Happy Father's Day

Jim wanted a lazy, relaxing family day complete with sleeping in, lounging by the pool, basking in the sun, and a man size grill feast at the end of the day.   It did turn out to be cloudy most of the day, but otherwise Riesling and I were able to comply with his request.  Little Miss was tired of waiting for Daddy to celebrate the day and started getting a bit loud around 9:00...that's sleeping in to parents though, right?!  She was just excited about his presents. 

Jim and I agreed on an inexpensive & simple gifts and handmade cards for Mother's & Father's Days.  Riesling and I coordinated our efforts this year.  I ordered him a batch of live ladybugs to help control garden best, Riesling got him a LadyBug Girl book for them to read together and together we made him a pretty bright red card to fit the theme. 

For his man feast, we started off with caprese salad with fresh basil from the garden, followed by salmon (and a lobster tail for Dad!) & zucchini on the grill and yummy sweet potato fries.  Delicious! 

Riesling even got to ride on Daddy's shoulders for the first time.  I think she was a little confused at first but ended up being really excited about the whole thing.  What a perfect day to be a Dad....
