The boys and I have had fun taking care of Connor today. It is HIS day after all.
First, a huge breakfast with all the fixins. This means extra bacon for Connor. Never have I met a man who loves him some bacon more than Connor.
Then we all went for a long walk around the neighborhood and through the forest.
Next, while he was happily playing a game on the computer we ambushed him! I told him he was being kidnapped and strapped a blind fold around his eyes. WHAT? Yes, that's right, we kidnapped him. We carefully showed him the way to the passenger seat in my car and then we were on our way. The only hint I gave him was there would be snakes where we were heading. WHAT? Snakes? "Are we going to the zoo?" "Will there be monkeys?" "What in tarnation is going on?"
He tried to keep track of the car's movements, but before long he was totally confused. Just like I had planned. A few extra twists and turns was all it took.
We finally made it to our destination. Sadly, my driving skills in the big city are lacking and I had to have Connor remove his blind fold before I parked in down town Seattle. But he sure seemed happy to see that Safeco field was within walking distance. Yup! We had a fun afternoon in the Safe watching the Mariner's BEAT the Arizona Diamondbacks (Hence, the snake hint...).
It was a great game. We all had so much fun. Of course, we ate way too much and whooped and hollered till our throats were sore...but that's just what you're supposed to do, right?
Hopefully this Father's Day surprise will live in his memory for many years to come. Happy Father's Day to the most wonderful dad on the planet! Your boys and I adore you more than you know Connor!
