one well loved Daddy!

The girls were really excited about father's day. Kara brought home a mug she made for him on her last day of school. So he has had that for a week, but there were still lots of fun surprises saved for yesterday. Kara woke me up at 6:30, wanting to make breakfast for daddy. I told her to go back to bed for a while, but she was so worried that he'd wake up before her. So she sat on the couch watching cartoons and ensuring that he stayed in bed. Once I heard him moving around upstairs, we started cooking, and Kara was very concerned that we make the right thing. She was very happy that he liked his breakfast.
The girls decided they would like to take him miniature golfing, and luckily, the weather cooperated with the plan. So after lunch at his choice of restaurant, we headed over to the putting zoo. It was very busy and crowded, but still lots of fun. Evie was a handful. She just wanted to be included in the fun.

I knew Ben would want the weekend to enjoy his father's day gift, so we wrapped it on friday and hid it for him to find when he got home from work that night. Kara wanted to make him a special treat, so we made the rice krispie treats he's been requesting for a week or two. The girls took FOREVER to pick out this card for him at the store. They both liked different ones, but eventually came to agree on this bright one.

He has been playing his new 3DS game tons this weekend. We gave him the new street fighter.

Kiersten was a little jealous of the mug Kara made at school, and wanted to make him something too. I took her to the store with the intention of finding something easy for her to make. The second the girls saw these shirts, they really wanted to make one for him. It was a little messy, (especially Evie's part) but it turned out pretty cute and he really liked it.

I hope everyone else had a super fun father's day weekend too!
