Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!  Before we get to the party and our Backyard Summer Recipes, it was a fun week this past week here! My baby turned FOUR! I can hardly believe it! He is so excited to be “finally four!” He thinks since we celebrated his birthday early at school back in May that he was four already. We had to keep telling him he wasn’t four until June, and then once June was here it wasn’t until June 12th…so needless today come June 12th he told EVERYONE he was FINALLY FOUR!

On the blog this week there is a Freshly Picked Moccs Giveaway only open until Sunday night at midnight (CST) so hurry and enter if you haven’t already!  I also shared some of these great Patriotic Party Printables, perfect for your 4th of July Party.

I also talked about my smoothie addiction and how these DOLE Power Fruit & Veggie Shakers help me with my addiction :)  Lastly, these patriotic popsicles with fresh fruit are fabulous all summer long!  They are easy to make with only 3 ingredients!
