Here’s a rundown of Daddy’s first Father’s Day.
7:00 am – Andrew and Mommy wake Dad up to present him with his gifts…a shirt, Simpsons pajama pants, a little frame with pictures of Andrew in it, and a musical Star Wars Card. Cool stuff.
10:00 am – Daddy is allowed to sleep in a little bit today.
10:30 am – Mommy, Daddy, and Andrew are off to run a few errands, and pick up some groceries for cooking out later.
12:30 pm – Everyone’s back home, and it’s time to feed Andrew, and have him take a good nap so he’s not too cranky for the grandparents when they get here later on.
1:30 pm - Daddy mows the yard. And starts to get set up for the BBQ
3:00 pm – Andrew is well rested, so Mommy and Daddy take him to the pool for a little aquatic fun. He loves the lazy river.
5:30 pm – Back home, and showered up, Andrew takes another nap (the pool is quite tiring). Mommy and Daddy prepare Kabobs, baked beans, guacamole dip, and baked potatoes for the BBQ.
6:30 pm- Grandpa and Grandma Hiaring arrive, and everyone hangs out for a while before a massive amount of food is finally ready for the grill. 12 kabobs, loaded with London broil, mushrooms, green and red peppers, onions and tomatoes. It’s way to much food for everyone to eat, but it’s fun to prepare and cook.
7:30 pm – Chow time. Andrew is playing outside in his exersaucer while everyone eats. Greta (Grandpa and Grandma Hiaring’s dog) is allowed to run free in the backyard after we close the gate to the fence, but she’s more interested in hanging out by the table to catch any errant scraps that might fall off.
8:30 pm – Back inside to take care of Andrew, and get him ready for bed. Grandma and Grandpa Hiaring leave to go over to Courtney and Craig’s place, where they are staying.
9:00 pm – Grandpa Carmichael arrives (we knew he wouldn’t get in until later). We heat up a plate for him, and put Andrew to bed.
11:30 pm – After hanging out on the patio for a while, everyone heads inside and hunkers down for the night.
All in all, it was as perfect of a Father’s Day as Daddy could have hoped for.
New pictures and video will be up soon.
