As wifey and I were busy this morning tidying up the house (so we could have our Independence Day date later) while our little guy was out vacationing with his Ninong and Tita for their ID celebration getaway, I received this sweet treat for Father’s Day from Max’s Restaurant. Thank you so much, Max’s!
