A Lovely Father’s Day Weekend

Father’s Day weekend was lovely here in the Bull household. We didn’t do much of anything on Friday night aside from spend time together. On Saturday after meeting up with my cousin to drop off some Unicorn Tears and other things to help her on her fitness journey Then, we took BB to a small water park so that we could enjoy the day together.
