Zander had a fun Father's Day - going out for breakfast, helping Mommy & Nana Pat with some planting/gardening, swinging/sliding, going to the park, but one thing was missing: Daddy! Unfortunately Daddy had to leave for a business trip on Saturday night, so we celebrated with him yesterday. Zander wanted to make sure Daddy knew he was thinking of him today however, so here is his video (Take 2) for Daddy, recorded just after dinner. Ignore the "I see it!" interruptions - this is just Zander expressing his excitement to review the completed footage.
We're posting this for Daddy so he can pick it up at his conference in Cannes (yes, south coast of France, so we aren't feeling too sorry for him).
Here was Take 1 of the video, recorded just after breakfast. It illustrates clearly why we moved from "Happy Father's Day" to "Happy Daddy's Day"...
Happy Father's Day Daddy! We love you and miss you very much!!

Saturday we celebrated our first 'Gotcha' or 'Forever Family' Day, marking a year since Zander joined our family. We enjoyed a delightful day downtown Minneapolis, starting at the Farmer's Market:

Decked out for the Twins game:
Zander loved his 'Shrimp Guppies' - yummy and adorable presentation!

It was a year ago today that we first met Zander in Seoul! Although it feels like the meeting was just yesterday, in many ways it is hard for us to remember life before Zander. He has been such an amazing addition to our family and we love him to pieces! Here is Mommy playing with Zander at the agency during our first meeting on June 7th, 2010:
Zander, thanks for an incredible year of firsts together! We love you more and more each day and are so lucky that you are part of our family!!
