iPhoneography: Father’s Day Recap

Cdub is anitphoto. But it’s easier to get him to take one if I just use my iPhone. So I took the chance and only used my iPhone on Father’s Day.  A little iphoneography experiment if you will…..


Father’s Day was Sunday and CDub had a grand time. Starting Saturday. He played golf ALL DAY.  Sunday morning, he woke up to breakfast in bed.

At lunch time, we headed out to Houston’s. My favorite restaurant, and Cub’s too. We hadn’t been with Pookah in tow since he was about one.  When he was still eating baby food. So, after having learned the hard way about eating out.  I asked a LOT of questions before ANYTHING came to the table.  Luckily for us, we had an awesome waitress who listened to my concerns and then interrogated the kitchen until we found out everything we could about how the meals were prepared. Did you know that the Hawaiian Steak at Houston’s is marinated in soy sauce? And soy sauce has wheat in it?  It would have never occurred to me to think about the marinade.  But it occurred to my waitress.  So basically, they made Pookah a meal from scratch.  So Pookah’ s meal came, completely gluten/wheat free.  She got a humongous tip for her efforts.  We will be back.

I got CDub to sit for these photos. Once. Only once. I had to beg. So sad.

After lunch, we headed over to Lenox Mall to get CDub the rest of his father’s day gift. He wanted shoes. Just shoes. But those shoes….why are good shoes so expensive????

After naptime, we headed out to the park where Pookah and Cdub played baseball, raced, and just got sweaty and hot. Hell, they even got me to do cartwheels and flips and to join in the races.

Afterwards, we found our way to Murellis’ a local ice cream shop. Fun times.

We all collapsed when we got home. Bathtime, bed. It was a good day.

    Your weekend recap made me smile. I love the iphonogrophy–very inspiring. Its great that you guys had suvh a great weekend, and everyone had a good time. As for the whole meal made from scratch for Pookah, I was surprised and very happy they did that! I remembered that soy sause has wheat in it, but only when uou mentioned it. She was a great waitress!

    As for the shoes–men’s shoes are expensive. Don’t knoe why really, but they do have some better quality shoes though, and it can be repaird vs us tossing a messed ip pair away.

    Loving the pictures of course. Girl, good shoes cost, but very worth it. I don’t play anymore, cheaper shoes can be cute but kill my feet, knees and back.

    Looks like you all had a fun filled weekend. I am loving the pictures of your husband and your son. He is your husband’s mini me. It is so awesome that the waitress took so much care with making sure Pookah could eat a great meal. It show that she cares. It is so great to run into people who actually care about the people they are serving.

    This looks like a great Father’s Day! Maybe if CDub had a little girl he’d take more pics 😉 (you know how girls get their dads). Great idea
