What Did You Do For Fathers Day?

This Father's Day, our family decided to break tradition and celebrate in a very unique way.

Although Dave does travel quite frequently, we spend a lot of time with our girls. Many days and hours are spent at the park, splash pad, doing crafts, reading, playing sports, swimming, riding bikes, playing games, etc. I decided that instead of spending Sunday together as a family, I would get a babysitter and hang out together as a couple - something we rarely get to do. Plus, I kind of felt like Dave just needed a break. A chance to simply get away and not have to worry about anything.

It is a good thing I preplanned this because when I asked him what he wanted to do for Father's Day, his reply was "clean the garage." And he was serious. So like I mentioned, I hired a babysitter, jumped in the car and headed out of town to the mountains to do a little zip lining.

Feeling a bit nervous at first, I quickly got into it and had a really good time. I think Dave did as well. It was nice to be out in nature, together, doing and saying nothing that had anything to do with children. Although we love our children dearly, we love each other as well.

It was great experience and I would highly recommend the adventure to everyone. If you get a chance to run away to the mountains for an afternoon, zip lining is where its at.

Thank you David for all you do and all you provide for our family. We love you very much and hopefully you were able to enjoy a very short afternoon of leisure and relaxation - something you deserve more of!!

I'm so jealous that you got to go, but so glad that you did. It looks like fun! Glad that you had a good time. Maybe next summer, if there is no baby in tow we will take the plunge.
