Hope everyone had a great fathers day.

My son took me and his step-mom out to breakfast. This is a big deal for him because for many years, I only got a phone call or text wishing me a happy fathers day. I was blown away when he called Friday night and asked about breakfast on Sunday. We would have hung out all day but he had to work at noon.

I'm very proud of the young man he's becoming. For those of you that think the kids "don't get it", I can assure you that with time, they come to realize who is important in their life and who has "been there". The terrible influence my ex has had on him (trying to completely shut me out of his life) has been slowly wearing off over the last two years. My son will be 20 this September.

After breakfast, my wife and I met up with some friends and did a little trail riding.

It was a great day all around!

My Brother took the parents and me and my son out to lunch for Father's Day out to lunch... a good time was had by all.

Then me and my son went back to my apartment and watched the rest of the NASCAR race... again, good times

Late to the Party but busy Father's Day.....I got married this past year and we both had kids from before. I knew my daughter would be around sometime on Sun but that was all I knew. Of our 7 kids the youngest is 24 the oldest is 31.

Than I came home from church with my wife, and the kids were at the house making lunch (all the kids who live in town) and her kids who got my kids to start attending their church (a little to modern for me but at least they are going) and their church dismisses before ours. SO I had homemade Lasanga, and homemade salad with all the fixin's even homemade bread crumbs/ cruttons, and homemade chocolate chip cookies!!!

The best part? The card from my wife's kids, thanking ME for allowing them to share Father's day with me, and for being supportive and always "there" for them.

I was blown away...always tough mix families and be accepted by someone else's kids. I asked Sara why they weren't at their dad's, "He was to busy, had a golf game Sunday" all I could say was WOW!!! makes it easy for me!!!

Thanks to the help I got today from a friend I met on here, my son can come home to this when he gets back in a couple of weeks. Still need a couple of set bolts and some paint but what a long day.

Used some unconventional ladders. Lol.

Nice

Got to spend some unexpected time with my son today... we had planned on going to Summit Racing Equipment's Super Summit/Truckfest event, but I had to work all day so we didn't go, but we ended up going to the Summit showroom where I spent some money on the Jeep that I needed to spend and some on the garage that I didn't, then we went out to dinner afterwards.

I am lucky to have a 3 year old and a great fiancee but i will say you guys are all awesome. I know with even a 3 year old things are crazy with two of us so kudos to all you dads out there.

As far as food goes i keep things very simple and i like to cook. When i shop i get the staples, onions, garlic, peppers and proteins plus whatever veggies look good. Stay away from the boxed or pre packaged stuff as it is loaded with sodium and spaghetti sauces are some of the worst. I then pick a protein and a veggie and go at it. Keep stuff seasoned simply and have a proten and a veggie for each meal. Some of my favorites are mexican inspired dishes like fajitas and burrito bowls. My son also loves pasta so we eat that regularly but he really only likes my homemade sauce which i make in huge batches and freeze in meal sized amounts so i can take it out in the morning and it is thawed by dinner time. It is easy to make and i can give you guys the recipe if you want just ask and i will post it up.

The way you guys talk about kids eating as they get older i am going to need another job....we went out to a local pizza joint and he ate a third of a greek salad and 2 slices of pizza. I can't imagine him eating more but i guess i will get prepared for it

I still am concerned. He was supposed to be 200 miles closer to the airport right now but supposedly they're leaving at 1:30 am.

Remember to be patient when he gets home. Its always hard for the kids to transition between 2 houses, especially the first time.

Ok, can anyone tell me what is going on? My 16 yo son is in the kitchen doing dishes without being asked. This is like the first time ever.

Is he possessed?
