving board. I don't even have words for this picture.
In typical Mac style, we managed to snag a few friends to add to our group for the day! Kristen was still in town from the shower, and Nicole is one of Christi's besties from highschool that we roped into coming to hang out with us.
Drew and Collin's favorite thing about Marti's house is that they get to shoot the pellet gun...
...under some very careful watch and major assistance.
Love this hubbs of mine!
My momma and Tanner
Proof that Nathan is nice to you Christinie Weenie! ;)
After dinner, Marti invited the Littles to go and feed the horses with her. BIG yes on the boys' part! Uncle Burke went with them, and the next thing I know, I glance over towards the barn and see this....
That would be Uncle Burke, teaching Drew how to swing like Tarzan from the hot walker (and yes, it was on). Um, what little boy wouldn't be in heaven with his own Tarzan machine??
Not to be left out, Coll got a turn too. The boys each got one lap around the hot walker and then would drop and switch with the other.
Eventually Burkie got tired, and it was Daddy's turn to be the runner. As I watched the boys (both big and little) gleefully swing around the hot walker, I asked Marti if Burke and his brother Brandon used to do this when they were younger. Yep. Only they did it well into their teen years and would turn it on with friends while their parents were gone. I can only imagine the shenanigans teen aged boys could get into on this thing.
Suffice it to say, we had a ton of fun and a very relaxing day. Thank you again Marti! We always love the trips up to your place!
The day after Father's day, most everyone that had been in town for the baby shower, left. My mom and Christi were the only two that stayed behind and we soaked up the extra three days we had with them.
Drew used the extra few days to squeeze in as many snuggles as possible...
...and Tanny got his first haircut! Really, Christi only trimmed up the edges, but it was definitely a haircut and Tanner did great.
In fact, he smiled...
