Unfortunately it wasn't just Hubby and I enjoying some 'alone time'. We were joined by four very excited and very energetic children.
"It's Father's Day! It's Father's Day!" They shrieked - not great for the eardrums at 6am in the morning.
Hubby opened his lovingly (and messily wrapped) presents and read through his array of homemade and school made cards.
We all drank Milo (laced with coffee for adults), played 'rumbles' ( a family tradition) and generally made a whole lot of noise.
The kids made weirdly-shaped pancakes and managed to get pancake batter on every surface in the kitchen. We ate them with caramel apples and/or lemon/sugar.
Then we got down to the nitty gritty, the important stuff....deciding what games to play on this special day.
We started with Hide and Seek and then played Chasey. Then the good ol' Cowboys and Indians......although we've called it Cowboys and Itchy-bums for years.
After Morning Tea we ventured into the parkland behind our house. Basically it's a rundown old Golf Course no one uses anymore. It's over grown and full of trees...perfect for exploring.

Then we found the coolest tree......
That had a swing.....
Needless to say it was a whole lot of fun.
The greatest part of the day was definitely just being together. Watching my Husband relax and enjoy the children. The joy of discovery. The joy of new adventures.
The simplest days can quite often be the most exciting.
I hope you had a great day Sweetheart......Happy Fathers Day!
