Roaring Father's Day

What is better than having perfect weather, celebrating the man you love, playing dress up, meeting up with two of your favorite people, and having a picnic at a cool place you've never been but have wanted to visit for a while?!?  Well, not much else! 

This year for Father's Day, I surprised Tim with a fun trip to Governor's Island for the Jazz Age Lawn Party and it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  We had such a great time.  My brother Andy and his fiance Rachel met up with us along the way and we took the ferry over.  The boys were so excited to see those two - Charlie had been talking about "DeeDee and Rayrul" for the whole week prior to the event.  We got all dolled up in our best 1920's outfits and packed a yummy picnic for the outing. 

It turns out that we weren't the only ones to have this idea... this place was PACKED!  And so many people were dresses to the nines.  It was a costumer's dream.  There was a big band playing, a dance floor, tons of vintage clothing and magazine booths, and some fun food vendors.  There were all sorts of folks that brought along vintage games and incredible picnic spreads.  There was even a really cool vintage photo booth!  We waited in that line for maybe 45 minutes - sheesh.  But hopefully it was worth it.  We'll get the vintage photo's soon.  There was even a 1920 bathing suit contest.  Too cute.  It really was quite a spectacle. 

After the Lawn Party, we rented a quad bike and rode around the island, all six of us!  Here are some pictures of the day to enjoy...
