Present for Tommy

The kids and I were really excited this year for Father's Day. We decided on a fun project to give to Daddy for his garden: a stepping stone.

I had all the materials ready to go outside, knowing it would be messy. It was a lovely sunny afternoon, and we started doing the handprints. I am all set to do the baby's and it starts to rain! We had to gather up all the materials (and the baby) and get inside.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a baby's handprint in cement? All he wanted to do was grab the wet cement. It took a lot of smoothing and reworking, and I finally decided to do his foot. Way easier. Sort of. It turned out really well, and even though Tommy spotted it before we could actually give it to him, it looks really nice in the garden.
We love you, Daddy! Happy Father's Day!
