I am the worst gift giver of all time. I am inconsistent and often give bad gifts. I think I gave my Dad coffee for his birthday 5 years in a row. I try to think of something thoughtful and can't come up with anything so I panic! Every once in a while I hit the nail on head - My Mom LOVES her Birchbox! Tim loved his sapphire cuff links last Father's day!
I wanted to try to top last year's Father's day gift this year, and when I saw this Pin I had to do it!
I hummed and hawed over where to take the photos and what outfit Rory should wear, but eventually we settled on this super cute Gap Romper! Rory and I were planning a morning at the Farmer's Market so I thought I would try to find a pretty background there. That ended up working out really well...the Minneapolis Farmer's Market has an awesome garden section that made an amazing background. I love the way the brick and the flowers look! And I want that bench!
I had a cooperative playful toddler which made the photo shoot super easy! Even my outtakes were cute. Here are the 3 photos I ended up picking.
Oh, And the letters. I was originally going to go to Michael's and buy a D and and A. Then I realized I have and entire play mat that is made out of letters! So I borrowed those for the day and the colors ended up working out perfectly with her outfit!
Rory picked out a card (Mickey Mouse of Course) and the wrapping paper (soccer ball mama, soccer ball), and we framed and wrapped the photos for Daddy!
I didn't want to bring the breakable gift to the softball fields so I took a picture of the wrapped gift to show Tim he had something waiting at home!
I think it turned out so cute! Looks great in Tim's office!
