Father’s Day 2012
This is the first Father’s Day where we have both kids. Both Faith and Shawn’s classes at daycare had a special ice cream party for me on two separate days. So I got to have a cone on Thursday and a sundae on Friday. Gotta love it when you get that many treats in one week and best of all, for free.
Both Faith and Shawn gave me a special gift they made at daycare, you can see the cool gifts. The funny thing is they both gave me their gifts but when we got in the car they wanted to hold onto the gift they just gave me. But after we got home BOTH kids wouldn’t give the gift back and when I went to take it from them they got really upset. I don’t think they understand the idea behind the joy of giving rather than receiving. We’ll have teach them that lesson, I guess.
Then on Friday De-Ann and I had planned a date, but little did I know what De-Ann actually had prepared–a Father’s Day date. First we went to a special ice cream place where they put the ingredients into the ice cream flavour of your choice: Marble Slab Creamery. Then we went to the driving range to hit a jumbo bucket of balls. De-Ann had put my clubs, shoes and glove in the trunk in advance. Great time hitting balls with my Sweetheart! Then we went to a new park on the Lakeshore and walked on the shoreline. While on our date our kids’ favourite babysitter was taking care of our kids–Denita. Not sure if she knew what De-Ann had planned, but she was a big part of us going on our date. Thanks Denita!
Then today, Saturday, the kids and De-Ann made me a cool Father’s Day card and bought me a Holland soccer jersey–something I have really wanted. Fun! Pictures to follow soon. Maybe in my next post. Stay tuned.
