Happy Father's Day & Happy Bday, Son #2

Happy Father's Day to my blogging friends who are dads (you are still out there, aren't you?). I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing, fun day. We weren't able to spend the day with Dear Hubby because he is attending Boy Scout camp with Son #1 all week in Tennessee. I'm suffering from either allergies or a sinus infection so I declined the invitation to go out to lunch with Father-in-law and Dear Hubby's siblings.

Besides, today is also Son #2's tenth birthday and it took all the energy I could muster to shower and make myself presentable for our "date." Since Boy Scout camp usually falls on the same week each year, it has become a bit of a tradition for Son #2 and I to dine at his favorite Japanese restaurant. Rare one-on-one time together. This is actually our 3rd year. Next year Son #2 will also attend Boy Scout camp so we'll have to find some other way to keep the tradition alive.

Anyway, if you're interested in Son #2's Birth Story, click here for last year's post.

What a wonderful tradition to have with your son. Happy Birthday Son #2. I hope you feel better.

Thank you, john and nadine. I only wish there was more of me to go around. Actually, that's incorrect. While we tend to carve out a lot of "family" time, do so sometimes neglect a little one on one time with the kids. gotta work on that.

Happy belated birthday Son #2!

Sounds like you are having a busy summer, Elle!

Things will slow down significantly in the next week or so, sue. School ended on May 25, Son #3's t-ball ended a couple of weeks ago, Son #2's baseball season will end this week (weather permitting), camp is almost done...July will be much quieter. Kids return to school in Mid-August.
