First off, I just wanna wish all fathers, including my hubby, my father (Papa), my FIL (Papa) and all daddies out there a Happy Father’s Day. Belated, rather. It’s a day that is oft overlooked and stays much in the shadows of Mother’s Day. Psstt…maybe it’s because it’s so much harder to get a gift for daddies…some parties choose to have Parents Appreciation Day instead.
In any case, last Sunday Ethan presented Daddy with his self-made laminated heart-shaped card with a Chinese written message, and a bag of self-made heart-shaped cookies (with colorful sprinkles; didn’t manage to take a picture of the cookies, because they all ended in our tummies. He made both in school and had whispered to me on Friday that we ought to keep it a surprise from Pete.
For our Father’s Day lunch, we decided to head off to Victoria Station. We had not been there in AGES, and it was a familiar comfortable surrounding that greeted us. Plus, the kids were overjoyed to be dining in a “train”! 🙂
Enjoying the bun and butter before the main course arrived. Hannah preferred to dip her bun into Daddy’s Cream of Dutch Pea soup, before eating.
They did not have a kids’ menu available, so we had to order a plate of spaghetti bolognese for the kids to share.
Vanilla milkshake for Hannah and Chocolate Milkshake for Ethan:
Pete ordered the Feast for the King of the House special (but of course!) and I ordered my all-time favorite rib-eye steak (which I am happy to say turned out marbled and medium just like I had requested).
After our very satisfying lunch, Ethan and Hannah had the privilege to climb onboard the front of the train (which formed part of the restaurant). Well, Daddy too…of course! I declined the offer because I was wearing an above-the-knee length dress that restricted me from climbing up.
