Best Father’s Day EVAR!!!

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

I realize this is a little late, but I just figured out an easy way to upload images through this blog (which is the primary reason for Finn to start her own blog.

Well, I’m truly a blessed man. I’ve got the raddest wife who treats me like a king on Father’s Day. This morning started out rather nice with no early morning bishopric meetings, so I got to sleep in until 8am. Marylynn made me a nice big skillet breakfast of eggs, potatoes and bacon (I got to cheat on my diet today! woo hoo!) and I took Cricket to church. Buster seemed a little sick so we decided to play it safe, so Marylynn stayed home with him. This also gave her the chance to clean up for me. Awesome.

So church was good until I got called in to help with the nursery. This is a positive post, so I’m going to skip that part.

When I got home, Marylynn treated me to a nice dinner of BBQ ribs and veggies. Awesome. Then I got to open my big present – GUITAR HERO 3!! woo hoo… In case you’re not familiar with Guitar Hero, it’s a video game, played with a guitar where you hit notes and strum in order “play” real songs. And some of the songs are actually really good. The cool part is that I can download songs through the Playstation network… so we’ve been rocking out to No Doubt, Muse, Coldplay, Kaiser Cheifs, The Killers, Weezer and a bunch more around our house.

Below are the incredibly adorable pictures. Click for captions.

Then we feasted upon a GIANT double-layer cream-filled chocolate chip cookie that was decorated like a cake with frosting saying “happy fathers day”. This thing was a monstrosity!! Seriously so big, and especially coming from being on a diet… well, you know what they say about too much of a good thing…

I can’t remember what we did after we put the kids down, but we probably ended up watching a movie or something. All I know is I’ve got a rad wife who treats me great and knows to get me what I REALLY want for Fathers Day. woo hoo!
