father's day

Let's jump back to Father's Day, shall we?  I am promising myself to get caught up this week because... well... our big move is coming up.  And there's so much to blog about!
The kids day care (aka "school") had a Donuts for Dad the Friday morning before Father's Day.  They always do it for Mother's Day too.  We had to miss this year's mother's day one because of Andrew's cath.  I was sad to miss it when my mom reminded me that it would have been our "last" one.  All these "lasts" lately are making me a little bit sad.  But that's a post for another time...
So daddy and the kids enjoyed the "last" Donuts for Dad, and I joined them to take pictures of course!  I had to laugh because twice on the way there Andrew asked me why I was coming and if moms were supposed to go.  Ha!  Then when we pulled in and I took the first picture, he told me "MOM!  Go!"  It was so sweet.  But made me a little bit sad, too!  Ha!
Andrew couldn't wait for Father's Day.  He was so cute hiding his cards and presents for daddy in his bedroom closet.  Everytime I brought it up he'd put his finger on his lips and say "Shhhh!"
This look is so full of love.  He loves his daddy more than anything.  Coolest guy ever.
Opening his card from the kids, this is Kerigan's cheesy smile.
Daddy's present from Andrew (he made at school).
He also wrote this really neat story about daddy at school and decorated it so cute!  I thought it was so colorful and neat!
Kerigan refused to smile and look at the camera, but this is her present for daddy- so sweet.
Here's a close up.  She made it at her school too, and they framed it and everything.
That night we grilled out and played a killer game of Headbandz!  Andrew laughed like this pretty much the whole time.  This is such a fun game!  He was laughing every time daddy asked a question.  For example, daddy's picture is a sandwich, and he has to ask "yes-no" questions to try to figure out what it is.  So when he'd ask "Is it an animal" or something like that, Andrew just could not stop giggling.  It was so cute.
He's stumped!  Ha!
I made these amazing baked smores, another Pinterest find.  Oh how I love Pinterest (even though it completely overwhelms me!)

The next night Papa joined us to celebrate again and we had a bonfire and real smores!  It's a toss up which ones were better!  
The kids gave Papa their card and gift card to Panera, since he always takes Ga Ga there!
The kids also think Papa is pretty special.  Kerigan always asks for him when Ga Ga comes over if he's not with her.
I looked over and my daughter is into the smores supplies!  Big surprise!  Ha!
We always joke because Andrew loves to roast the marshmallows but he just sets them on fire and gives them to daddy and then eats them straight out of the bag.  Craig always gets too full of marshmallows because he eats all our mistakes!  I told him it's his fault he likes them burnt!
Her shirt couldn't be more UNtrue!  She's no angel... ha!  Don't let her fool you!
All we know is, we were so lucky to get the best daddy there is.  He does so much for us and works so hard to make all of us happy all the time, and we are not always an easy bunch!  Ha!  The kids just adore him and so do I.  Thanks for everything you do for us, daddy!  We can't wait to embark on this new journey you are taking us on!
