A Visit from Drake on Father's Day
I think that Joe had a good father's day...his sons and families were here. We had a nice dinner and a sort of lazy day. If there are little kids in your family...then you know how they become the center of attention at family events. Little Drake filled the bill. All conversation stopped when he came in the front door. He's such a well behaved little man...his mom and dad are doing a great job teaching him manners. We hadn't seen him in a while and were so surprised at his vocabulary. I had some little mini cookies in a pkg. and asked if he had eaten dinner. He said that he had and that he would like some cookies. He was walking around with his little cup of cookies when I asked if anyone wanted cake. "Cake?" he said. His face brightened and he quickly set down the cookies. He had been asking if there would be cake at his grandma and grandpa's earlier in the day. Kids all know if there's a party...there has to be cake or cupcakes. They didn't have any dessert, however. When I said cake....his party was complete. We set him up on the little footstool in front of the coffee table with cake and a cup of milk with a straw. He was the neatest little guy that ever ate cake. He had given me the biggest smile, as I brought him his cake. We went on to play with dominos and making a train out of them...connecting the numbers and then crashing them. Just the fun of talking to him and listening to his answers was fun for me.
As you can see from the picture, there is going to have a baby at his house soon. We know that the baby will be a little girl and Drake is so excited about all this. He even knows her name...it will be Annah Jade. She will make her appearance in Sept. We are all so excited about this. She will be the first girl in the Cerasa family in years. Joe's father's day was complete...a little boy's visit and a little girl about to make her debut.
