Fun couple of weeks here in Sutton-ville. Dad was treated like royalty for no other reason than being a Dad. Homemade cake, fine chocolates, Mario Kart for the Wii (“I’ma Luigi…yahoo!”) and a book about Woodworking that I already had. The best part was the time spent with the kids and the fact that it was my first Dad’s Day with Charlie. Cool. Not cool was the US Open dragging into Monday. The 4th was just like every 4th in Baxter and frankly that kind of predictability is pretty neat. Parade. Check. Candy all over the streets. Check. Decorated scooters. Check. Water Balloon Toss. Check. Fireworks like only South Carolina can do. Check. Nice having an afternoon cookout with my parents, Emma and Tim as well.
After the 4th we celebrated Charlie’s Christening with our extended family. Charlie has a great set of godparents in our friends the Van Sickles and a huge family to share in this special day. Cindy put on a great post-church party complete with ELLA ART CAKE!!! Mmmm.
Side note for those that enjoy an occasional ‘tweet’: follow all great and mundane things I care to share with the masses a la Twitter. Jasut is my handle. 10-4, over and out.
