Nathan is one of the best dads I know. Our boys are super lucky to claim him as theirs. Today we started out by showering Nathan with gifts. I had let each of the boys pick out a shirt for their Daddy along with a gift card to a restaurant. Elias went with a green stripe, Simon went with a nice plaid, and Caleb got a plain black. Each of the boys also made Nathan a card.
After a nice morning together, we went to church. Somehow, we made it with plenty of time to spare. No rushing out the door. It was nice to finally have a relaxed time! I took a picture of my boys at the coffee hour after the service. I took about fifteen pictures. Someone is always moving or making a silly face or closing their eyes. It’s difficult to get everyone looking good. This was the best I could get:
After church we came home for some rest. When Caleb woke up from his nap, we packed our bags for our best Fathers Day tradition: swimming! Nathan chose his own fathers day tradition when Elias was a baby. We’ve gone swimming on Fathers day every year since! We headed to the Conestoga pool. Again, I attempted a fun picture of the boys with their dad. Here is the before swimming pic:
After dinner we went out to Red Robin, and then came home. Elias promptly attempted to confince Nathan that playing Minecraft together was a good idea for Fathers Day. Nathan rewarded him for his rhetorical skills and the older boys played together for a bit.
What a fun day!
