cards and cupcakes

We had a pretty low-key Father's Day around here, but that was certainly welcomed.  

We enjoyed our time together, tried a few new recipes {some better than others} and took a nice long evening walk around the neighborhood {one of our favorite weekend activities}.

Here's a look at the cards the grandpas got in the mail for Father's Day.  
I think they turned out rather cute!

what's cuter than a "naked" baby wearing only a tie?!

And here's a little peek at the card I made for Travis {from Callan}.

I found this recipe for maple bacon cupcakes while cruising around blogland last week and thought it would be the perfect "something sweet" for Father's Day.  Plus, when cooking for a man, you can't really go wrong with bacon.

They didn't disappoint!  The perfect combo of sweet and salty.

We each enjoyed one.  The rest got packed up and taken to work with Travis this afternoon.

And as for a Monday?  It's looking pretty good.

happy mail!
