Father's Day 2012

Brendan with the three kiddos!
 Father's Day is always a fun one around our house.  This year was no exception.  With no where to go (went to church in Saturday night, my Dad is fishing in Canada and Brendan's Dad is in Turkey) we had a relaxing morning of Breakfast in bed and hanging out together. 

Emma and Zoe made ties from the Chicago Tribune for Brendan to wear.
The kids got up and made cards for their Dad while I went and bought doughnuts for breakfast.  When I got back I took the dog on a half hour walk.  The girls wrapped Brendan's gifts for me in DC superhero wrapping paper and finished up their special cards.  We then got out the tray, put two chocolate frosted cake doughnuts on a plate along with some orange juice in a glass, and went upstairs to "surprise" Dad with breakfast in bed. 

The morning was a success!  Brendan got an Emerald Isle Classic Notre Dame t-shirt, the new Sherlock Holmes DVD, and a bag of M&M's. 

Flank steak, buttered red potatoes and taffy apple salad
For dinner I made some of Brendan's favorite foods: marinated flank steak, taffy apple salad, buttered red potatoes and ice cream cake.  Definitely dinner fit for a king!  I will share the recipes soon!
