Father's Day 2013

Bonne Fete Papa! Happy Father's Day, Papa!

Today is the fifth Father's Day we're celebrating together. The fifth!!! We can hardly believe how time flies fast. Early this morning, SO hopped in our bed and showed her papa the card and gift she made him. As I looked at them laughing and playing together, I had no words to express what I felt. I've always felt so lucky to have a wonderful boyfriend / husband; MR isn't perfect, but he is perfect for me. I thought that I was already head over heels in love with him, but when I saw him assume his father role, I found myself falling even harder. The way he is with SO is amazing and I am so proud to know that my daughter is lucky to have a father like the one she has.

SO's gift made in school for her papa - a cellphone holder and a drawing of her papa <3

A Papa
Mon coeur me dit
Qu'aujourd'hui, c'est fete
Mais quelle fete?
La fete des mamans? Non!
La fete des rois?
La fete d'un roi!
Mais lequel?
Le roi de mon coeur:
C'est mon papa a moi!
Bonne fete, Papa!

To Papa
My heart tells me
That today there's a feast
But what feast?
A feast for mothers? No!
A feast for kings?
A feast for a king!
But which one?
The king of my heart:
It's my father!
Happy father's day, Papa!

I have a video of SO reciting this in French and it is just adorable!!!

Father's Day lunch: Roasted Beef, French Fries, and Creamed Carrots

Dessert: Paris Brest (which is my Dad's all-time favorite dessert)

After lunch, we thought we'd take advantage of the beautiful sunny afternoon to go around on a road trip. We didn't know where we were going. It didn't matter as long as we were together and having fun!

We ended up first in Solgne where there was a Vide-Grenier going on. We bought ourselves delicious gelato ice cream while walking in the streets! Then, we went off to Sailly-Achatel, Secourt, Nomey, Pournoy-la-Grasse, and Verny. I never get tired looking at the farm fields in the area and the long roads. Our last spot was at this small town, Cherisey. As I was maneuvering the car, I didn't expect to come face to face to this (the last photo above). I blinked twice, pointed at it, asked hubby, "what is this place?" The photo does absolute no justice to how beautiful it was. It looked like an old castle that went through a thorough renovation. I looked online, it turns out to be a golf club (there's a really good restaurant!). Fancy.
