Fathers day

Creating cards and wrapping gifts lots of little pleasures in the lead up to today that special Father's Day.

I new today would be a hard day being the first fathers day without my brother in law. Fathers day. Like all special occasions is steeped with tradition and in ours the men rotate between turns of choosing our outing or activity, this year it would have been Al's turn, Dad and Brian chatted and organized a neutral ground one where we hadn't been with Al - Newtown shopping and lunch at our favourite restaurant Twelve.

Unfortunately for Brian our Kids are both in the workforce and had to work, so we started the day at a very early 6 something, with a cuppa and gifts with the kids before Dylan started work at 7am. Scrambled Eggs which I cooked followed with a Coffee with Bianca, before she started work at 9am. So we were up and off we headed just the two of us into Newtown. Stopping at some of the antique, vintage bric-a-brac shops of course some goodies had to come home our finds ....
 Another Cast Iron flower frog, a round one this time and it was only $8 and a bread knife with a guide, it also was $8, we were happy with our purchases.

 We had a wonderful lunch, and ate up a storm, of course the fathers photographed cheering!!!

 Our meals, favourite on the table was the steak sandwich on sour dough - YUM, followed closely by the spicy chicken burger, Pumpkin and Spinach salad and the Caesar salad with chicken. 

 Oh my the sweets - yes look at that window......Brian did have a slice of that Lemon Meringue look at its height!!!

 We finished with some cruising it was such a wonderful day, not to enjoy the sights we drive by all the time.

 and we finished the day with a nice cold beverage, and the company of friends in our front yard just catching the last of the suns rays....what a glorious day.

How did you enjoy your fathers day????
