Our Sub-Par Father's Day

Father's Day fell the first weekend we moved in.  We were still shell-shocked from the move-in surprises and process of finding a home for all of our things in our new space.  There were still boxes everywhere, clutter and pictures were leaning on the walls, still waiting to be hung. 

I remembered Saturday night that it was Father's Day the next day, so I scrambled to the store, bought a card and a few treats and a store-bought box of bakery cupcakes with "Dad" sticks in them.  Can you tell already that it was destined to be a sub-par Father's Day?  (groan) It was.  :(

I think I tried to make something yummy out of what we had in our fridge/freezer.  Pork Tenderloin and rice pilaf, maybe?  A green salad, I'm sure. 

We did do one great thing and let him take a big, long Sunday nap.  In typical Josh fashion, he awoke with hair mussed up and a croaky voice saying, "I didn't mean to fall asleep!"  It's almost a running joke.  I wish I could fall asleep as fast and as soundly as he does. 

We broke out our store-bought cupcakes after dinner and ate them on our back deck.  Yaks declared thoughtfully, "Mom?  You know what?  I don't think I even LIKE frosting.  It's too sweet." 

Well, whatever it was, it wasn't nearly what it SHOULD have been, and what our dear dad deserves.  He's pretty great, and loves us a whole lot! We hope he knows that.  Three cheers for next year!

Naps are always the best gifts on Father's Day anyway. Brett has that same talent of being able to fall asleep faster than anyone. Maybe they should have a nap-off!
