Father’s Day @ Gibsons
When you ask my dad what he wants for any given holiday - “time with my family” is his stock answer
The thing is though, he really means it.
Being with his crew is my dad’s very favorite thing in the world
(The feeling is mutual)
…So this year for father’s day, that is exactly what we gave him
(in addition to some more tangible gifts like an Evil Kenevil Bike Helmet and Neon Orange Jelly Watch)!
Yesterday afternoon, the whole gang gathered at our favorite family spot.
All 8 of us (9 if you count H2) ((well, 10 considering our honorary sibling, Mike D, joined us for dessert)
squeezed around our regular table,
the round one right off the patio,
and spent the next 3 hours doing what we do best - just being together!
Cocktails (for everyone other than the pregnant chick and the 14 month old), Steaks, French Fries, Turtle Pie
lots of stories
and even more laughs.
Over the years, my dad shared so much with us:
Love, strength, advice, adventures, support, determination, wisdom
and many great meals together
But the thing we appreciate most is how he (along with my mama, of course) has created this close-knit team….
We adore you papa.
Mad Love & Family Bonds!
Note: Huge thank you to the stranger who offered to snap this pic….
But I really wish he would not have cropped out Hazel.
She was right there, smiling pretty in her stroller - I guess you are going to have to just use your imagination.
