Happy Father’s Day to all the Fathers out there!
Ethan is so lucky to have so many amazing adult male figures in his life!
First, I would like to say thank you to his biological dad. We are now at a 50/50 custody agreement and I think it has worked wonders for everyone’s relationship. Thanks for everything you do for Ethan! I know Ethan looks up to you very much!
Second and my most favorite bond that Ethan has is with my husband, Randy. Randy and I have been together since 2014. So, over the last 4 years Ethan and Randy have really gotten to know each other and have built a relationship that I never knew would happen. I am forever grateful for Randy and how much his life changed when met. Randy went from being single, to a relationship with me and then a father figure to Ethan when he is at our house. I am sure it didn’t take much thinking because Ethan and I are pretty awesome, but I am well aware of the fact that he didn’t have to. There are days when Ethan and Randy get to be by themselves and they call them bro-days! How stinkin cute is that!
Ethan and Randy can now gain up on me and say boys against girls and boys rule. At one point in my life I never thought I would have that and while sometimes it drives me crazy when they do it.. I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Randy doesn’t talk much about his father since he pass before I knew him, but I am sure his dad would be proud of the person Randy is today. Sometimes Randy will say things like how these cookies used to be his dad’s favorite and I enjoy hearing those stories from him. It makes me feel connected to him and like he can tell me anything.
Ethan still has both sets of grandparents on both sides and I believe that they need the acknowledge because they are both there for Ethan when needed. Thank you to both of you.
As you can tell when I think of Father it is not always the biological father it is all male figures in my sons life.
For Father’s Day Ethan will be with his dad and I hope they have a wonderful day and we will celebrate Randy and Ethan’s relationship when he comes back to our house.
On Father’s Day our plan is to spend time with my mom, dad, sister, sisters husband and their two kids. We are going to a brewery tour and Gus’s pretzels.

Appreciation can be expressed by many ways! We did an appreciation event with a few local vendors this past Summer. We had lots of preparation beforehand and also learned how we can improve for next year.
First, in preparation we decided that each vendor that was participating will bring a give a way and we would do a raffle for it and let the customer choose what they would like. How you got to enter the raffle was by coming, seeing each vendor, filling out a customer card, and/or placing an order.
We had BBQ food and drinks for everyone that came and large games for the children to play with. Each vendor invited the customers that they wanted to show their appreciation too. We did a few zoom calls to make sure that everyone was participating and getting something out of it.
The weather showed that it would most likely rain throughout our event, but we were hopeful and we still kept it on. Fortunately it did not and it was a super nice day. The location was perfect we had a pavilion, lake view, and beautiful weather!
Everyone that came ate, checked out most vendors and had a good time. I did not hear anything negative at all.
Each vendor had their own space set up and I made it a point to go to each one to see what they had to offer and enjoyed meeting a gaining friendships with each and everyone!
Thank you for taking the time to read and have a good day!
