Happy Father's Day!

Alex got to stay up 'late' last night to decorate the table for our Father's Day breakfast (she traded the time it would take to read a story for some decorating time). She worked very hard setting up a meaningful tableau, which included a panda (for Alex), a badger (for Justin), a Daddy, girl and baby doll, a vase which she filled with fresh-cut flowers from her 'fairy garden', a 'throne' for Daddy to sit in and a beautiful sign to greet him in the morning. We also got out the 'fancy' plates (our old Ikea set from our apartment days) and a 'fancy' napkin for each member of the family. Justin, Alex and I let Dave sleep in while we whipped up some gourmet french toast, blueberries and bacon. Then it was time to open his gifts. Justin gave him a wonderful painting and Alex gave him a framed 'interview' "All About Daddy". (I adapted this from a Pinterest pin that was floating around last year, and absolutely love it! I think Dave will treasure it as well-- so cute!)
