Father's Day 2013

Yesterday was Father's Day and what a special day Jimmy had! I decided to fix him a light breakfast treat as we were going to meet the kids for dinner.

I like to use Oregon's Harry and David's scone mix when I'm in a hurry. I do drop type scones and they always turn out wonderful. It's strawberry time in Oregon, so I chose this strawberry mix. Jimmy loves strawberries.

I mixed fresh Hood berries with the local raspberries that are just appearing on the market. They aren't real sweet yet, but still yummy!

We collect sterling strawberry forks and it's just fun to use them. They make you enjoy each berry, one at a time. These are two that I found on my Tasha trip back east about seven years ago.

After a nice breakfast, Jim wanted to go back to the downtown library to view Allen Say's work before the exhibit is taken down this week. It was nice to look at the original art work without a crowd.

Then we had to head to the Wong King Seafood Restaurant to meet the kids for the Father's Day dinner. Angie is looking good. Baby Otto is only about 5 weeks away???? We all picked dates last night for the baby's birth! Funny. Chris was also celebrating his Father's Day! He always makes everything sooo fun! Don't they look cute?

Our other cute couple, Eric and Gina, drove down from  Seattle to join the fun. They were both sick but wanted to come! Thanks you guys for the extra effort!

So what did Miss Ava have for her daddy? Something special that she made! Let's see Ava!!!

She made Chris a great fish picture that said she loved her daddy because he was funny and awesome.

She was so excited! That other tooth is just about to come out!

Of course  Barbie had to come the party! She fit right in the soup bowl. Look out Barbie, you better move.

We just all had so much fun. We had to go to Baskin and Robbins for ice cream after the dinner....soooo full!

It sure was a fun day. Love being a "Clan" after all these years of waiting. I'll be babysitting Miss Ava at her house tomorrow.
