Bacon Slippers for Fathers' Day

The kids asked Piwi Daddy what he would like for Fathers' day and he said he would like some new slippers. Here are the ones he got for Christmas... or what is left of them.

and here is the slipper bandit.

We decided to get some basic flip flop which could withstand an occasional chew if Butter manages to get hold of them. Not very exciting....

Thankfully I was inspired by Diana's Coffee Mug makeover at Diana Rambles. Who knew you could get Bacon themed Duct tape! Piwi Daddy is a huge bacon fan so we decided to make him some bacon flip flops.

The kids would have liked to cover the whole shoe but I just did the upper part.

It went on surprisingly smoothly and I was careful not to leave any rough edges to irritate a toe or two.

The kids reckon he is going to love them!

Fathers' Day Card Alternative: A Treasure Map!

This year we are trying something new and giving Piwi Daddy a Map instead of a card! The map will be his guide to all the fun activities we have planned. The art work was a team effort: Mini Piwi drew the roads and our car on the map. Miss K added all the activities.
Last month we started talking about all the things we could do together for fathers day. The list got fairly long so we are going to be celebrating all weekend!

The list includes:
  • Visiting the Butterflies and Dinosaurs at the Houston Museum
  • Making Breakfast for Dad
  • Dessert at The Chocolate bar
  • Lunch at a Baja Grill
  • Visit the Pet shop with Butter the Basset
  • Present time!

Here's what we will be presenting to Piwi Dad at Breakfast on Saturday. The kids are excited already!
