Father's Day 2008: Old Skool

June 16, 2008


Our Father’s Day celebration went a bit old skool this year: a little sun, a little grillin’, a whole lotta watermelon, and…a watermelon seed spitting contest.

The seed lineup

Line ’em up!

OldestDaughter blows the farthest. TheBoy admires her skillz.

Husband talked a lotta trash, but it didn’t get there. Sorry, Deart. You know it’s true.

She shoots, she scores

ArtsyDaughter took the game to a whole ‘nutha level, bitches.

And then some friends showed up after hearing all the commotion — and all hell broke loose.


Benjamin decided he loved the ducks so much he wanted to hug them. They disagreed.

Gimme Kiss, Baby!

Aw, come on…give daddy some sugar.

All in all it was a good day. I hope you and yours created some memories of your own.

I read a piece of advice from Maggie on Heather’s site, “When I was single, I decided I wouldn’t marry a man unless I could be proud if we had a son who turned out exactly like him.” I couldn’t agree more. Your father’s a role model for your husband, your husband’s the blue print for your son.

I win on both.

    Wow – looks like a great day, and a lot of fun! I’ve never done a seed spitting contest… but might have to institute that into a family function soon! I can only imagine the heckling and things that would go on!
    Poor Benjamin – denied by the ducks!

    Is that a turkey in the last photo?! (The birdhead, not the boy, obviously.)

    John Paul II died on my birthday, which when he is canonized, will be his feast day. I will have an extra incentive to rejoice! And all the other Servants of God who have been prcieaomld! What a wonderful day it has been.
