My First Father's Day

My first father’s day was super busy and involved lots of driving, but it was wonderful. I woke up bright and early as usual and got a couple lovely cards from Kaleb and Jennifer along with some great framed photos. I then tried to get back to sleep, but by the time I was back in dreamland it was time to get up and get going. We were in the car by 9:45 and at AppleBee’s in Sturbridge by 11. We had a lovely dinner with the Riebe’s and hung out for a couple hours before going to Old Navy. It wasn’t a very successful visit, but Kaleb did get his first pair of shoes.

We got back in the car, this time accompanied by Auntie M and drove up to Amesbury. The Amesbury agenda included a Father’s day dinner at my dad’s, a pit stop at Hodgies and a quick visit to see my mom. All went well, I could type some details in, but I really want to watch tv with my wife right now so you are going to have to imagine how it all went. The one thing I have to point out is that Kaleb was exhausted for the entire day, which really effected his demeanor. He was really fussy and not on his best behavior, but Jennifer and I fully take the blame for that problem, since over the past few days we have dragged him all over god’s green earth.

Finally, today I put Kaleb in the pool for the first time. It was really just some basic testing of his tolerance of the pool since it all occurred from the steps, but I did lower him into the pool. He was a bit unsure at first, but once he was wet he was pretty cool with it. I am thinking on Friday I may just have to jump in and get him in a little more.
