Day 171 - Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my hubby! We started the day off by giving Daddy his gift, a new travel coffee mug with all kinds of photos of him and Owen on it. He loves it. Then the boys had a gourmet breakfast of maple and brown sugar oatmeal with honey drizzled in. Doesn't everyone eat breakfast in their skivvies like Owen? If you look closely at this photo you can see the chunk of oatmeal in mid-air that has fallen off his spoon. I love how Chris is cracking up at him.

After breakfast we all hurried up and got ready for Church. Today we attended early Church because we had plans to meet up with family afterwards for a Father's Day Brunch. After Church we headed downtown to a restaurant called Monell's. Its a really neat place. Its actually an old home in Germantown and they do family style, down home cooking that is just yummy! You share a huge table that holds about 13 people and they just bring out loads of food. We met up with Chris' brother and his family, along with his sister and her family who were also in town. The only problem I had with Monell's was it was sooo hot in there and Owen didn't want to eat or stay out of my lap. I just couldn't cool off. We were supposed to go to a circus afterwards but a quick drive by the fairgrounds proved the circus was going to be outdoors and it was just too hot to take it today. So we headed on home and had some family over for a bit. I hate that we didn't get to see Chris' sister and her family for long, but we will see them soon on the 4th! While we waited at Monell's in the little garden courtyard I got took a few shots.

I would LOVE to have a little iron bridge like this in my backyard somewhere for pics. It's so stinkin cute. After eveyone left today we all took a good long nap, followed by a visit to our friends house to let the boys play late this afternoon, and then home for dinner and now its 10:30. Whew. The time just goes by so quickly sometimes. Happy Father' Day to all the dads out there. I hope you had a great one!
