Father's Day Fun

What a fun Father's Day! We started out with a special gift for Patrick, a hard bound book full of pictures of the kids. We snuck away to the park a week before Nathan left for his loooong trip to Mexico (and thus missed Father's Day) and I snapped pictures of the kids wearing three of Patrick's favorite Redwings hockey jerseys. Lilly is wearing a jersey with our last name that I had made for Patrick as a wedding gift, almost 10 years ago.

We enjoyed breakfast at Perkins, picked up a few snacks and bottled water and headed out to Michigan's Adventure! Topher had fun taking Daddy on all of the rides he is finally tall enough for, he is far more of a thrill seeker than I would have ever imagined.

Lilly loved the "flying" elephants and airplanes but freaked out on the log ride, we generated many stares from people as she screamed her head off. The water park was a wonderful and refreshing treat in the hot afternoon.

What a fun way to spend Father's Day!

  5. The pic with the kids in Patrick's jersey's is so cool!

  6. I'd have that first picture framed & hanging if I were you. What a great gift idea those pics were, and an action-packed, very kid friendly way to celebrate Dad's Day.
