Sunday Morning I got up super early and went to the market to get fresh strawberries and blueberries. I came back and the kids and I made a awesome breakfast for the man of the hour...Dad.
I went out to the garden and picked a few flowers and put them in a tiny vase in the middle of the table. We had blueberry pancakes and eggs and bacon. we had strawberries and juice and muffins and coffee...yum! We were stuffed!
The kids gave their Dad their Father's day cards and so did I...then it was time to give Hubby his Father's day gift.
And yes it was still in the car. There stood hubby in the driveway in his slippers and shorts with his eyes closed (that directive came from the kids).
I opened the trunk and TA DAAAAAAA!
He was very happy
He immediately took the huge box into the back yard to put the hammock frame together. The frames is long but it didn't look as gigantic as I thought it would look.
Once it was set up which took no time at all....
he decided to try it out. Hubby lowered himself onto the hammock....and swoosha blam! landed on the ground on the opposite side. Hmmm not so easy.
OK, maybe the tension on the hammock was too tight
We take the hooks down a few links. Yep this ought to do the trick. He sets his cute little butt on the hammock, lifts his legs to get comfy on the thing and wooosha ka-thud he disappears in a flash to the other side and onto the grass again! By this time the kids are hysterical.
We make some minor adjustments.
He c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y sits down and extends his arms to hold onto the sides...tension fills the air...
AND... he makes it!!! He loves his Father's day gift and we all got a good laugh....however
I think the kids forgot that this was their Dad's gift
My Kids enjoying their Father's day gift :O)
Hubby just looked on and smiled
