Now that it's almost September I guess I might as well get our photos from Father's Day weekend up.
We celebrated in Port Aransas, but before Gary could come down to join us we spent a few days there with my friend Lauren and her kids, Ty and Reese.
We pretty much lived in the pool for those few days.
Once Daddy arrived it got a little busier. First we spent an hour or two fishing on the pier where Miller caught 2 fish and Emmylou was cruelly, unjustly denied.
We also paid a visit to their favorite souvenir shop where they picked out (what else?) a stuffed dolphin and mermaid holding lollipops (double score!).
They also had a Spiderman ride in there and Miller and Spidey became fast BFFs.
One night we fried up some catfish we caught at HEB along with some hush puppies and okra. Yay for brown food!
The next night Miller professed his love for broccoli and ate an entire plate. Who is this child?
E & M requested breakfast in bed for Father's Day. Role-reversal, I guess, but Gary didn't seem to mind.
Then they gave him his gifts, of which they had already spilled the beans, of course. Emmylou made him a "Shrink Ray 1000" inspired by Gary's weekly threats to shrink Miller and her forever and put them in his belly, and by the weapon of choice in the movie Despicable Me. Here he is feigning surprise:
The gift from Miller was at least a tiny bit of a surprise. The kids had told Gary that he was getting a "cup with Miller's picture," but didn't tell him which picture. Remember Miller's horrible school photos? Gary, especially, thought they were hilarious, so I got one of those (#70, if you clicked on the link) put on a mug for him. Success!
The kids and I also made some cupcakes that looked like BBQ grills for him and for Pawpaw.
Our kids are so lucky to have the best daddy in the world!
