On the day when Ryan gets to do absolutely anything he wants, he chooses to finish building our outdoor shower! Haha!
That says a lot about our guy. He doesn’t like to make a big deal out of holidays, especially Father’s Day but I wanted to make sure it was still a nice day for him. He truly truly is an amazing dad and I wanted to take the day to recognize him – even if he didn’t want a big production. We started the day with homemade cards and fresh croissants from our favorite French bakery.
I’m pretty sure all Ryan wanted for Fathers Day was to take a big nap (wish granted!) but Emmett also presented his dad with the typical “dad gifts” – new socks and underwear! Per Ryan’s request, we watched the movie ET and then we took Emmett to the park. I made these awesome crockpot Italian Beef Sandwiches (which got a big thumbs up from the dad) and finished our day with Ryan’s favorite dessert, key lime pie. For someone who didn’t really care about celebrating Father’s Day, I think he had a pretty enjoyable day!
My heart explodes when I see Ryan with Emmett. He’s goofy, affectionate, present and tough when he needs to be. When Emmett’s antics crack Ryan up or when Emmett finally points to where his belly is, or when he makes a really good shot with the basketball, I can see the pride Ryan feels for him. I can’t wait to see him with our two boys. I think I’m going to burst with happiness.
Also – a quick Father’s Day shoutout to my own dad!
He is truly one of the most supportive, optimistic people I know! Dad, you’ve always put your kids needs before you’re own! Thank you for everything you’ve done for us! Sorry we tease you so much 😉 It’s just because we love you!
