Father’s Day Tribute to Disney Dads Dinner

After our day at the Sprayground, we returned home for a nice Father’s Day dinner. Since we are having a Disney-centric year around here, I decided to give Tom a Disney Dads themed dinner. Turns out that if you combine the fathers of Ariel, Belle and Jasmine, you get a nice Italian meal!

We wrapped up Father’s Day by watching Finding Nemo – a great Disney Dad movie.

What a nice day to celebrate our favorite Daddy!

Love & Star Wars on Valentine’s Day

My husband is a Star Wars nerd. I love that about him. Since it’s difficult for us to get out for dates with 2 little kids, for Valentine’s Day last week, I set up a little Star Wars dinner and movie night.

Jedi’s Fries
Midi-Chlorian Mix (Mixed Vegetables)
Blue Milk

After dinner, we had some photo ops with the masks.

 We topped it all off with a viewing of “A New Hope.” It was the kids’ first time seeing it. They enjoyed it – Luke especially. Considering he’s named after Luke Skywalker, I’m glad!

It was a fun  and tasty Star Wars love fest, and my Valentine had a great night.
