Father's Day

On Saturday the kids and I went shopping for some Father's Day presents for Sergio. We bought him a new fishing rod and tackle box. Of course, Aaron wanted one too, so we got a good deal on them at Academy. Sergio was pleasantly surprised with his gifts esp. his new tackle box (he loves tackle and tool boxes for some reason).

I was trying to take a good picture of the boys but Aaron never looks at the camera!

And in this one, he's scratching... Sergio immediately starts to put his new tackle box to good use

Later that same night, we took Sergio out to dinner at Enchilada's, his favorite restaurant in Dallas.

We also went to walk around this fairly new shopping center in Allen called Watter's Creek. The kids really enjoyed it, especially when I suggested we get iced gelato at Paciugo's. We then took a drive out to Aubrey to look at land. Sergio and I always dream of buying a few acres and Aubrey is our new favorite town. Maybe our dreams will come true once the economy picks up and Sergio gets a new job . He would love to have his own private fishing pond, but for now the lake will have to do. I have never been fishing or camping for that matter, so I am planning a suprise camping/fishing trip during the Labor Day weekend, when I have some time off.

On a sadder note, I was kind of bummed b/c I have no one (except for Sergio) to wish a Happy Father's Day to. My dad passed in 2005 so here is what I would have liked to say to him:

Querido Papa:

Te deseo un dia feliz y lleno de alegria. Tus nietos, Sergio y yo te extranamos mucho. Nos vemos pronto,

Con amor,

(I was around 6 years old, he was 25)
I am thankful for my husband and for my family. I am thankful that my husband is such a good dad. He is kind hearted, funny, hard working, resourceful and tender. I can't imagine my life with out him.

Would you like to comment?

  1. What a great father's day... I love Mexican Food. I will need to try it out sometime real soon.

    Now he will need to come try out is new equipment at one of the lakes by our house.

    I am sorry about your father, but what great memories...


I love your comments and read all of them! I respond to each one of them too!
