Father's Day

We didn't get anything together in time as there was only one card made by a child related to me the day we painted them. So the grand-dads only got phone calls. They didn't seem to mind too much. Sunday morning, the boys and I got to work wrapping the present I'd picked out and put together earlier in the week. It was quite the effort.
In the end, Bastian made the mountains, lightning and rain; Aleks made the fisherman, fish, star fish and Loch Ness monster (of course); and I added the water, cloud (painted long ago by Bastian), wind, and "Dad."

Bastian insisted Nessie get hit in the face with rain.
And inside... The photo is from last summer in North Carolina.
Papa liked it all quite well.

Amazing wrapping paper! And gorgeous photo.

Is Aleks aware that Lake Erie has its own alleged monster, Bessie?
