Write about: the family dinner.
Enjoyed breakfast in bed this morning, courtesy of Kat and Max, who also gave me a lovely card he'd made himself (with help from Kat). Then I hung out with the boys while Kat made the chocolate quinoa cake that would later serve as dessert for Father's Day dinner.
Took a family trip into town for lunch (was initially supposed to be for coffee, then lunch... but then we didn't leave the house until 11:30 and that was that). Had a Skype chat with Max and my parents. Went out to the garden with Max to harvest veggies for dinner (broccoli, carrots, peas, and a cucumber from the greenhouse).
Then it was time for dinner on the deck, with the four of us, Kat's parents, Kat's brother and his family, and Becky's brother and mom. Was a lot of fun, especially when Natalie and Max started telling knock knock jokes.
Took two dishwasher loads to take care of most of the cleanup which, I have to say, is a helluva lot nicer than doing them all by hand.
Overall a really nice Father's Day. How could it not be, with these two:
"Pass the gravy."
"Pass the gravy... please."
"Maybe you should pass the bar before you pass the gravy."
"I wasn't asking you."
"You no good loser. What a disappointment you've become. Why couldn't you have been more like your old man?"
"Just pass the gravy, please."
"I bet you'd like that, wouldn't you? Have somebody else do all the work for you, like usual. You lazy bum."
"Would someone please just pass me the gravy?!?"
