Happy Father’s Day!

I have one of the best dads in the whole wide world, so Mommy and I spoiled him today!

001

Daddy got to start his morning with a book and coffee. He loved it!

012

While he relaxed, Mommy slaved away in the kitchen on his top-secret Father’s Day dessert.

015

Once I woke up, we had breakfast. Nothing says, “We love you so much, Daddy!” like melted doughnuts and burned bacon. We had some slight mishaps, but Daddy still appreciated it.

024

Next it was time for presents. Mommy gave Daddy a card about which he was very excited!

026

She also got him some good books. Looks like I have some fun dates with Daddy in my future!

027

Then Daddy opened my present. Even though I screamed and screamed during the making of this gift, deep down I was very excited to give it to Daddy.

033

Daddy does a great job of holding my hand!

041

When Mommy blow dries her hair every morning, I ask her very nicely to blow dry my hair as well. This is the face I make when it’s happening.

039

Mommy and Daddy asked for a nice picture before church. It had already been a long morning. This is all I had left to give.

044

After we got home from church, Mommy started preparing baby back ribs for dinner – an EXTRA special treat for Daddy. Step #1 was to simmer the ribs for an hour.

055

Step #2 was to bake them in the oven for three hours.

056

During the afternoon, Daddy wanted to weed. Go for it, Daddy!

066

Then I woke up from my nap and was ready to get outside and enjoy the beautiful 80-degree weather!

075

Daddy and I had a lot of fun playing in the sprinkler.

I really started having fun when Daddy began splashing me.

I’m also getting REALLY good at climbing up our play structure.

109

Made it to the top!

The final step of the ribs was to grill them for just about 20 minutes or so to add a little crispiness. (Daddy also grilled some asparagus for the dinner tonight and chicken for lunches later in the week.)

122

The grill master!

125

After smelling these bad boys all day, they were finally finished! We had such a yummy dinner!

049

After dinner was over, Mommy brought out the Father’s Day Fruit Pizza. Oh. My. Goodness. This was amazing! Mommy and Daddy even had seconds. Yum, yum, yum!

132

After dinner, we still had some time before I needed to go to bed, so we went outside to help Daddy wash the cars.

126

Okay, okay, I know I’m supposed to be helping, but I’m just so tired.

130

We celebrated Daddy so much today that I couldn’t move a muscle. I was wiped!

I love you very much, Daddy, and I hope you had a special day. I know that I sure had fun!

P.S. I have many other special men in my life (i.e. Grandpa Jim and Grandpa Roland), so I hope you had a great Father’s Day as well!
