Father’s Day


(Thanks to my friend Petkid for the advice on making circle pictures)

Two weeks of secretive assembly work in the barn, and the younger daughter managed to put together the new barbeque we’d lugged home almost a month ago. She almost got caught a couple of times – her Dad arrived home at the exact moment she was shutting the door one night, and when he asked what she’d been up to, she told him she’d been putting away the lawn tractor after mowing (fortunately he didn’t realize she’d mowed the day BEFORE).

After the delicious Eggs Benny breakfast made by our eldest daughter (with our own eggs and ham, of course!), he was thrilled to meet his new toy, already assembled and ready to cook on. Younger daughter was none to confident about actually firing it up (which I’d forbidden in the barn for obvious reasons), but it passed the test with flying colours, so it’s steak for dinner tonight.

Though it rained in the morning, the afternoon cleared up enough to go for a little beachcombing at nearby Coles Bay, where the tide was way, way out.

All in all, not a bad way to honour the special guy in our lives.

    What a nicely executed surprise! That’s definitely one that you’ll all remember. Great photos (and Petkid will be pleased when he checks out this post!)

    I see you got the circle photos working. Sounds like you had a really nice father’s day with your kids. I never knew you could have two big circles; that’s something new I learned today!
