Father's Day Myklebust-style

OM & I were going to walk to Albertson's and buy some donuts for dad's day yesterday morning but W decided we should go to Voodoo donuts. So we got in the car and headed to PDX instead. We had to wait in a long line b/c it's a popular place (& very small) but once we were inside we got to listen to Tori Amos blasting (a little too loudly for Owen) on the sound system. [I get to see her play July 11..cannot wait!!]. 

OM started getting, almost crazed, when they saw the donuts smothered in tiny m&m's. We walked quickly back to the car as they wrestled in our arms, sternly cautioning us not to drop them. W got a maple bar. I got nada. I'm on a diet (kind of weird I know b/c I don't really believe in diets but I'm curious about this one).

Wait, I did get coffee. We went up to Peet's and Powell's for coffee and books. Very nice.

Then we went to Trader Joe's for groceries (both O & M got the little shopping carts since W was there to help). Super normal family day but super nice to be together on what turned out to be a sunny day.

When we got home we checked out the growing garden. Check out my little tomatoes!!

Maya scissor-hands...

These are W's dad's day gift...

to replace these...
he's had them for almost 10 years. They use to be work shoes but for the past five years or so he uses them as outside shoes to take out the compost, pick up Star's poop, etc. I HATE them. I mean, I'm all for reducing but these are such an eye sore and so past their days of service they had to go. W's been reluctant to say adios but I think we finally convinced him.

Dinner: meatball sandwiches. It's like the easiest dinner on the planet and everyone loves them. Well, OM eat the bread, meatballs and cheese separately but @ least I only prepare one thing for everyone. 

Dessert: W requested chocolate cream pie.

Only W and Maya ate it though...I'm on that stinkin' diet and Owen didn't want any. I looked at Woody and said, 'what kid doesn't eat chocolate cream pie?'...

Owen raised his hand and said, 'me!'

Owen is awesome. Maisie probably wouldn't eat the pie either.

Please don't be on a diet. What one is it?
