Dada Day

So BL now officially has two Father's days under his belt. This one was significantly different from the one last year, but I think he enjoyed it nonetheless. This time last year the kiddo was still a wee worm of a baby, and I am pretty sure BL just spent the day reveling in the pure freedom of not dealing with a newborn and/or pants. Seeing as we currently live with my parents he had to wear pants this year. But I digress.

We had to split the day up a bit since we had not just BL to celebrate, but our two fathers as well. BL took the some time earlier this past week for himself so that he could have his own "Father's" day where he just got to veg out and eat junk while playing his video games. So having to share today wasn't too bad.

We spent the first half of the day with my family, going out to lunch at a restaurant on the Columbia River. Fortunately we had another gorgeous day here, so it was lovely to have a view of the water and some sunny skies to take a walk out under after our meal. We have been trying to encourage our kiddo to walk as much as possible now when we are out in public spaces, especially since he now has a proper fitting pair of shoes. Can you believe the kiddo wears a 6 1/2 wide shoe? He really is a big boy.

Lunch was good with a our little patron, we are pretty fortunate that all it takes for a good visit is his own share of grub and free access to a cup of water. There was also a little two year old boy sitting behind us, so he was happy to share some toys with his new friend as well.

The second half of the day was spent with BL's family, where we went and caught a movie and then had Mexican food for dinner. MR missed the movie but caught up with us for dinner. Again a very good little boy, and all it took was some beans and chips. We'll see what that looks like later.

I am glad we got to have a day to pamper BL because in the midst of everything crazy in our lives he always manages to take care of me and the kiddo. It's nice to return the favor. He is everything and more than what MR and I could ask for in his father. A great husband and a daddy to boot, Happy Father's day indeed.
