I came home from dinner¬†last night with Bre to a new family code that “can’t ever be broken until the end of time”. ¬†I had nothing to do with this family code — yet I support it with every fiber of my being.

PARRISH FAMILY CODE

Respect others,
Take care of your brothers,
Never lie to your mother.

Jon is the very very best dad for our little family.¬†I love his heart + the way he’s making respect a priority in our home. I hope the boys turn out EXACTLY like him. Aren’t they¬†lucky I convinced him to marry me? ūüôā

All the camp sites we were planning on staying in for Fathers Day were full by Friday afternoon, so we faced a bit of an adventure head on + stumbled upon a gold mine while we were at it. WHO KNEW THIS BEAUTY EXISTED IN OUR BACKYARD? Utah, you pretty! Real, real prettttty.

5 quick memories before I gush over how obsessed we are with Jon for Fathers Day:
1. Squashing all 4 of us onto one motorcycle | 2 for 2 riders falling asleep
2. Conversations about each of the kids on said motorcycle ride
3. Meditating in the most serene place. My heart was overflowing. Still is.
4. Jack listening to his voice all the way up the canyon, all the way back. His mind will be BLOWN when we take him on a rumble strip in the mini.
5. Whittier’s¬†joining us for lunch + motorcycles!

5 quick sours to remind you exactly how normal our life is:
1. I forgot the bag with the cheese + marshmallows. “ohhh you guys love egg only omelets, remember? …wait, can they even be called omelets¬†with just one ingredient…..?¬†
2. the egg carton disintegrated in the cooler of melted ice
3. cold sore from H E DOUBLE
4. jack biffed it off the chair after his watermelon was gone. #bloodynose
5. camp fire laundry

I think I’ll save the ranting as to why Jon is the best dad in all the land — for his Fathers Day¬†card. But it feels good to be ahead of the game on a post for once! Huzzah!¬†Happy Fathers Day weekend! xx

Finding a balance with screentime by lifestyle blogger Ginger Parrish

I had to let go of “the rules” for how much time is too much when it comes to the internet.
Jon has found plenty of studies supporting how screentime makes kids smarter + I’ve found just as many that support the exact opposite. You’ll always find what you’re looking for online! That’s A FACT. ūüôā But we’ve sat down as a couple + found what we feel is best for our family. I hope that you’re able to find a balance that is tweaked juuust right for your family as well.

New Jams in our Family Jams: The Coolest Family Pajamas

Last week the temps hit 50 degrees. Naturally, I boxed up the snow gear + put it back into the giant tub in the attic. Then came the weekend. RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, + SNOW. Woof.

Valentine’s Day this year was pretty memorable. I’ve learned that the more I invest in this little family of mine, the happier I am with life. Motherhood without regrets. Wife life # 1. The rest starts to fall away +¬†I ¬†genuinely enjoy the way it feels at the end of the day. It’s more important for me to live a life that feels¬†good on the inside, before it looks good on the outside!
