Father's Day with Lily and Josh

Some days, it all comes together. This was one of those days.

The thundering herd rolled in directly after 12, and we kept the momentum going with a trip to Cookout.

Yeah, it was good. It always is. On the return to the corral, we stopped by KMart for a few supplies.

Then back home for some Twilight. We agreed that the books were far better than the flicks, though Lil was not all that much a fan of the books, at least the first volume.

During the flicks, there were housekeeping chores to keep up.

Then off to the Flying Saucer. Red Oak on tap about says it all.

From there, it was on to Ben and Jerry's for dessert. Josh needed a little chocolate.

Lil went for a waffle cone with even more chocolate.

And with that, it was done. A tank of gas. Lots of hugs. And they're off to continue their newly adult lives.

The house seems suddenly quiet.

Sounds like a grand visit and celebration, Jim.

I know the loud quiet of an empty house after daughter and grandson have gone home from a visit - almost too loud a quiet for about ten minutes, then I readjust.

Happy Papa's Day.
