Isn’t weird that all of a sudden you get to participate in a holiday you’ve never celebrated before? I mean I’m sure we’ve all celebrated and participated in these holidays, but to be the guest of honor is a little different. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me. I’m talking about Father’s day, not that I was the guest of honor, but it’s how I felt on Mother’s Day…anyway, we had a great day celebrating Tim and the amazing daddy he is to Conor.
We started the morning with mimosas and waffles!
Ended the day with peach crisp and homemade vanilla bean ice cream. Homemade ice cream takes me back to my childhood. Every sweet, creamy bite I had, took me back to summertime, sitting on the porch at my grandpa’s ranch, watching the ice cream maker churn. His ice cream was the best. He was the best. I thought of him a lot yesterday, and wished he too was here to celebrate this day with us.
In between those two we had red chile enchiladas. I seriously feel like all I did yesterday was cook, not a bad thing I enjoy cooking. It was just made challenging by a clingy baby.
We also had a fun time getting crafty creating the first of many homemade gifts for Dad.
The one thing we did not do is get a picture of the two boys together, hashtag mom fail. It was a great day though. Conor and I are so lucky to have Tim. His love and devotion to our little family makes me love him more and more everyday. I am looking forward to celebrating him on Father’s Day for many more years to come.
How was your father’s day? Who did you celebrate?
