After we hiked around Gates Pond, Emma asked if she and Papa could play in the sprinkler. Being the AWESOME Papa that he is, Rick said yes.
The photo of Emma squirting Rick is my favorite. Why? Because here is Brittany at the same age squirting her Grandpa (Rick's dad) on Father's Day in 1988!
Here's a short little video of Emma playing in the water.
Keaton had to return to CA the day before Father's Day. Before we took him to the airport, we went to our favorite breakfast place~yum! Keaton gave Rick his gift (which was also from Brennan): a new hydraulic car jack and an LED flashlight. Emma wanted to know how you play with them. LOL Okay, so not exciting to most girls, but Rick was thrilled. And I am thrilled that the cars won't be falling on him while he's fixing them.
She and Brittany gave him four tickets to see Cars 2, which we just saw on Saturday, and it was fantastic! She was thrilled with her gift! Ha ha!
They also gave him a Bruins T-shrt. Have I mentioned that the Boston Bruins are the Stanley Cup Winners??? Just checking!
Ew...I had post-hike hair, but I wanted a photo of the two of us.
Miss Emma also gave Papa a little craft book which contained all the fixin's for two race cars. They made those while Brittany and I cooked Rick's favorite dinner.
Emma and Brittany made Rick's favorite desert: a chocolate cake. But this wasn't just any chocolate cake: it had four layers, separated by Cookies 'N Cream frosting, with fudge frosting on the outside. Yes, it tasted as good as it looks! In fact, we still have some in the freezer for our next "we simply must have chocolate" moment!
Oh, and here's the card I made for Rick. I totally copied this from you-know-who, Miss Christy. She's been doing a lot of my paper crafting thinking for me, hasn't she? Well, I may be missing some of my marbles, but at least I know where they are: in Christy's head. Christy, that should really scare you! LOL Rick really liked the card. He was thrilled that it wasn't girly, ha ha!
