Since June is, unbelievably, already halfway over, I wanted to mention two very special days here at Casa Gibson: Chris' birthday and his very first Father's Day!
On June 6 (the day after Al turned seven months old), we celebrated Chris's birthday! We had dinner at home and an ice cream cake from Ferris Acres Creamery. The next night, we left Al with a babysitter for the very first time! A babysitter that wasn't related to him, anyway. Her name was Colleen, she just graduated from UConn, and he didn't even know she was here. :)
It was pouring that night, but we didn't let it stop us from enjoying dinner at Ecco, the rooftop bar at one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Bethel. The last time we were there was Halloween, when we had no power or heat and were waiting on Alex to make his arrival! How times have changed!

|Happy Birthday Dad! (Do they not look identical with their matching haircuts?)|
|Fun on the deck!|
At first Chris didn't want to celebrate Father's Day at all. I would not have that! And so we had a great weekend! On Saturday we took Alex to Jennings Beach for the first time. It was a very, very brief time but a good first time, I guess.

Sunday Chris grilled and did a little homebrewing. I made sure to take a few Father/Son pics in their matching blue button-downs right at the end of the day. We were encroaching on Al's bedtime, which is why he looks a tad grumpy in the second pic. Actually...that's exactly what Chris looks like when I take too many pics. Like father, like son!
You are a wonderful dad Christopher, and Alexander is so lucky to have you to look up to! :) Hope your first Father's Day was a great one!
