A Father’s Day Gift…

photo

We spent Father’s Day in Ogunquit, ME (one of our favorite places) this year. We took a little weekend trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary (more on that later) and Father’s Day. We had a lovely time all together. I really can’t say enough how much I love going on adventures all together. It just makes me so happy! Kev and I have always made gifts for each other for special occasions. We aren’t ones for physical gifts. I would take going somewhere fun and a handmade gift over any “thing” someone could buy. For Father’s Day I wanted to make something special for Kev that Rowan could be a part of too. Since we think he is pretty “super” we decided to make him a Super Hero version of himself. I drew out the pattern, sewed it up and Rowan hand painted some fabric that I used for the D on the costume and for the cape. She was so excited to give it to him.

I think this video is a pretty special keepsake.

I could not be more proud of the Dad Kev has become. I mean from day one he was a fantastic Dad but boy, oh boy we are 3 lucky girls. He works so hard for this family. He has the biggest heart and the most fun loving spirit. He loves these little girls like no other. I could not think of 2 more appropriate special occasions to celebrate on the same day than our wedding anniversary and Father’s Day. I got to marry my very best friend 7 years ago and seeing him become a Dad over these last 3 has made me love him in more ways than I ever thought I could.

Two super short vine videos of Rowan painting…

  1. I’m pretty sure every boy grows up wanting to be a superhero at some point, so that’s cool that he gets to be one now! I couldn’t help laughing at how excited Rowan was for him to hurry up and unwrap it! :-)

  2. Awwww this is the sweetest post/video! My husband and I are expecting our first baby (a girl!) this fall and I cannot wait to watch him become her superhero!!! Your family is simply the best… so full of love… you guys definitely are a refreshing reminder of how sweet and down to earth a family should be.

  3. That is such a sweet gift! You can totally tell he loved it and Rowan was so excited to give it to him!
