How unfair is it that because I went into labor on Mother's Day 2010, I didn't actually have Pearyn until the next day and therefore didn't get to celebrate said Mother's Day. So now Ryan will always have one extra Father's Day than me!
We started the day of with some delicious buttefly, duck and tulip shaped pancakes (hey, that's what you get when you're a father to a little girl). They passed the Pearyn test as she devoured the three she had on her plate and even ate a leftover one later for brunch.
We spent the rest of the day with my parents, where we made an even more incredible crock pot vegan pot roast (see next post for recipe) and watched Pearyn run around like a crazy person. This little girl seriously loves her some outside time - rain or shine. It makes it pretty easy to participate in our Family Sunday Funday anthem when our darling daughter absolutely beams from playing outside!
She's already amazing mommy and daddy with her animal-loving ways.
She plays fetch with Karma, tries to sit with my parent's cat Buddy and hands off bones to their three great danes, Walter, Kelsey and Bailey. In fact, Pearyn actually climbed into Walter's cage with him yesterday (which is basically the size of a twin bed) and shut the door so they could hang out one-on-one. Note: we tried to snap a photo of this, but Pear refused to cooperate.
All and all I'd say it was a pretty successful Father's Day (again). The best part? No animals had to suffer in the making of our super awesome Father's Day feast AND we have delicious leftovers!
Sounds like a good day to me!
