A Father's Day to Remember

Sunday was a very special day for us as a family. Not only was it Father's Day, but it was our first Father's Day. And not only was it our first, but it was also all of our brother's firsts too (bar one, he'll have his turn one day!). That's right, my brother and two of Jon's brothers celebrated their first father's days too, and Jon's dad celebrated his first father's day as a Grandad!

We started the day by giving Jon his presents, we went to church, we prayed for all the dads, Jon preached and then we went home t join all of Jon's family and we all trooped off to a lovely carvery for lunch. Eight adults and four babies under nine months. We like to make an impact!

In all truth, it was a lovely, understated, relaxing day (and Ruby slept through the whole of dinner so I got a nice break and a hot meal!).

But the really lovely thing was watching Jon be a proud dad on Father's Day. He wanted to hold Ruby at any given opportunity because it was his day for cuddles! I know he's been waiting a long time for his first father's day and it finally came, and it was perfect.
