I have gotten pretty creative this year with my gifts (see also my Patience Present post)! For Father’s Day I thought I’d get Troy a Nespresso machine – we used one on our trip to Chicago at the Peninsula and loved it! I was able to find the perfect ‘bar’ cart for our bedroom at Home goods for a steal at $100 in comparison to the others I’ve seen online. I filled it up with some expresso mugs that we already had, sugars & bottled waters and wheeled it in Sunday morning! Troy thought it was great and felt like we were on a vacation at a hotel somewhere! He joked around asking if I would turn the sheets down too.. 🙂 funny guy.

I also got him some pictures framed that we had taken of Maddox (look for the newborn photos post coming soon). They came out so great! It was hard to choose which to frame, I just wanted to hang them all up. Then lastly – since he had gotten me a watch for Mothers Day, which he only did so I would feel obligated to get him one for Fathers Day..I’m smarter than he thinks..I had gotten him an older watch he had been eyeing up.

We had a great rest of the day, after going with my sister to her church in the morning we went over to my Brothers to celebrate the new & old dads by BBQ’ing and swimming. Maddox even got in for a little dip! Took him a minute to get used to the water (which felt like a bath at 85 degrees) but he soon loved it!
