The kids and I had a wonderful time celebrating Steve on Father’s Day. I found a few cute ideas for father’s day gifts on Pinterest and decided to give them a try. Let me just say that the crafty lady who did our first DIY project made it sound like it would take 2-3 hours…it took me (with the help of our wonderful nanny Lisa) a week to finish it!! We had to stain the wood, paint it, and get the kids handprints on scrapbook paper before sealing it (I thought I was going to lose my mind in the process, but it turned out to be very cute).
DIY project #1:
The kids presented it to Steve and he loved it!
We had a “photo shoot” for a DAD frame – Ty and MJ actually smiled for the camera and held the letters up perfectly (after about 50 tries)! Catelin snoozed in her chair for the picture.
MJ made daddy a special tie at summer camp and Steve wore it the whole morning (MJ was so proud).
The kids even made daddy a photo card:
We spent the rest of this special day hanging out by the pool and enjoying family time.
We were able to celebrate our amazing fathers earlier in the week – we had dinner with John before he left for Colorado and spent all day Saturday with my family while Ann was in town.
