father's day DIY project

I can't believe this will be our third Father's Day since Mason was born.  Please don't ask me what I got Ryan as a gift for the first 2 holidays ... I honestly can't remember.  There was probably something golf related and I know he played 18 holes one of the years.

Being a stay at home mom limits me on income ... I sell random things on eBay (don't judge) and make a few pennies that way.  I know the money Ryan makes is technically "Our" money, but I don't like asking Ryan for money for his own gift.  Mason can take care of that in the future when he starts forming sentences correctly.

In the meantime I spent a few (probably way too many) moments on Pinterest looking for a DIY father's day project I could whip up in a day.

I'm not sure if Ryan will read this post before Sunday (hi babe) and if he does, this will surely ruin the surprise ... but so will looking around our house since I have not wrapped the gift and it's basically sitting out.

Here are a few outtakes of Honey and Mason supposedly modeling for me ... the idea is to create a 3 photo collage with the letters "D" "A" "D".  

Mason and Honey were anything but cooperating.  The three that I chose are not posted (at least part of this is a surprise) and I can't wait for Ryan to see it.  I did get some slack from his friends about reusing an old frame I found in our attic.  The picture that I replaced was of Ryan and his buddies from a beach wedding 8 or 9 years ago.  They couldn't understand why we didn't have an 8x10 framed photo of the 3 of them hanging up in our home.  Strange, I know.  

I got the photo collage printed at Costco for $1.60; pretty inexpensive gift that will surely put a smile on dad's face!
