This Father’s Day was very different than all the others. That’s because instead of being home, we were in Charlotte. At first, I was really kind of disappointed that we missed being at our church, where Casey, along with his peers, would have sung a beautiful song to the fathers. I was sad that I wasn’t able to make Jad a gourmet breakfast, or any good food at all. I also felt bad that we couldn’t spend time with my dad and the rest of the family to celebrate this special day.
It is a shame we missed out on all those Father’s Day traditions, but it actually ended up being a great day.
Even though we were out of town, we were blessed to be able to have a free breakfast at our hotel. It may not have been super impressive, but at least we could get a little extra sleep and concentrate on getting ready for church at this beautiful building.
I always love attending other LDS congregations when we travel, and this Sunday was no exception. We met very nice people, and enjoyed participating in our classes. I was even asked to lead the music in Relief Society, and more than one person after the lesson (including the teacher), thanked me for asking questions in class to help guide the discussion along. Jad was happy because the men got Father’s Day treats.
After church, we went back to the hotel and ate leftovers. Not too exciting, I know, but because we didn’t have to cook, there was more time for jumping on Daddy.
Rigel got a little jealous. He wanted a present too.
When we returned to the hotel, we were hungry. All we had was some pasta, butter, cheese and spices. I did not feel very inspired to cook anything amazing, so Jad took a crack at it. Yes, my husband made his own Father’s Day dinner.
Normally this would have bothered me, but since it was so yummy, it just made him that much more
