It's the official first day of summer, and we're already off to a running start! We had a relaxing weekend kicking off a beautiful stretch of weather at last over the next few days here in Portsmouth. I asked Uka a few times what he wanted to do for Father's Day, and he said he wanted to keep it quiet and most importantly, watch last night's game. That worked for me!
After Grayson's swimming lesson on Saturday we made our way over to Portsmouth's Juneteenth celebration. We missed it last year, but this year I had the chance to read the roll call of slaves known to have lived here in Portsmouth. Nia and Grayson enjoyed the music especially during the procession and at the African Burying Ground.

For dinner Uka ended up using our new Lodge cast iron reversible griddle to make pork chops and they turned out delicious, but boy is cast iron tough to deal with. My previous reversible griddle from Crate & Barrel gave up the ghost and compared to the Lodge I think my old one must've been fake. We've been watching You Tube tutorials trying to make sure we're using it and cleaning it correctly (it's a beast to clean).
Last night Uka hung out with another dad downtown to watch THE GAME (O-H-I-O!) while I did some housework. I debated watching Game of Thrones alone but started seeing on Twitter how amazing it was so decided to wait for Uka to come home to watch it. I'm SO glad we did! It was definitely the best episode of the season and someone better be getting a bonus for that epic battle scene (speaking of which, this made me LOL!).
It was a pretty quiet weekend and just what Uka wanted. He's my homeyloverfriend and definitely makes this fatherhood thing look so good! I love him so.
