How we spent his Father's Day
It started off like most Sunday mornings, off to church, and then back home. Patrick had to work a little. So he headed there while the dumplings and I came back home. While anxiously awaiting their Baba's return, they put some last minute finishing touches on their watercolor projects. We used our Derwent watercolor pencils. Madeline declared wearing chapstick was a prerequisite.
See that chapstick in her hand along with the watercolor pencil?
At one point, apparently the room was chilly.
Since Baba still wasn't home, we thought we'd make him some cookies...only they turned out horribly, so we won't go there. Suffice it to say, he'll be getting some brownies today after I pick up the rest of the necessary ingredients from the store.
Baba finally got home from work and opened his present- a 16x20 gallery wrap (from Mpix) of his three biggest fans.
Then it was time for some swimming and hanging out with the dumplings.
After cooling off, we headed down the block for a little batting practice.
Even Madeline insisted she have a turn. Yes, flip flops are an appropriate part of her baseball attire, so she says.
Then we headed over to the field.
Daddy stole some kisses.
Madeline was pretty happy as long as she had a drink.
Caleb thoroughly enjoyed catching fly balls from Daddy in the outfield.
Madeline insisted she also get a turn at batting.
And she even hit the ball- if you look toward the right of her face, you can see the ball in the air. You go, girl!
Then it was time to pack it up and head back home.
Nothing fancy. Just a nice, relaxing day chilling with the dumplings and enjoying the outdoors.
We love you so much, Baba!
Happy Father's Day!!!!
