Father's Day Weekend

To start our Father's Day celebrating, Eva, Enzo, and I took a trip to Cool Creations last week to paint a ceramic mug for daddy...

When we went to pick it up on Friday, daddy was with us in the car, so I made sure the lady wrapped it up in case he got a sneak peak inside the bag.  As I got back in the car Eva asked what I got.  I said "I picked up what we painted."  Trying to answer her, but be discreet, as well.  She says "Oh, you mean, for daddy?", which Dana immediately heard and chuckled at.  And, I said "Yes, what we painted for daddy."  Then she says "Oh, you mean the mug we painted for daddy?"  Hahaha, double giggles.  Gone are the days of getting things past her.  Regardless, when Eva brought the bag to daddy in bed this morning, he was very delighted with the results, as was I.  It is a big coffee/soup mug, painted by Eva with her handprint and Enzo's footprint...

Following gift time, was daddy's favorite thing to do...go out to eat.  We walked to a delicious local restaurant with my new double stroller (which I am over the moon excited about)...

And once we reached Bistro sixty, we walked in to them ready to suit all of our needs.  We needed enough space for the stroller, chocolate milk for my little lady (her all time fave drink of choice when out to eat), and a mimosa for daddy.  Cheers!

...and when we are "going all out", you can't say no to dessert...

Yesterday, daddy spent the day extracting honey from his hives...

It was the perfect way to spend the start of Father's Day weekend.  We helped when we could, where Eva found the perfect position in the process: Taste Testing...

When it was all done, we got a ton of honey!

Free honey trial for any honey-lovin' visitors ;)

After breakfast today, we took a family trip to City Farmers Nursery to return the honey extractor.  What I saw was Dana's dream home.  Farmer Bill and his family live in the city and yet manage to maintain a homesteading atmosphere with goats, chickens, horse, fruit trees, turtle ponds, beehives, and more where he runs a business which thrives on trade.  In fact, we paid him to use the extracter in honey.  A pound of honey a day.  Here is daddy with his little munchkins (as he calls them) taking a break after feeding the goats at the farm...

All in all, I think Daddy got exactly what he wanted for Father's Day...and we enjoyed spending it together.  :)
