Father's Day 2017

Seth had been gone several days the week prior to Father's Day and had a flight that basically got so delayed that he was up the majority of the night he was coming home. When I asked him what he wanted to do that weekend, he said "Stay home!". Saturday night, I made a "gourmet" dinner. We enjoyed lobster tail, crab legs, salad, and vanilla risotto. It was delicious!

We simply baked the seafood in the oven! This was a first for us, but it definitely won't be the last- SO easy!

Ready to consume!
Vanilla risotto. I tried to recreate a recipe we had years ago from a 37 Main, a restaurant in Buford. 

Adelyn set the table

Sweet boy!

Ready to dig in with this special guy!

I'm thinking he likes it!

We swam that afternoon and their little faces got some sun

We had to show the kids how to get the meat. I'll need to invest in some proper utensils, as we were using nutcrackers!

She's a big fan of crab legs!

Seth got a salt gun. I can't wait for the carpenter bees to come next spring. They'll be under attack. So far, Seth has had a "blast" shooting the flies :) Seth also got a Star Wars picture, fun socks, and his favorite coffee beans. 

 We followed the meal up with ice cream on the deck

 Before church on Sunday morning, we took our annual picture in front of the apple tree

 They're always WAY more into a silly face picture

 We both need sunglasses!

 We ate at Bourbon Street Grill in Dahlonega for dinner that night with Seth's family. Seth's dad also got a salt gun!

Our family on the square

Happy Father's Day to the best dad around. We love you, Seth!
