Today is the first official day of summer! YAY! We celebrated by getting some time in at Nate's family's lake house over the weekend for Father's Day. Unfortunately for me, I will not be waterskiing or wakeboarding this summer, lest risk a placental abruption. So I did some kayaking and swimming instead. Maybe I'll deliver with ripped arm muscles from all the kayaking. :)
Father's Day was a success - pretty much a perfect sunny day at the lake with brats and burgers. YUM. My father-in-law seemed to like the weed wacker we gave him and Nate even got this cute "new dad" book from his parents. It is a great book - very funny and with cute pictures and little advice tidbits. If you are ever looking for a dad-to-be gift for a first time dad, I highly recommend it. Nate is a really hard person to buy things for, in my opinion, but I did want to get him a little something to mark the occasion. So Baby Schlotty and I picked out two board books about dads. Yeah, it's technically a present for the baby, but Nate actually really thought it was a good idea and in my opinion, you can never have too many books! He already is practicing for when the baby is OUTSIDE the womb :) I found both of these books at Target: Daddy Loves Me and Daddy Calls Me Doodlebug
After dessert, cribbage, and some myofacial release relaxation courtesy of Aunt Shari, we headed back home. My sister made a stop over last night because she just got back from Peru and wanted to show us her 1000+ photos. She also came bearing gifts - we got some coffee, and I got a necklace and a headband. AND...by far one of the cutest baby gifts we have gotten so far - a hand knit alpaca peruvian sweater for Baby Schlotty. I literally started crying it was so cute!
