For Father’s Day, I like to ask my husband how he wants to celebrate. It’s his day after all, so I want us to celebrate the way he wants. Last year we spent the weekend camping. This year, we spent the weekend looking at boats. Actually, he spent the weekend looking at boats (and got a mini vacation in the process).
He started his weekend with a quick trip to Florida. I would have been more jealous of his trip, but this wasn’t really a sightseeing trip. He was on a mission. He had an appointment to look at a sailboat that we are interested in buying. He spent several hours exploring and familiarizing himself with every inch of the boat. So much in fact that he taught the broker a thing or two about the boat.
Sunday morning Kora gave Thomas the Father’s Day card she picked for him. She picked the card out herself, so she was super proud of it and excited to give it to her dad.
Later that morning we drove to a boat show to look at more boats! Kora was so excited to see all the boats. She found one that she really wanted – it had a seat at the bow of the boat that she wanted to sit on! I asked Kora if she brought her money to buy a boat and she sadly told me know. She quickly turned to her dad and asked him if he “makes money.” Anytime Kora’s unhappy that her dad has to go to work we always tell her that he has to go to work to make money. She was quick to remember that her dad makes money and and could buy us a boat! She’s a thinker!
After looking at boats for a while, we were famished. We decided we’d rather head to a restaurant for a late lunch than eat concession food at the show. Thomas has been wanting to eat at Gringo’s TexMex for a while, so that’s where we headed. After eating there, I’m now wishing we had a Gringo’s closer to home. There were so many yummy looking choices on the menu that I had a hard time choosing. I ended up ordering fish tacos, and I’m glad that I did. Delicious! While Thomas enjoyed his enchiladas, he regrets not ordering one of the signature dishes. What he really enjoyed was the salsa and the green sauce before the meal. In fact, he said that the chip dipped in the green sauce and then dipped in the salsa was one of the best things he’s ever eaten.
We then spent the evening talking about boats and watching boat videos on YouTube. It’s not the most typical way to celebrate Father’s Day, but it was the perfect way for us to celebrate with Thomas. Happy Father’s Day Thomas! Thank you for being an awesome Dad! We love you!
