Father's day this year was the next day after our anniversary, and it looks like next year they share the same date! Maybe I can consolidate those two next year hahah.
I can't remember the last time I spent Father's day with my dad. My parents divorced when I was about 9 or 10 and my memory fails for holidays at that time of my life. I reconnected with my dad after I got married, and since then he has lived too far to spend the day with him. I call and send gifts to celebrate the day. We had a fun conversation this past Sunday and it sounded like he was having a pleasant day. I threw some pictures of him when he was a young lad. I love the baby one in the carriage, it must be 1938 or so. As a youngster he left Canada and joined the US Army and was stationed in Panama, where he met my mom. After serving they moved back to the US and my dad worked for the Forest Service until retiring. He loves nature, art, and consumes books like no one I know! Love you pops :)
To celebrate David for Father's Day, we went to brunch at Bull Valley Road House in Port Costa. I've blogged about this place before. Really cool eclectic decor and great food. Gifts were opened when we got home, and he relaxed watching "Copa America" most of the day with Cyrous. Later we had a casual dinner out.
Most of the weekend was spent lounging since Caitlin and Cyrous were gearing up for their month long belated honeymoon trip. The left yesterday and arrived safe and sound, as evidenced by some photos and video Nicole sent me. I hope they have a great time. They will spend some time with Nicole and then head up to Scotland for some fun adventures! I sure wish I was there now to avoid this heat we are having! It's only two days into summer, and I'm counting down the days until fall. Why is it that when you tell people you don't like summer, they are so shocked? I won't go on about it, since I think by now everyone knows how I feel, but seriously, can you just wake me up when it's October?
As for shop business, I have an almost done little sun suit that should be finished this week. Stay tuned. Part 3 of celebrations tomorrow!
