Hugs for dad!
I want to wish the happiest of Father's Days to J. The day might not have gone exactly as planned but I know for sure that these kids love you so much. 

Father's Day is more like Father's Day Weekend around here. All day Saturday J was autocrossing. We watched him in the morning and again for a bit in the afternoon. In the middle of the day we went to see my parents and wish my dad a Happy Father's Day. 

Saturday evening, J decided on a whim to camp out in the backyard with the kids. It's something we've talked about doing but it hadn't happened yet. The kids were so excited that they wanted to get out to the tent right after dinner. J and I bought this tent years ago and it's not big enough for the 4 of us so the plan was or J to camp out with the kids.

J going in!
It was a nice idea and it kinda worked. Little K lasted until 8:30pm and then came in crying. I guess she wanted me in the tent as well. Little J fell asleep and spent the whole night out there. Baby steps.

J's card.
So J woke up on Father's Day in a tent with Little J. And it was early! He convinced the boy to sleep a little longer thankfully, but no breakfast in bed for this dad. We did breakfast and gifts. The kids gave J a card and some things Little J made in school, a coffee grinder and new towels. And then it was off to the race! The kids ran their race, but more about that later.

  1. Your family is so adorable. I wish I could spend the night on a tent with my family in our backyard. We should try that sometime. Thank you for sharing. Happy Father's Day to J!

    1. Thanks Camille! Yes, try backyard camping - it's free and a good trial before heading out somewhere.
