A Happy Fatterside Father’s Day

I love my Dad.

We love our Dads.

The older we get, the more responsibilities we bear, the more problems we face, the more sacrifices we make, the more we truly appreciate the very men who have selflessly gone through all this and more. For us.

Our Dads.

The older we get, the older our Dads get, too, and the younger we should strive to make them feel.

And so for this year’s Father’s Day, our frustrated events organizer cousin Frannie of Frannie Tales got everyone together for an outdoor Children’s Party themed dinner to celebrate this special occasion in honor of the young-at-heart senior citizens in our lives.

We had…

And of course, the most awaited part of the night… CHOW TIME!!!
