I think Father's Day will be really fun when Roan is old enough to participate and help plan and execute the events for this special occasion. Don't get me wrong. I love to party plan and I love to party plan for Lars. But gosh darn it he is so hard to surprise! And to be honest I may have dropped the ball on some of the past Father's Days (at least I think so) . This year Father's Day fell on a super busy weekend. So naturally Lars said not to do anything fancy and to keep it simple blah blah blah, what he really means is "please make me feel special and loved."
The night before Father's Day was a late night and then Roan was up most of the night with a fever. As parents we teamed up and took care of our family. Sunday morning we were all pooped so we stayed home from church. (It was stake conference anyway, which BTW I think is pretty lame to have on the same weekend as Father's Day, just sayin')
The easiest way for me to show love is through food.
For breakfast I made pecan sour cream fluffy pancakes. For pancake recipe go here
The for dinner I made beef ribs. Lars LOVES beef ribs. Usually I do steak for such an occasion but when I went to Smiths they had this rack on sell for $5. I couldn't say know. I was so scared I would ruin them so I let Lars choose the method and recipe for cooking. We used the oven and cooked them for half a day and they turned our AMAZING!!!!! Plus the whole house smelled so tasty the entire day.
The rest of the day we relaxed as a family and started a Star Wars marathon.
Best of all Lars was pleasantly surprised with how much fun we had and how delicious the food was. In the end he felt very special and loved. I love you Lars. Thank you for working so hard for our family and for being an amazing husband and father. :)
