Father's Day

If you ask Benson, he will tell you - I suck at surprises. I blame it on my mom and grandma. None of us can contain our excitement about presents long enough to wait until the actual day of the occasion to give them. Most of the time I get Benson a present I am begging him to open it 3 days early.

This little quirk of mine paid off this year and made Father's day that much better since I contained all of my excitement about his gift (and the fact that I had even gotten him a gift) until the actual day - meaning he was actually surprised when he woke up to this:

Father's Day_1

Father's Day_3

I made him a "New Dad's Survival Kit" complete with necessities such as:
Father's Day_5
a beard trimmer

Father's Day_7

Father's Day_6
chewy caramels

and a collection of some of our favorite childhood books for him to read to our baby girl.

Since our little girly has taken to waking me up at the crack of dawn, I also had time to make a simple breakfast of some of his favorite things before he was awake enough to know what was going on.

First Father's day = Success.

I hope he enjoyed it while it lasted, since we'll have an actual real life baby from now on, I think his presents will consist of framed pictures/handprints/footprints and kid-made cards. Woo hoo!
