My Time with Leif: Day 16

Father’s day was a success. Gavin called me first thing in the morning and we did some video chat for a while. He told me all about his visit to the French Lick Casino and how he won $6 playing the scratch off lotto. Hmmm. What’s going on over there?

After our video chat with Gavin, we ate us a Father’s Day breakfast of Waffles with syrup and whipped cream. It looked a lot better before we ran out of whipped cream. It tasted real good though.

After our breakfast, we packed up our gear and headed out to the beach to meet some friends. Besides it being father’s day, it is also my friend M’s birthday. It was a bit windy out and a little overcast, but kids don’t care about that sort of thing. We played beach ball, chased birds, spotted schools of fish, played splash the grown up, and all kinds of beach funness.

Leif and I had a few other things we needed to get done, so we said our goodbyes and headed out to Ala Moana Shopping center to visit the Lego store on our way to Gordon Biersch for dinner. Leif found another small toy that he thought was worth having. As for Gordon Biersch? It was nice. We watched boats and fish, ate pizza, a hamburger, french fries, and bread pudding with ice cream. By the time we were all finished, it was quite dark out and we were ready to head back home.

Leif fell asleep fast on the way home. He fell asleep hard too. He didn’t move a muscle when I carried him up to bed. Not even when I changed him out of his clothes and into his pajamas.

It was a fine father’s day. I had a great time with my boy. He is a blast to be with.
