My dad will get a phone call as will my FIL. For DH, I plan on smoking (using my new stovetop smoker) some pork tenderloins wrapped in bacon. I'd like to get some potato salad made to go with them. No big plans. DH prefers little fuss so it will just be dinner for him. Not sure if the boys are planning anything for their dad or not. They are old enough to not need reminding.

Sunday will be my first father-less fathers' day. Boo hoo. for dinner, mush of some kind because my husband had some major dental extraction yesterday.

looks like dw wins out for me.

i'm working a double shift until 8am tomorrow, so i'll need to get some sleep when i get home.

i'm thinking of getting some dads and kids together and heading down to the field for a little baseball, and/or off to the batting cages for a while, then out for dinner.

i think i want to go to our favourite family friendly steakhouse, Charlie Brown's Steakhouse: New Jersey's Largest Steakhouse Chain

Our plans have changed and we're going to go to Busch Gardens for a while in the afternoon. Not sure how long we'll stay but we have season's passes so it doesn't matter if we leave early!

First, Happy Fathers' Day to all you Dads out there! And to all the Dads of the rest of us. Mine's gone *sniff* so cherish yours while you can.

Just the two of us with the kids back home in Ohio. It's been a toss-up all day. First I was planning on making potato salad (not started) with hotdogs and burgers (still not mixed). Then I saw the corner store's ad with porterhouse, mushrooms, and corn on the cob all on sale. I suppose it depends on whether or not we make it to morning Mass or don't go till 5PM. Now Himself is talking about the Last Chance Mass (Sunday evenings at 8:00PM) down in Rhode Island, in which case we'd end up with shore food.

I miss the kids terribly, but the fluidity of our life is fun while we're on our own!

My DW, wanted to take me out, for breakfast, but I hate breakfast outings. Will see, I guess.

aww, don't fight it, chuck. she only wants to make you feel special, or important, or whatever.

loved is the word i was looking for.

go for it, dad. it's something different which attempts to display their love in contrast to the mundane.

happy father's day.

I treated myself to french toast for breakfast. Now I notice I dribbled maple syurp on my nice clean shirt for the day. O well.

I think earlier this week I heard reference to a back yard picnic today. I wasn't asked to help prepare anything, so it's either a surprise or a reverse surprise.

I got quite a nice surprise this morning. The girls made me eggs benedict for breakfast, including hollandaise sauce from scratch. Impressive!
