A very happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there and especially to Steve, truly the most amazing man I know. Maybe I'm just turning sappy, what with a beautiful wedding attended this weekend and our 10th anniversary just around the corner, but I've simply been astounded by the amazing man God gave me to truly be my better half. Being a stay-at-home-dad to two crazy boys is a job and a half, and God has equipped Steve (and continues to equip him!) in astounding ways to be an amazing dad. And he just gets better with each passing year! That's a good thing, since things are definitely going to get more complicated before they get easier and we figure out how to be a party of five :)
Our Father's Day celebration was blissfully uncomplicated - Ikea cinnamon buns in the morning, a few tokens of our affection (money for the flat screen TV fund), and Ben's gift of Indiana Jones swings. Don't ask me why, but Ben has been convinced for weeks that the perfect Father's Day gift for Steve would be Indiana Jones swings. He was still adamant about Saturday, so we trekked up to Ikea to buy swings and a rope ladder for Daddy. I figure that with Ben's birthday party coming up, they're sure to come in handy.
After church and Sunday naps, we hit the theater for Kung Fu Panda which was super-fun. We had planned to go out to dinner, but after ripping through two large popcorns during the movie, we had no appetite left and instead came home for a couple more hours of video games before bed. Yep, a fantastic Father's Day.
