His First Father's Day

We had a great first Father's day here. Actually the whole weekend was pretty great. It started out on Friday. Brady and I wanted to see Super 8. Well, a couple weekends ago, we went and saw Pirates of the Caribbean 4 at the drive-in and took Oliver with us, (no babysitter required) and it was a pretty good time. Brady looked up the times for Super 8 and awesome enough, it was playing as a double feature with Kung Fu Panda 2! We wanted to to see both of them, so we went. Oliver did great. He fell asleep during Kung Fu Panda and slept in the back of the car through all of Super 8. And both movies were enjoyable.

Saturday was a lazy day. I went shopping for Brady's dad's day gift and took Ollie with me to give him some alone time for a couple of hours, since a stay-at-home dad deserves a break every once and a while.

Sunday was fun, we had a lazy morning and Brady and I had a delicious breakfast of sticky buns. We had the wrong pan to cook them in, but they tasted perfect. Delish!As for gifts, we gave Brady his first official Father's Day Tie! I would've love to say that Oliver helped pick it out. But he was sleeping when we were at the store. I also splurged a little and got him the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean video game. It something we can play together.

After church, we went up to Scottsdale and had dinner with the Gillman's. It was a good day and Brady said he had a great father's day.

Brady is an amazing dad. Staying home with Oliver was not something we had planned for Brady, but our circumstances has changed our plans for both of us, and although it's hard sometimes, we're surviving and Oliver is doing great. Oliver and I are so lucky to have Brady around to help us when we need him. No words can express how much I love him and appreciate all he does for our little family. He really is my best friend, I'm pretty sure he's Ollie's best friend as well.
