Happy Father's Day!

This year our Father's Day started earlier in the week with a delicious dinner with the Lairsen's at one of my favorite restaurants...Patrizio's. This wasn't necessarily intended as a Father's Day gift...but we so enjoyed ourselves that it turned into one of Tim's Father's Day gifts!! Why you might ask that it turned into a gift because between the 3 bottles of wine that were finished, the super yummy crab claws they serve and the rest of our meal - it was a wonderfully nice gift for Tim!! Plus, what a great way to start our fantastic weekend!

Stop talking politics boys!!

Saturday night we met Kitty & Rich at Aboca's for another delicious meal to celebrate Rich's win for this March Madness...he's been doing pretty great the past few years. I know, I know, it's June, but the point is that we are celebrating the win even if it is a few months later! One year I will beat him instead of coming in 2nd :) After dinner, we headed back to our house and while Kitty and I ran to the grocery store for some last minute things for Sunday's BBQ, Tim and Rich lit up a couple of the Cubans my parents brought back from their trip and finished off the bottle of wine started at dinner. What a nice evening. I know the boys really enjoyed themselves...sitting on the patio, listening to some good tunes, smoking some cigars and drinking some red wine. What better way to enjoy your Father's Day weekend.

Lookin' tough

On Sunday, as has been the tradition in the past, all the guys started off the day with some Whirly Ball. The teams were Dads (Steve, Rich, Don & Tim) against Non-Dads (Brian, Mike & Kevin). Avery and I went up to watch the face-off and she really enjoyed it.

Tim excited to see us.

This is one of my favorite pics...high-fiving Daddy after the game!

After Whirly Ball, we all headed over to Mom and Dad's for a pool party and BBQ with the rest of our crew. We had such a good time and how can you not when you have good food, good drinks, and especially good company!!

The diving board definitely got a lot of use - more than it's seen since we were in school probably!!

Come on baby...splash us!
