A little late, but….
Cameron and I decided to start a tradition for Father’s Day. Every year we are going to send Rian on an Amazing Race (treasure hunt) for his gifts. This year was relatively simple, the clues told him exactly where to go, but we had so much fun that Rian requested it become a tradition.
Here are the clues and pictures from Rian’s 1st Father’s Day:
Happy Father’s Day Daddy! Mommy and I have set up an Amazing Race for you for the rest of the day. We hope you enjoy it, and take time to have fun on your first Father’s Day!
Rian opening his scrapbook and reading his first clue
You need something special to wear
A little baby boy of yours is willing to share
Get up and go in there
You don’t need to do your hair.
What Daddy saw when he went into his baby boy’s room! So sweet.
Rian wearing his new “Where the Wild Things Are” shirt from Cameron.
We think a little breakfast will help you to feel alive
Turn around and give Mommy a High Five
Get in the car for another drive
We are taking you to Sam’s # 5! Rian eating the Farmer’s Burrito aka The Gravy Burrito. His fave.
Now that you are so full and ready to head out the door
Are you sure you don’t want a little more?
We are not going to take you to Ecuador
We want you to go to Barnes and Noble Bookstore!
Rian checking out what book he wants to buy at the bookstore. He ended up getting some book about the Hell’s Angels.
From Barnes and Noble you should be able to see
The next place Cameron and Mommy want you to be
Head over to Sports Authority
And go on a mini shopping spree!

Now you need to head back
To our house and get ready and pack
Put all of your clothes and shoes in a sack
Your wife has a nice rack.

It’s time to load everything and the dogs in the car
Don’t worry Macy, you won’t bar – f
Off to the Strine’s, it’s not that far
Hopefully they let the dogs play in the yar – d

Before we head out and go
We want you to stop and get some cookie dough
It is at the local Costco
We know you will love a gallon of cookie dough…FO SHO!
Sidenote: They didn’t have any cookie dough at Costco that day. They were sold out!
Clue #8 and #9:
Now it is time for us to all head to Vail
But there are still a few things you must figure out
You must find a place for us to eat because you are the male
You don’t want Cameron and Mommy getting so hungry they pout.
The next task you must not fail
Three times from the car we must get out
We must have 3 scenic overlook pictures of our family before Vail
You will not fail this task, we have no doubt!
Scenic overlook early on in the drive. Some weird dude took our picture.
We stopped at a hippie owned burger joint in Empire for lunch. DELICIOUS!
