Meet the Sullivans: Father's Day Weekend

Father's Day Weekend

What a long and fun filled weekend we had! I'm really glad we don't have too much happening this week because I think we all need to recover from our busy weekend. So here's how it all went down...

The weekend begins on Friday, right? I think so!

On Friday morning we drove out to Pleasanton to meet up with a bunch of our friends to play. A few of my best friends from high school and I all have (first born) boys really close in age -- isn't it neat how that worked out? Only two of us live close to each other and the other two are in NJ and Southern California, so the last time we got the boys together was over a year ago! (We took the exact same picture last year with the boys in the same exact spots!)

The boys are in birth order from left to right. The first two, Noah and Dean, are just days apart, then there is a 8 month gap before Owen was born and then Nico was born few weeks later. The other three boys also each have a little sister. I think it will be totally insane if we have a girl when we have a second child someday. I'm so glad we can all share in motherhood and go through all the same things together. It's also really nice always having a close friend (or 3!) to call when you need advice.

On Saturday my sister and I went to the Giants game! We had awesome seats in the Club Level! It's too bad the Giants lost -- they were so close to having that win. Keith was there too, but in a different section with some friends celebrating a Bachelor Party.

The highlight of the weekend was when Sunday rolled around and we got to celebrate our favorite man! We tried our hardest to be quiet and let Keith sleep in for a while. When he came downstairs I put together a family favorite, Mickey Mouse shaped Pumpkin Spice waffles. No secret recipe here, just a box of Trader Joe's Pumpkin Waffle & Pancake mix I had stashed away for such an occasion.

After breakfast Keith opened his gifts from Owen. Owen knew exactly what to give his Daddy for Father's Day: a big bottle of Game of Thrones Fire & Blood Red Ale, a Sports Authority gift card, Keith's favorite candy and a key chain with his picture on it!

Owen and I work hard on getting that key chain juuuust right for Daddy! I'm hoping to share how we made it tomorrow.

We had most of the day free, so we asked Keith how he wanted to spend the day. He's pretty much the most easy going, selfless guy we know, so I wasn't surprised when he said he just wanted to take Owen to the toy store to pick out a new toy and play at the park. We decided later that the weather was too cool and windy to play at the park, so we picked up Owen his cool new dinosaur toy instead. I'm not sure who is enjoying it more, Owen or Keith!

Owen and I are so lucky to have Keith! He's an amazing, fun, warm and loving father and a thoughtful and sweet husband. We couldn't ask for more!
