I struggled with what to get the Hubs for Fathers Day. I could have Chaz paint him something, I could get him a golf shirt or another wallet, I could by him something else that may just be just another gift. But I thought about this long and hard and came up with a Father's day photo book. I know it sounds a little cheesy but it turned out awesome! I will do a separate post on that. I do have a teaser that will make you giggle. At the end of the book I had a great page to close and I wanted to do pictures of both boys that were very recent. I wanted them to hold signs that when put together said "We love Daddy."
I don't know that I was ready for what I was about to do. Let me start by saying I spent a month on this book and then I stopped for a week. All of the sudden I remember I totally forgot to do the last picture and to order it!!! What the heck was wrong with me?!?! We were having friends over for dinner that night so as soon as Ryan got home with the boys, I shoved him out the door on a beer run and plopped the boys on the bed. My time was very limited. I didn't have time to change them or to fully clean the Kool-Aid stain on the older boy's lip. Good grief! I was yelling "Smile!!" "Smiiiiiiilllllllle, look here, please, please look up, no over here, please, stop rolling, stop pulling on your brother, Dane--over here buddy, Chaz--for.the.love!" And I give you the preview, totally unedited...
That weekend we headed to my parents house to enjoy Father's day with my Popsicle (we were celebrating Jim the next weekend.) When I woke up Father's day morning I came outside to this. Dad and Chaz were making a ship. I soon learned that this started with paper airplanes and soon turned into an aircraft carrier. Dad said Chaz had a few airplanes and then asked for tape, scissors and some pens. I'm glad my dad is such a good sport! This lasted hours, seriously hours.
Dad also made little people. I mean, what aircraft carrier doesn't have people. He made Gaga, Papa, Daddy, Mommy, Dane and Chaz. Nice work pops!
All the way to the deep end. He was a swimming fool with zero fear!
Fun times with Momma and Daddy!
I remember doing this to my dad, my cousins, my uncle, my brother, my brother's friends and any other poor sap that ended up in the pool with me. I guess it was my turn!A short break from the pool to open presents. Ryan LOVED his book. I was so very proud of myself :)
Back in the pool Yes, this is how we treat the man of the house on Father's day. Again, such a good sport.
