It was a weekend filled with celebrations with some of our nearest and dearest. On Friday evening, Alicia, Kimberly, Amanda, and their husbands made dinner for Matthew and me to fete our second wedding anniversary.

From baked brie to steaks from Pinzone’s and lobster tails from Lobster Brothers on the grill to a decadent chocolate cheesecake, the food was delicious! But what was even nicer was the time with friends.

The evening was my Mom’s idea and I can’t thank her enough for setting the wheels in motion. We’re also so grateful to our amazing friends for pampering us with an incredible meal! Even Jeffrey found this an occasion worthy of getting all dressed up…

Saturday and Sunday saw back-to-back Father’s Day celebrations. On Saturday, Matthew’s family came over for a traditional hot dogs and hamburgers cook-out. The weather was perfect and the kids had a great time running around the back yard. Matthew’s Dad was in his glory, surrounded by kids and grandkids!

On Sunday, Jeffrey and I had some surprises up our sleeves to celebrate Matthew’s first Father’s Day, starting out with Jeffrey’s outfit for the day…

After the three of us celebrated in the morning, my parents came over for the third cook-out of the weekend (tequila lime marinated flank steak FTW). Our grill certainly got a work-out this weekend! It was a lovely weekend celebrating lots of special moments, made all the more so with the new little man in our lives. This picture pretty much says it all…
