Today is a different day. Being Father's day, all bets are off as my husband gets to choose what we do. Thus the "do something new and different rule" has been shelved for the day. We started with a movie – Healing Hands with Cuba Gooding Junior. This is a story of a young man growing up in the 60’s who rises above life’s obstacles to become a world renowned surgeon. What a great way to start Fathers Day. Click here for a link to the real life story of this remarkable man.
As the "do something new" rule is off for the day, today is a day for favorites and familiars in honor of fathers day. So we start out with breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast destinations – the IHOP. Linda was our waitress and gave us fast and friendly service. Mary, Victor, and Alejandra are also favorites of ours and all greeted us with smiles.
Stop number two – the . My husband loves to play Bocce ball and the Bothwell has a nice course that is free for all to use. You can rent Bocce balls from LARPD. The Bothwell Art Studio is also one of the studios open during the monthly Art Walk and provides a place for many of Livermore’s local artists to practice their crafts.
After a game of Bocce, we decided to head home to watch a movie. Big was on the list for the day. What a great choice for today. If you haven’t seen it lately, I strongly suggested it as a great “beat the heat” activity.
