Father's Day Festiveness

Our family had a wonderful Sunday celebrating Conor!  I had planned a tasty brunch for us to start off our day.  On the menu:  Bloody Mary bar (his favorite morning cocktail), lemon poppy seed pancakes (yep, the ones I was obsessed with during my pregnancy), thick cut peppered bacon, & fresh fruit!



I feel like a little expert when it comes to a bloody mary...  I did bartend during the summer of my college years and my brother's own a bar, so I have made many a bloody mary in my day.  The secret: Demitri's bloody mary seasoning!  Nothing even compares to flavor it packs, and you only need a few squirts.  Added bonus for me: it's a local Seattle company!  Another secret: lime juice.  Just trust me on this one, added a lime wedge to your drink; the tartness balances out all that spicy you better be adding.  And where you can really add some extra flair to your beverage is with the garnish!  I dropped the ball a little bit in this department, because I thought we had more on hand than we did (we are almost always stocked to throw together a bloody mary bar).  The Keenan necessities: blue cheese stuffed olives, asparagus, cocktail onion, and a beef stick or bacon strip!

The rest of our day was spent relaxing together as a family, busting out some dance moves (since Liam starts shaking his little body whenever music is playing right now), and work in the backyard (Conor built us a deck and is not installing sprinklers)!  We had a wonderful day together, but unfortunately I didn't take any pictures, boo!  We were more caught up in the moments together than documenting it... I'm okay with that!
