Father's Day 2017

It was a busy Father's Day.

In the morning, I helped Kai film a couple scenes for his latest video.

Kai decorated this t-shirt for me that he bought with his allowance money. My wife said he looked for the cheapest shirt he could find, ha! I'm sure he enjoyed decorating it, though.

In the afternoon, we drove up to Wisconsin for our annual strawberry picking excursion. Fortunately, it was not as hot as it had been for the previous few days, and a nice breeze kept us reasonably cool.

But it was still back-breaking work to pick the berries and the picking was not as good this year. The strawberries were small and a large crowd the previous day had picked over most of the crops. My wife had had enough by the time we filled two boxes. Kai enjoyed the picking and eating though, and I will enjoy eating our harvest in the next several days.

In the evening, we went to a dim sum restaurant. It was very crowded but my wife had made a reservation so we got seated pretty quickly while a crowd of people waited in the entry.

My favorites were several of the dumplings we tried.

Everything was very tasty, and the price was very reasonable.

It was a very nice Father's Day. But then, when you're a father, every day is kind of a special day.

Hope all of you dads out there had a nice day, too!


  1. You must have really liked that shirt. Handmade is always the best.
    Good for Kai. That was a very nice gift.

    Mm...Dim Sum...always a favorite.
    We had often run into long wait times when we visited Las Vegas and had eaten at our favorite Dim Sum restaurant there. It was smart of your wife to have reserved seating.

    1. Yes, it's nice when you see someone putting thought or effort into a gift.

      This may have been our first time going out for dim sum but we enjoyed it and will go again. Very glad we had reservations as it would have been a long wait otherwise.

  2. Looks like you had a very nice day! So, did you wear that shirt to work today? :) it.

    1. Haha, I did not, though I might tomorrow. I'm working from home tomorrow. :)
