He is AMAZING!
Every year his birthday and fathers day are LUMPED together. And EVERY YEAR I try to do nice things for him to enjoy these SEPARATE yet VERY IMPORTANT days...
THIS YEAR... I kinda sucked...
Not on purpose, but I did.
I cleaned the ENTIRE house. From dusting the air vents to hand mopping the wood floor. I thought that was a nice present... wife cleaning house.
Matt wanted to do a "Guys Boat Trip" with some of his friends so I let him. He went early Saturday morning and they got home around one. He said they had a blast! And I felt that was a nice present... wife allowing a boys trip after being at home with the kids all week (with one sick kid I might add)
That night he wanted to rent a movie. I let him pick the flick... Out on a Limb... and I watched it with him. I thought that was a nice present too.
Father's Day Morning... I get the kids up and bring them to Daddy with THIS...
At church I made sure the kids gave daddy loves and told him Happy Father's Day a few times. Landon even screamed it to him during Sacrament... :) And we made Sugar Daddy gifts in Y.W. (post to come soon) for our Dads-Husbands and I gave one to him... nice huh?
I let him watch whatever he wanted and TRIED to keep the kids out of his hair. I also TRIED to cook him a nice dinner. He has said he wanted Tri Tip... so I headed to the store last week LATE one night with a child (because the other one was sick and a handful) to get stuff to make specially for him. I purchased Tri Tip... but when I got home I realized it was PORK tri tip... did I mention it was LATE?? I figured NO PROBLEM... I will find a recipe... and I did. And it was GREAT... but only after putting it back on the grill 3 times. (YES THREE TIMES) to cook it right... I did mention to him this was my first BBQ experience... FAIL #2. At least it WAS good when it WAS finally done... I also made him one of his favorite desserts... Eclair Cake. Which he did love and it was good!
I made sure the kids let Daddy know how much they loved them before bed and we called it a day... overall GOOD DAY!
MONDAY (Matt's Birthday)
We just hung around the house in the morning. His work gave him this day off; SWEET... so we planned to go to the Water Park with the kids. (his idea) We relaxed in bed, got ready to go and had a BLAST at the park! We played at every child attraction available, then fished, then played in the water more. I also got free tickets (long story) to come back another day, so that was a score. We went home and got cleaned up while waiting for the SONY people to bring our new TV. (what a sweet birthday present right?) And when they brought it; it was bent so I think he was a little sad that our new TV was not here... on his birthday.
We signed up for a Gym membership because we BOTH need and wanted it; then we rented another movie. He picked it again Chronicle and I watched it with him, and popped popcorn... good wife huh? Well I failed to mention he made his own dinner. The kids wanted pancakes and he just went ahead and made them while I was calming Landon down... FAIL #3.
Despite my Fails I hope Matt had an overall Good Weekend.
We just bought a ton of stuff for the house and for us so I told him we need to be more careful about spending money; so I thought all the nice "gifts above" were enough for Fathers Day... He always gets Fresno State Football Season Tickets for his Birthday... so I thought that was enough. I guess he was expecting something a little more... I guess we will have to see.
Happy Birthday to my HUBS!
AND Happy Fathers Day to him too!
I know one thing for sure... I am a lucky girl to have this guy around!
