Happy Father's Day!

This past Sunday was Father's Day and we three girls set out to make the day extra special for Steve. Of course, we want him to ALWAYS feel special and loved, but this holiday is always a good excuse to put in some extra love and attention!

The Father's Day festivities officially kicked off Saturday night, when we were able to take advantage of a Parents' Night Out and have a much-needed date night. We ended up at a local brewery restaurant, where we sampled a flight of their beers and some of their new summer cocktails. It was so relaxing to kick back together over a fantastic dinner and we greatly enjoyed our adult conversation. This was also the first Parents' Night Out that we weren't called early to come pick up our cranky baby, so to have FOUR hours of uninterrupted time together was heavenly!

Sunday morning we were all treated to a bit of a sleep-in, thanks to our late night, and Anna doled out all of Steve's presents. He dresses up very handsomely for work and he prefers the french cuffs on his shirts, which means he wears cuff links. Steve has a good little collection of cuff links and we just about doubled his stash this morning! We picked out cuff links that were relevant to the girls and Daddy, so he got some airplanes, elephants, seahorses, guitars, and...best of all...Mickey Mouse bar links! Maddie even gnawed on his card a little bit, just for authenticity's sake.

These were the only pictures I took of Father's Day celebrations...Steve isn't a big picture fan!

We followed presents with a gourmet breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns. 

We then had to pack up and run over to our nephew Daniel's birthday party (you'd better believe there are pictures coming for that!!). On the way over to the other side of Atlanta, we stopped at Steve's favorite liquor store and let him restock his bar.

Father's Day ended with a pizza party - we were pretty tired from the day so we picked up Mellow Mushroom pizza (Steve's favorite) and wrapped up the day chilling on the couch.

Anna took these two pictures, aren't they cute??

Steve, we love you so much and we are so thankful for everything that you do for our family. Happy Father's Day!
