What a whirlwind the past week has been for my family! Over Father’s Day weekend, but before our Disney trip, we were whisked away to New York City to honor our Most Valuable Dad courtesy of Pampers. My husband is an exceptional Father and surrounded by women at home, is the first to get on the floor and play princess with his two girls. So on Father’s Day, he deserved a little manly pampering of his own.
Pampers has joined forces with Eli Manning, a new Dad himself, to honor the active role Dad plays in raising their little Miracles. Once we landed in New York City, my family enjoyed a day of sightseeing including a subway ride to hop on the Staten Island Ferry. My husband, a history teacher, loved playing tour guide to our two daughters as we sailed by the Statue of Liberty.
On Father’s Day, we were escorted to CitiField and were so excited to see our very first professional baseball game. We were honored to be able to meet and interview Eli Manning, two time SuperBowl winning Quarterback and NOLA Native (I actually interviewed his Mom last year)! To start the game, Eli Manning and his daughter, Ava, threw out the first pitch while MVDs where honored throughout the day. I loved that the scoreboard included fun facts about the players’ Dads and several videos were shown carrying special messages for Dad from members of the armed forces serving overseas. Although the Mets lost, we had a great time cheering on the home team with our giant foam finger!
