Today we celebrated Father’s Day with Greg and later his dad, Steve. We’re leaving for vacation tomorrow and I wanted Greg to have a day for himself when he didn’t have to wake up early and drive most of the day, which will definitely be happening tomorrow.
Last night Caden slept over at Grandma and Grandpa’s house and I took Shepard out of the house as soon as he woke up, so Greg was able to sleep as late as he wanted for the first time in years! When I came back with the boys we opened presents and ate pancakes and bacon for a late breakfast.
I’m so blessed to have a husband who is such a wonderful daddy. Our boys don’t know how lucky they are to have a dad who is and will always will be so involved in their lives. He’s a treasure!
We gave Greg an electric bug zapper. He’s pretty obsessed with hunting down bugs when he sees them in the house, so it seemed like a good gift. I’m afraid he might become even more obsessed, though! He’s already zapped himself and killed three flies, leaving the house smelling like it’s on fire.
My gift – a biography about Christian Bale. Maybe a little more for me than for him. 🙂 Although he has quite a self admitted man crush on Christian Bale himself.
Really, such a good daddy. I’m so proud of him. Every day I’m always amazed at how great he is with the kids. I’m so thankful that he loves them and me and wants to always spend as much time with us as possible.
Later, we went to the park for a pizza picnic with Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Sarah. Shepard liked going on the playground with Grandma.
Throwing rocks in the stream is the best part about this park.
My budding photographer in action!
People are always snapping at Shepard to get his attention when they want to take a picture of him. So now he’s constantly coming up to me with his arms up snapping, hoping I’ll take another picture. He’s so adorable.
I thought this turned out to be a really cool family picture! I love how well our outfits go together without even trying!
The Noe men. I hope Caden and Shepard turn out to be as great of fathers as their daddy and grandpa. They have excellent examples to follow.
There was a horse and carriage parade in town that we stopped at after the park. The parade was literally just a lineup of horses pulling carriages and the whole thing lasted about five minutes. Caden and Shepard had a good time waving and yelling hi to everyone.
And we ended the day with the boys’ favorite activity – wrestle drops with Daddy. I’m not sure who named it this, but it’s basically just Greg throwing the boys up and dropping them on various furniture. They love it.
It turned out to be a pretty good day. We didn’t get to give Greg as much relaxation time as we had hoped, but I think he still enjoyed himself. We love and appreciate him so much. Happy Father’s Day!
