This weekend was full of wonderful, simple days for Father’s Day.
Friday, we enjoyed a movie date night with our friends, Chrissy and Mike for a showing of Prometheus. Believe the hype. It’s as incredible as you’ve heard. I loved it. Well, I loved what I could see through my obstructed view as I kept peeking through my hand-covered eyes. Yes, I was the chick you heard shrilling behind you.
On Saturday, we enjoyed a delicious meal at Bombay Masala with my SIL and her family.
Then on Father’s Day, my parents came over for breakfast but not before the kids and I showered Dad with all the wonderful homemade gifts we crafted, thanks to Pinterest.
With acrylic based paint pens for glass, I traced their hands and then they decorated their dollar store pint glasses. My girls came up with some clever sayings for their hand-printed pint glasses. Allana’s listed different types of alcoholic beverages on her handprint and wrote, “You’re drinking again?!” Emmalynn wanted to hers to say, “Cheers to a great daddy!” Allana thought “Mine!” would be a funny phrase for Liam’s pint glass.
We also gave Dad this D-A-D frame.
(The frame is from Marshalls. I found cardboard pressed D and a letters at Michael’s and painted them with red acrylic paint. I had each child hold a letter as I
took their photo snapped several photos.)
Emmalynn made Dad another photo gift in school.
Allan loved all his gifts. I loved the outtakes for the photos that didn’t make the frame.
But I truly loved the simple gifts and fun which made Father’s
Day weekend simply wonderful.
