It’s Father’s Day today. It is one of the few days when I am out of bed earlier than my husband. We celebrate with a family-traditional fruit salad at breakfast. Daddy was also going to get a lie-in, but then Kaya fell down some stairs and that was cut short – no worries, everything’s alright.

Kaya made this sweet medal in our toddler group and we managed to keep it in one piece until today.

He also painted a simple wooden frame with water colours, with great love and care.
We were going to put a special family photograph in it, but our prints didn’t arrive in time. This is what I get for leaving everything last minute.
So instead we used it to frame a few sweet words Kaya asked me to tell his Daddy, until the photo arrives.

We spent most of the day at a farm with lots of animals, tractor rides, bouncy castles and a wellie throwing competition for daddies. This outing might have been even more of a treat for Kaya than his Daddy, but when the young man is happy, everyone is happy.

Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies out there – and a special one to my Papa
(who, incidentally, blogs over at Schneetalrabe, for all you German speakers..).

I hope you are having a lovely rest of this weekend..

    What a beautiful picture of you and your father. Isn’t it wonderful that technology lets us preserve and share those old photos?

    • Absolutely! We have a wall dedicated to family photos that we put togehter when we were expecting Kaya, and it was fabulous to be able to have pictures emailed to us by relatives abroad! Very special..
