Dads are sometimes hard for birthdays, aren't they? I try and come up with something different most years, which is really tough when I am suffering from pregnancy brain! We took a trip over the weekend to great grandma's house and the beach (post soon) and called it his "birthday outing", but the real day still needs some fanfare! Here's what we came up with:
Service Presents: The kids all did a "Dad Chore" for him as a surprise!
Christian mowed the lawn while the other kids raked up and bagged the grass.
Jonah and Indy swept out his shop.
Bekah and Briella picked tomatoes from the garden.
Kamberlynne made the cake part of the traditional "pineapple upside down cake".
Then we printed out all the pictures, taped them into homemade cards, and met dad for lunch!
He was really surprised and happy about his service presents!
The fun continued later that night...dad's favorite dinner...hotdogs on the grill and fritos! YUM!
Then candles, cake and ice cream!
We sure love you, Dad! We hope you had a great day, and all your wishes come true!
