Dad's Day

Dad's day in a nutshell.

The girls had planned on coming down to spend the day on the boat at the condo early Sunday morning, even though Lolo works until 3:00 am policing the streets. Anything for the Dad. The girls showed up early enough, but so did the d*%$ rain.

Instead, we went out to breakfast and then visiting for the early part of the day.

It's almost 100% certain that one or both of our girls will fall asleep while in our presence.
Is it the comfort of being near their parentals? Is it the late nights working? 
I like to think it's the overpowering feeling of being loved. :)

Linds got in a little bit of yoga before her nap on the couch.





Later in the day The Coach went back to the house and fired up his pull-behind smoker. He'd been prepping some bacon all week in the fridge and it was now ready to be smoked. No store bought bacon for this connoisseur.

He also added in several slabs (12) of ribs for us, his Dad and brother. If you're gonna go through the trouble of smoking, you might as well smoke a LOT of meat.

Bacon (32lbs) on the left, ribs on the right. He purchased 3 whole pigs earlier in the year from some young peeps via the 4 H club.

He shared a lot of it (pre-cooked) with our employees too; which they really appreciated.
We spent Sunday night vacuum sealing all this goodness for later uses.
For the Coach a day with his girls and smoking gobs of meat equals a heavenly day!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, whether you were smoking something or not.

XO

It looks as if Coach had a near-perfect Father's Day, except for the rain. The meat looks delicious!

Yum! Definitely a good day for dad!

Also? Never fails, when Man-Child comes to visit there is always a nap involved. I figure it is either that he feels so cocooned in love or (more likely) we bore him silly!

What could be better than snoozing on a rainy day? Perhaps eating some wonderful smoked meat with your favorite dad?
