My boys were excited to give Dad their pressies in bed this morning. There was the usual array of fabulous paintings, hand drawn cards and plenty of cuddles.
Daddy scored a proper Poker kit, oh yes he did. And yes I am kinda ashamed but amused at the same time to admit it was at the suggestion of my poker loving 5 and 7 year old.
But the pressie of the Year HAS to go to Flynn who bought his Daddy something very very special from the Fathers Day stall at his Preschool. A "headache ice hat" as he called it, or an old fashioned icepack to everyone else. Why? Because he knows he gives Dad a headache sometimes. Cute and practical to boot!
I always feel so grateful when I am able to put on a nice lunch for my husband and my Dad. I feel so blessed to have these two very special men in my life and I love any opportunity at all to celebrate them. So celebrate we most certainly did.
My mum takes the prize for the most random choice of toppings. I cant remember exactly what the combo was but I know I was screwing up my nose as I prepared it. Sorry Mum, lucky your taste in men (or at least a man) make up for your weird pizza topping choices.
I'm going through a bit of yellow loving at the moment and I'm pretty sure it is my subconscious giving winter the big one finger salute.
Dessert was a Mango, Passion fruit and Vanilla Cream Crepe Cake. It was really quick and easy to make. Just layer vanilla and sugar infused double thick cream and mango slices between crepes and squeeze a passion fruit over some mango slices on the top. How's that for a technical recipe! Whatever - it was so good it was almost evil!
Yes I went a little PicMonkey mad again making all my printables!
I hope all the wonderful Dads and Dads-to-be had an amazing Father's Day and special thoughtsand love goes out to those whose fathers are no longer with them, but live on in their hearts.
Did you do anything special for Father's Day?
Whats the most revolting pizza topping combo you've had? (My Mum would probably love it)!
