His Day

Thursday, June 21, 2012 |
I thought I'd better get last weekend's festivities up before another weekend arrives ...

This year my husband enjoyed a two part Father's Day. On Mother's Day {yes, I loaned him my big day} we traveled to New York for a Yankees game. 

This isn't necessarily my idea of a great time but I will admit that it turned out to be a fun filled {hot} day. A good friend's husband orchestrated a bus trip for his employees and invited a few of their friends along. Since Kevin likes the Yankees, has wanted to go to a game and I'm a fabulous wife {insert hearty laugh} we happily boarded the bus. Thankfully this bus wasn't yellow and I wasn't in charge of everyone on it! :)

We were able to arrive well before any other fans and enjoyed a ballpark lunch in a private party setting. One of my dreams came true ... endless supply of popcorn! Yum :)
If only I could convince Kevin we need a popcorn machine for our home!

The happy guy before the game!

We had good seats but the afternoon sun baked us! I ended up with a lovely sunburned nose ~ my students thought it was funny. 

I caught a little grief from our friends because I didn't have any Yankee gear ~ sorry, I'm not a billboard. 

On Sunday { Father's Day} we enjoyed breakfast at The Shack after church, we worked in the yard and I made Kevin a special dinner.

We enjoyed asian chopped salad, bacon rubbed chicken skewers with a thai marinade, and manly chocolate cupcakes with kahlua frosting. June 2012 024 June 2012 028 

Then it was time for gifts. Bentley's motto is *better to help open a gift than just let it sit there.* Much to his chagrin, he wasn't allowed to rip the paper off.

 The mustache glasses are an on going joke in our home. Kevin grew a mustache last year while on the submarine. He came home and ~surprised me~ with his new addition. For several weeks he continued to annoy me with the furry patch on his lip. After my threatening to shave it off in the middle of the night, he finally relented and shaved. 

The kit is from William Sonoma ~ I'll let you know how it turns out.

 Ending a very nice day with chocolate!

How fun! That meal looks delish!!! I don't think your mustache glass photo made it?
Just the picture of the pooch trying to figure out the gifts. Buddy loves gifts too! ;)

Matt grew a mustache one cruise when I met him in singapore and it was hideous! Something to do I guess. Also one year for father's day at the boys school, Matt was out again. I wore a mustache to school and my kids got a big kick out of it. Most dads weren't so impressed. We do what we have to do! Glad you had great holidays!

Sounds like a very fun Fathers Day. The last time I was in Yankee Stadium I was carrying an oriental rug in a big plastic bag, it was 100 degrees and we were chased by a man in a leg cast! Doesn't THAT sound like a story!!!! Funny and true!
I love the beer making kit!
