Happy Father's Day!

I am so blessed to have a Terrific Dad and to have married a man who became Wonderful Daddy! To me, a father provides guidance, teaching, support, and love. Both of "my men" are all of those things and more!

To celebrate, we got Patrick some little gifts (a book, handheld game, and Shan got him a kite in DC), and he got to pick what we'll have for dinner.

He picked manicotti and garlic bread. I found THIS recipe on Bakerella, and thought it sounded yummy...so Shan and I made that, too.

We also bought fun-size of his two favorite candy (Twix & KitKat). We wrote little notes on scrapbook paper (what we love about him, favorite memories, etc.) and wrapped about half the candies in those. That way, when he opens one, he'll get to read something special about himself.
