Over the weekend I traveled to L.A. and it was the first time my husband had my daughter all by himself. Things went swimmingly and I think it was a really good time for them to just hang out together, since when I’m home she tends to defer to me. I asked my husband to take some photos of their weekend adventures while I was away so I could catch up when I got home. Here’s what their daddy daughter weekend looked like…
A Daddy Daughter Weekend in photos 1 of 11
While mom's away...a little daddy daughter fun happens!
Dinner date 2 of 11
Dinner date with daddy. Don't worry. He assured me that she ate more than just the table.
I mean… 3 of 11
I just love them so much.
Prom Watch: 2013 4 of 11
She was entranced by all the kids heading to prom...there was a girl in an emerald green dress that she was particularly smitten with. Apparently Fern heard that it was Pantone's color of the year - design savvy already.
LOTS of books 5 of 11
Lots and LOTS of book reading happened. A favorite pastime.
Sleepee Teepee Time 6 of 11
My husband reintroduced the floor bed while I was away and she ended up sleeping in her teepee. I can't say I blame her. It's pretty cozy in there with all the pillows and blankets.
Looking for mom 7 of 11
Sunday morning, she woke up searching from me, but all she found was our dog Marley. She was OK with that though since they're BFFs.
Smoothies 8 of 11
Dad's smoothies are even better than mom's!
A new old friend 9 of 11
Craig found this bear I had given him a million years ago when we were dating and gave it to Fern. She was a fan.
Home Depot date 10 of 11
These two (and Snoopy obviously...) headed to Home Depot to pick up some blinds for Fern's room. She enjoyed exploring.
Like father like daughter 11 of 11
...And a little family resemblance for you. These two had a great time without me and I'm glad they got to have some fun bonding time, but I'm happy to be back with my favorite people.
