First: Father’s Day Fun!
As mentioned in my not-so-secret Father’s Day Post, I wanted to do something fun for Joe for his first Father’s Day. There’s more to Father’s Day than new, shiny grills and ugly ties, folks. I wanted to put some thought into it and spend some time to let him know how much I appreciate him and all he does for Anna and me.
So, I shamelessly begged the 3 readers of this blog to help me come up with some cute riddles to place in inconspicuous places around my house. As usual, you all came through. I’d like to especially thank Amanda for all of her help. For her help, she won a precious key fob that was purchased from my friend Steph’s Etsy Shop (Mada’s Place). Check out her shop if you have some time!
...it's time to unveil some pictures from the scavenger hunt. Please note that Joe asked to not be featured in too many pictures due to his bed head and ZZ Top afro-beard facial hair. I'll throw in one picture of him just because he's such a cutie!
I will say that I overslept that morning and Joe started the hunt without me. He thought he was supposed to find all of the “clues” before I woke up. Silly man, trix are for kids. So, I made him re-create the first three clues. That’s as far as he got before I woke up and said, “What the heck, Joe?!”
