Father’s day was spent on a river in Asheville. We were greatly looking forward to eating at a restaurant called Baby Bull but, sadly, they were closed. The little one wrote me a book with various facts about me (as written by her). She thinks I weigh 100 lbs and that my favorite drink is hot sauce. +pt
We went and watched some live music. Local band Brother Oliver was playing, of which I’m a big fan (give them a Google, if you’re not familiar). They were playing at a joint surprisingly close to where we live and it was the tiny human’s first concert! She had a good time and we even got pizza!
We made another successful Carowinds trip. It was toasty but we were able to spend time in the water to cool us off. The rides were good, the water park was good, the food was good; the day was good. We’ll see you again soon, amusement park!
Yesterday was my birthday. Even though I had to work, it was nice being able to spend most of it at home with my wife and daughter. I got chocolates and the new Kirby game. Both I and the little one are excited to try that game out! We did go out for dinner with my parents and brother which is always a treat. When we got home, there was an (repurposed) electric keyboard box on the front porch. Mufflers and header pipes were inside. Although not flawless, they are way better looking than I expected.
This little lady had her second dance recital. She did such a great job and we’re so proud. It was a great improvement over her last recital, where her dance routine was completely independent of the rest of her class’.
My father’s day gift was given early. The Mrs ordered it and it arrived a lot faster than she expected. She was obligated to give it to me since it couldn’t just sit in a box for nearly 3 weeks. There were 2 different types of flytraps. The first was a “red dragon” variant. They’re supposed to be a deep red if given enough sunlight. Common flytraps will only turn red, inside of the “mouths”, if given lots of sun. The other plant was supposed to be a sawtooth variant but it looks more traditional. We’re going to let them grow a bit and see if that changes. How lucky am I to get gifts like these?
