Happy Father's Day!

We're having a happy day around here! Our day started with present time (Snick couldn't wait!). We gave Daddy a framed copy of the collage above, which I think went over well. After church, we had a yummy dinner (pulled pork sandwiches with all the fixin's). That's more of a my dad meal, but it seemed appropriate for Father's Day. Luckily, the Dad in our house likes it too!

We followed up with peach and blueberry cobbler and homemade coconut milk ice cream, in honor of our lactose-intolerant Dad. I'll have to work on that one - I wasn't much of a fan, although he seemed to like it!

We have the best Dad and husband! He really is all those things above, and we love him so much! A more devoted and dedicated father would be impossible to find! We're a lucky bunch to have him.

On a more lighthearted and somewhat related note, Snick and I found this video this week while we were doing preschool. The lessons right now are all about baby animals, but sometimes the lesson leaves a little to be desired in the way of actual information about those animals. So we spend a little time online afterwards looking up some info. One day this week, we talked about baby seahorses, and the role their daddies play. Did you know that seahorse daddies carry the babies, and give birth to them? We found this video quite astounding.

Maybe we could learn a thing or two from the seahorses? Most of the time, I don't mind all this pregnancy and birth stuff, but maybe we could switch off every once in a while? ;)
