Fathers Day Part 2

Saturday was our official family day to celebrate the wonder that is me. hahaha

We followed the same routine as we did for Mothers Day: make sandwiches, take coffee and donuts to the park, set out the chairs, and wait for daughter and grandkids.

Here I am surrounded by my adoring family. Wait ...
Phew! Here they come. Grandpa is not forgotten after all.
Let me read the cards first, guys. It's the polite thing to do.
Okay. Rip away. The kids like to open others' presents.
There's a little time to play and ...

... to just hang around before we eat.

The kids did quite a bit of climbing after lunch, especially JJ who got even higher than we see in the next 4 pictures. ↓





Danica did her own things after awhile. ↓


Then, it was time for Buppa to go home for a nap and for the kids to head off to Lambsdown to see sheep shearing and to get their faces painted. Remember when it was the kids who needed the nap?

A useful and ecologically friendly present. Ideal for those evenings when one is crawling home.

What a sweet Father's Day! Love their painted little faces in the last shot. Glad they didn't get hurt climbing so high.

As always, I love to come here because I see family love....and that always warms my heart.
JJ is a brave young boy. One wants to go higher and higher when climbing a good tree.(And THAT looks like a perfect climbing tree to me!)
My Grandson loves to do the same thing....climb higher and higher. I have to caution him to not go any higher than he wants to fall. :)
Danica is graceful no matter where she is....
And the love that they have for their GrandDad is apparent.
Happy that you had a lovely Father's Day.
Sending smiles,
Jackie
