Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to my hubby!  He is definitely the best father I could have hoped for Anthony to have.  Seriously, he’s impressive!

Yesterday Anthony and I went on a road trip to Wisconsin to see my parents.  We went over to celebrate Father’s Day and my brother came home too, so everyone was there except for my hubby. 

I knew we would need a way for Anthony to burn some energy while we were there, so I brought along his bike.  I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin (population 420 when I was a kid, and I think it’s less than that now), so I knew it would be fun for him to ride his bike around town.  I used to LOVE biking all over town with anyone and everyone.  The town is so small that you can bike all around without feeling like you've gone very far.  It was perfect for Anthony!

I used to love it when my Dad would go for bike rides with us.  I remember going on bike rides “to town” (we used to live 1 mile from “downtown”) and out on the country roads.  My Dad took off on his bike twice with Anthony.  Dad said that Anthony was talking the entire time - reading all of the signs, and telling him all about everything he was seeing.  I think my Dad enjoyed experiencing their small town through Anthony's eyes.  My Mom and I walked behind them on their second bike ride and we visited a couple parks too.

At the first park Anthony played for just a few minutes and then he was ready to go.  He said, “This park was bigger the last time I was here…”

Yes, yes it was.  My how you have grown.

The second park has a really cool castle to climb on.  We only ended up stayed at the park for about 10 minutes, and then we continued on.  I think Anthony was enjoying the bike ride more than the parks.

This boy can spin and spin on a merry-go-round.  This Momma was dizzy just from pushing him!  He loved it though!

On the bike ride back to my parents house, we stopped by to visit with some long-time family friends.  One of my childhood friends was home for the weekend – it was great to see her!  Her Dad has some toys, and Anthony enjoyed going for golf cart and 4-wheeler rides.  He even got Grandpa to take him for a ride in the golf cart!  You can tell by that grin that he is totally loving this!!

Ready for a 4-wheeler ride with my childhood friend!  We had the best times together as kids!

We enjoyed a great day visiting my parents and exploring their small town.  Anthony said the best part of the day was the bike rides – both of them. 

My only bummer is that I didn’t get a picture with my Dad. Definitely going to have to get one next time we see my parents.

Happy Father’s Day to my hubby, my dad, and all of the other dads out there!
