Happy Father’s Day!

Good morning!

This morning we woke up and attacked daddy with a gift basket full of love singing “Happy Father’s Day To You….”. It was quite cheesy, but we are a cheesy family.

In our family we have this tradition that started back when I was pregnant with JJ. Scott got me just a bunch of things he thought would make life a little easier for me being a new mommy for Mother’s Day, from a nice comfy pair of yoga pants, to new flip flops, to another pair of sunglasses I’ll eventually loose, sit on, or have to replace months later. For my husband, I know the way to his heart is through the snacks he loves. He also loves sports paraphernalia, especially stuff for his LA Kings! (Yay Stanley Cup Champions!!). So instead of doing a gift bag, I thought making a gift basket looked so much better!

So the kids and I found the manliest basket we could find at the dollar store, some “manly” basket filler, 😉 and then we hit target to load his basket up full of the goodies he loves! The kids had a blast helping!

JJ was especially excited to give daddy a trophy that said “Best Dad Ever”.
The other things that we loaded him up with were his teriyaki beef jerky he loves, a few gadgets for his phone, a new decal that says “Score” for his mancave, some chocolate covered peanuts and pretzels and a variety of mixed nuts. We got him a gift card to his favorite restaurant  and we also got him a picture frame that included a picture of all of us on our trip to Disneyland.
Its also a tradition for the honoree to choose the evening’s dinner. So daddy gets to choose what we are doing for dinner tonight. 
Just after we presented daddy with his gift basket.

But daddy really isn’t asleep, lots of morning tickling and rough housing ensued. 
This Father’s day I am grateful for the wonderful man I married. He is an awesome provider for our family. The best handyman and computer wiz I know and he’s always bailing me out of all the conundrums I get into. He’s a fun partner in crime. We work great together and he really is my best friend! Happy Father’s Day babe and Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
