cheers to thad the dad!

thad's 1st father's day celebration was a
2 day event...we started off the real day with gifts
(a fly swatter, used golf balls and the fawlty towers dvd collection)
yummy breakfast (bagels & lox) and showing the sunday crossword who's boss.
we follwed that up with lunch at thad's favorite spot-
el charito in beautiful downtown molalla...the highlight of el charito
is not only the coma inducing food, but the awesome upholstery and beer that comes "en la bota".
we continued our celebrating on monday with a
round of golf in canby at frontier golf. it was a good time for all!

i must say, thad is a natural at this whole dad business...no one can make
jackson laugh quite like his daddie can. jackson has special smiles reserved
just for thad, and thinks he's the funniest guy around. we are
lucky to have such a fun loving, smart, amazing and loving guy to call our own!
we love you!!!!

thad and the babies

fajitas and cerveza en la bota

at least someone has a proper golfing outfit in this family!!!!

father's day golf!
