To celebrate Father's Day we decided to go to a beach that's about 45 minutes away. My husband had never been to that one, and I hadn't gone in over 10 years. It's in Tarpon Springs, Florida. You drive from a nature park area with pavilions and playgrounds across a causeway to the little beach island.
We hung out at the beach for about 2 hours. Then we changed into dry clothes and left. We drove back north a little bit and went to have an early dinner at Cracker Barrel. That was kind of a spontaneous dinner spot decision. I think we felt tired out from being outside and were really hungry, and so we wanted that kind of food - mac n cheese, hash brown casserole, mashed potatoes, etc. I think the day went very nicely for my husband. He is an excellent father to our son. He plays with our son all the time, helps me take care of him in every way, and our son is always so happy when daddy comes home from work!
This is one of my favorite pictures of them together, taken in April 2009 while visiting my family in Alabama.
