Carl doesn't like to receive store-bought gifts from the boys, especially for events like Father's Day. As I am not exactly the craftiest person in the world, this puts a LOT of pressure on me every June.
This year, we went off to Cafe Monet for some pottery painting. We had a blast! They each made a hand-print tile (which is what I wanted them to make, especially since their hands are getting too big for the tiles!), as well as these ceramic jets which they LOVED.
And for Grandpa, they jointly painted a fire truck piggy bank.
I'd also ordered some mugs from shutterfly.
But I think my favorite gift of all was this "card" that Ryan wrote up for Carl all on his own.
Its Ryan's favorite Knock-Knock joke, which he tells over and over again.
"That's right, Owl's Who."
And then he added, "You are the best Dad in the whole world. Love Ryan."
