Father’s Day: No More Breakfast in Bed
Scranton, PA – When the kids were little, I enjoyed my homemade Father’s Day breakfast in bed. They would come into the bedroom bringing in a tray full of odd shaped pancakes, orange juice and the Sunday paper and slip into the bed next to me to watch me eat.
But, now the kids are older and so am I. These days, it’s a real treat to get out of bed and have nice meal with the family for Father’s Day.
