Just a darling little montage of Joe as a dad of 2. It makes me tear up.
Father’s Day was mostly wonderful. We hung out at the house in the morning enjoying the new hammock chair Cam got for Joe as a Father’s Day gift (isn’t he thoughtful!?).
Then, we packed up picnic foods and drinks and headed down to Mission Bay to join the Stadlers on their boat. This was such a treat for all of us. The weather was perfect and any day on the Stadler’s boat is a special and memorable day.
The last time Cam rode on the Stadler’s boat, he fell asleep almost immediately. This time he was obsessed with the cabin and climbing in and out of it while munching on cheese and grapes. I have to say, this kid lives a really tough life.
Brett’s mom was a SAINT and kept an eye on the kids while the rest of us enjoyed the views.
Also notable, it was Demi’s first boat ride. I can’t say she loved it. But I can’t say she didn’t like it either. I think she was a little disoriented with all the wind and bobbing around. As always she was a good sport.
After docking, we took turns paddling around the bay in their kayaks. The fathers and their first-borns…
Then Shara and I took a jaunt around the bay. Apparently kayaks have cupholders, so I put mine to use.
After our boating adventures we met Poppy, Inny, Uncoco and Nicole at Modern Times Brewery…
… this is where things took a turn for the worse. Cam fell asleep in the car and after we woke him up, it was nearly impossible to get him out of his funk. He was an 11 on a 10-point grumpy scale. We pressed on and had a lightning round of BBQ with the folks before heading home and prepping for the work week.
All-in-all, it was a lovely day celebrating fathers.
In lieu of a Father’s Day card, I thought it would be neat to interview Cam and Demi and mash it up together into a Father’s Day video. Cam was happy to participate and so was Demi. (Please excuse the apple-eating… I knew Cam would answer more questions if he had a distraction).
Your kids clearly love you very very much! Happy Father’s Day Joe, may it be a styrofoam-smashing good time!
