Happy Father's Day to all of those wonderful fathers out there, including my dad and hubby :)

On Saturday we decided to take Matt out for dinner at The Texas Roadhouse, since we were going to my dad's for a picnic and figured it would be packed if we went on Father's Day.

It was still packed, but we just walked through the mall for a bit to pass time. Matt bought Alaina this really cute pink cowgirl hat in the western store. Now she continues to ask when she will be riding Diamond. :)

We had a really nice Father's Day dinner. Matt got his steak he loves there. I'm not a big red meat eater, but I have to admit that was one tasty steak. Of course I got my chicken salad and Alaina got the kids steak tibits just like daddy haha.

This morning (Father's Day) , I got up around 7 to make German potato salad and pretzel salad for my dad's house.

When the girls got up, Alaina and I then made daddy breakfast. After breakfast Matt opened his gifts from the girls. I got him the skates for our Anniversary/Father's Day, which he got to try out friday night and said they were the best skates he has ever own. I'm so glad!

The girls got him a portable shop vac for his car and it inflates objects like rafts, which we needed the other day for the girls pool toys haha. Alaina and Bella also got him a T-shirt. He got the biggest smile when Alaina told him Happy Father's Day daddy. It came out so perfect too.


While I was getting the girls ready to leave, Matt went over to get his bronco that used to be his dad's pride and joy. Now that his dad is with the Lord, Matt takes it out every Father's Day and visits his dad's grave. I bet his dad is so proud of the father Matt has become. He takes after his dad. :)

Then it was off to my dad's house for a picnic. We all went swimming, ate good food and just enjoyed eachother's company. My dad loves having his family together. It puts him in a great mood, which puts a big smile on my face :)

It was a wonderful Father's day for two wonderful fathers. Actually, make that three, because my brother is Alaina's Godfather. :)
