Adam's First Father's Day

We decided for Mother's Day and Father's Day we are not doing gifts for each other. After all... that's our responsibility to honor our parents/grandparents on their day and for Caroline to eventually honor us when she can understand. Instead, we decided to put some time into a handmade card or gift and making sure that whomever is being honored gets the whole weekend to do what they want to do.... eating out, activities, sleeping in, etc.

We did this for Mother's Day and I loved it! We went to Crystal Bridges for the day, ate out, I slept in... the whole nine.

So then when it was Adam's turn for Father's Day, naturally, I PACKED UP HIS CHILD AND WE BOTH LEFT TOWN.  My mom asked me back in March or so to go with her to Los Angela's to watch my cousin graduate from UCLA.  Adam was unable to go because of work, but I committed and decided to take C so that we could both meet our new cousins. I totally didn't even realize that it was Father's Day weekend and neither did A. We were both bummed at first, but we both agree that it's more important to celebrate than make a big deal on the actual DATE. So, Adam's parents came up and he and his dad played golf and the three of us celebrated this past weekend. It was perfect. Nothing over the top or interesting to anyone else probably...
We saw a movie, he slept in, we grilled out, went to the Farmer's Market, worked around the house, and went to the driving range.

He picked out C's outfit for church on Sunday
C LOVES to be outside. Adam hit balls for over an hour and she was just as content as could be
Adam is such a great dad. He is patient and kind. I pray that Caroline marries someone exactly like him one day. He adores her and she LOVES her daddy!
