Happy Father's Day 2016

My Dad has never liked when his kids spend money on him. In fact, he's never been into receiving gifts from us. For example, I spent $50 for a really awesome Peanuts snow globe gift for him when I was 12 and he ended up giving to back to me saying it was too expensive! Anyway, today is the one day a year where my Dad allows himself to be spoiled by us kids. Because he doesn't particularly enjoy gifts from us though I always try to come up with something to do instead. This year, the whole family (minus significant others shockingly--it ended up being the original party of five!) spent the day hiking on a really cool boulder field. It looks like this:
Photo stolen from their website but you get the idea. Big boulders don't change very much!

Then Steph and I prepared a steak feast for my dad to enjoy while drinking brewskies out back. And boy did we go all out! The menu consisted of steaks on the grill, baked potato wedge fries (cut and seasoned by yours truly), vegetable skewers, corn on the cob, and mushrooms. For dessert we had cheesecake with berries and berry shortcake with whipped cream. Let's just say my Dad was blown away and it was really nice to see him relaxing and just having a good time with us kids.

Here is a quick photo I took before devouring all the food!
For my nails I used my Winstonia stamps that featured two of my Dad's favorite things: Beers and Grills. I used a Sally Hansen nude as a base (don't remember which!) and Art Deco in black for the stamp.
