The girls had definite ideas about what they were going to get him. Lily had a Super Hero theme and bought him the Ironman movie along with a coupon good for more movie time watching the other Super Heros together. She also got him a Super Pop cup filled with Pop its. Shelly (and I) made him 3 dozen chocolate chip cookies with 3 coupons for baked treats of his choice. She also got him cashews, root beer. and a cat shirt!
John's choice of activity for Father's Day was a trip to Mount Airy to do some cherry picking. We set out on our 1.5 hour trip and along the way it turned into a 2.5 hour trip. Once we hit the cherry orchard we were told there had been 800 people there already that day. So, that resulted in fewer cherries to pick. John climbed a ladder to get to the higher limbs on the trees and picked some cherries for us. Shelly and I also climbed the ladder while Lily secured the scene below holding the cherry bucket. We had lots of laughs about getting lost and climbing ladders for cherries. It made for a memorable day.
On our way home from the orchard we stopped at Dario-s and had a delicious lunch that ended with yummy shakes. It was a happy Father's Day for sure!
