Father's Day Recap

I'm a stellar mom/wife because it's taken me over a week to do this, but...here's a recap of what we did for T's very first Father's Day!  Better late than never, right?
On Memorial Day weekend we had intended to go to IU for the day, but with Aubrey's fever, we decided to delay those plans until Father's Day.  So after letting T sleep in that day, we headed to Bloomington, stopping first at Oliver Winery. As you can tell, Aubrey was pretty stoked.  She does love her wineries....


We did a tasting, and then we bought a bottle of wine to share for a picnic.  It was warm outside, but not too terrible.  Here's Mommy and Aubrey enjoying the day.

And, of course, we had to get a shot of Aubrey with her Daddy.  I love the look on her face..."another picture?  seriously?"

We then headed to IU to walk around.  It was pretty warm outside so we walked outside for a bit and then went inside to the Indiana Memorial Union to get her an outfit.  Of course, we decided not to after seeing that a onesie cost $24.00.  I couldn't in good conscience buy something she'll wear for like a month.  So we went to one of those discount places.

We stopped by Mommy's old stomping grounds, the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism.  She was so thrilled, can't you tell?

We then went to Kirkwood, which is the main street where the bar district is.  No, we didn't go to any bars, but I thought she should at least be introduced to it.  When she attends in just eighteen years, it'll be important she knows how to locate the hot spots on campus. 

Aubrey when asked if she wants to go to Purdue University.....

We finished the day going to Upland Brewery for some dinner and dark beer.  For those of you who watch the show Parks and Recreation on NBC, since the show is written out of Indiana, any beer they have on that show is from this Bloomington brewery.  It's pretty cool.  Anyway, here's T drinking his amber ale.

I'm afraid my dark beer drinking habits will quickly rub off onto my daughter.  Every time I took a sip from my beer, she would carefully watch me drink it.  Mommy has a future Guinness drinker!!!

Despite the hot weather, we had a great day, and I think T really enjoyed his first Father's Day with his girls.  Plus, Aubrey was exposed to the happiest place on earth, so how can that not be a great day? 
Hope all you dads out there had a wonderful Father's Day!
