High Five for Friday (6.24.16)

1. Thanks to everyone who sent in their daddy daughter photos in honor of Father's Day! Here are a few of my favorites:

Cora and Emma's daddies have it all figured out, and that's easier 
said than done, given the fact that both have naturally curly hair.

Lily's daddy (who happens to be my brother-in-law, which is why I can call him 
out here), on the other hand, should probably work on his technique a little bit.

2. After nearly nine months, I finally visited my doc about my plantar fasciitis. She referred me to a podiatrist, and at my appointment last week we ruled out broken bones and bone spurs and confirmed my self-diagnosis. Though the plantar fasciitis is frustrating, I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard that my problems end there. And I certainly won't complain about the podiatrist's recommendation that I have my foot professionally massaged regularly!

3. Earlier this week my Hal Gal spent 48 hours fighting off an unpleasant stomach bug. She is without a doubt my bravest, toughest, and most cooperative patient (and is back to 100% now), but even she needed to spend two evenings, two mornings, and one afternoon cuddling on the couch. I hate it when she feels yucky, but I love those extra snuggles.

4. On a related note, on Saturday morning - right before Hallie fell ill - we bought the entire Full House series on DVD. Target had the set on sale for $20 off the regular price, and I just couldn't pass up that deal...which turned out to be the best decision I made all weekend, because Hallie and I watched almost the entire first season while she was under the weather. I don't usually binge watch television shows, but when I do, I watch Full House.

5. Happiness Highlights:
This sweet little boy gets casted to correct his scoliosis in about a
week, so we threw him a Happy Cullen Day water party (once he gets
casted he won't be able to get wet) to show him how much we love him.
Part of our crew waiting patiently to surprise Cullen
(and desperate to use the water slide behind them).
Water balloon fight!
Not sure what's going on with her face, but check out her
adorable Tiny Dancer shirt, made for her by my friend Jenn!
This boy - with his relay team and their second place ribbons - learned
a lot about the sport (and himself) during his first-ever track meet. 
I'm so thankful for great friends who pick Hallie up, take her to swimming
lessons, feed her lunch, take her swimming (again), and then deliver her to
me at the gym so she won't have to sit through nearly five-hour track meets. 
After she made shirts for the little girls, Jenn made
these fabulous tanks for the tiny dancers' moms. 
Before she got sick, Hallie helped me make a
delicious peach blueberry pie for Tom for Father's Day.
These dads celebrated Father's Day early with a day-trip to San Marcos
to play disc golf, swim in the river, and eat a couple of delicious meals.

Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
