Fathers Day 2011

Today our family went to Cracker Barrel for Fathers Day.The first picture from left to right is: our granddaughter Anne Marie, son Mike, daughter-in-law Melissa, Me and Phil. Since Phil's birthday was just a few days ago, they brought bags full of both birthday and Father's Day presents, and Anne Marie helped him open them! A red T-shirt, tennis balls, this wooden box of puzzles, and a generous gift card to Starbucks!! A little of everything he loves! And as the last picture shows, it looks like the restaurant had Anne Marie's picture on all the glasses!


"My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in."  Proverbs 3:11,12

Happy Birthday to your hubby - and many more! Looks like a lot of fun, especially with the little one there! That box of puzzles could be so much fun - or so much frustration, lol! I'm not so good at those things! Enjoy and have a great week!

Hi Ginny. That was the second thing I noticed - Anne Marie's picture on the cups. The first thing I noticed was her bright, beautiful smile! What a great time you all had!! Glad your day was nice. So glad to see you have bounced back from your illness... and are looking wonderful!

Bobbi said...

Oh- and Happy belated birthday Phil :)

Sandra said...

I was able to rest some and wanted to pop over to see you. YOUR photography is amazing, the poppys... Awesome.

I hope you all had a good father's day weekend, by the photos it sure looks like it.

I too put out stuff for the birds to make a nest with. I now see I can make some balls too and hang them in the trees.

Thank you for your continuned prayes!!
God bless and keep you all safe.

It looks like a wonderful Father's Day, Ginny!

Ours was a little sad. My husband and I miss our Dad's and both our children are now living far away and couldn't be here to celebrate with us. :(

Stacey Dawn said...

I had forgotten yesterday was Father's Day until late in the day - and then my heart kinda melted as I thought of my Dad.... miss him so.

Looks like Phil had a very Happy Father's Day - you all look beautiful!

Ann said...

Well it certainly looks like he had a great celebration for his birthday and father's day. Do you think he could pick me up a caramel macchiato when he goes to starbucks?....lol

Mary said...

I think both your guys had a wonderful Father's Day. They both look like happy souls. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

I didn't get to comment on this one. This looks like a great Father's day! The pictures are sweet and Anne Marie must of been excited with her picture on the glasses!
We spent part of the day on a hike in the mountains.
