A Fabulous Father's Day

Father's Day 2012
Father's Day started bright and early - I got up with the kids and we headed down to Starbucks to grab Daddy a coffee and some donuts.  The kids were so excited to give their gifts, so we did that before we started breakfast.  I interviewed Carter and Kennedy and they answered lots of questions about Dad - typed them up, added a picture and we ended up with a sweet little present.  Dad also got a new bike, since the one he's been riding since he was 14 years old finally died.

Breakfast of champions
I should have made something a little more special, but I was operating on very little sleep, so coffee and donuts had to do.  Maybe I'll be more on top of things next year.  Sorry Honey!

A little photo shoot before rushing off to church

The kids started off worship by singing a praise song in front of the whole congregation.
They sang, "Great Big God" and did such a good job.

More dancing than singing, but still so sweet.
There is just something about little ones singing about the love of God that warms my heart.  Their innocence and faith is truly special.

After church, we headed down to the river where we went for a little walk and then out to lunch.  We had hoped to go on a hike, but the weather wasn't too good and we were afraid we'd get stuck out in the rain!  A walk along the river had to do.

Carter and Dad -
handsome men!

A very nice woman stopped and asked if we'd like her to take a picture of our family all together.  Such a thoughtful thing to offer.
I'm happy with how it turned out.

my little old soul
those eyes are so expressive and seem wise beyond their six years
We walked up onto the I-5 bridge, because Carter was fascinated by the mechanics of the draw bridge part.  There was a safe little path and we were able to see and explore quite a bit.  It was fun being so high above the river.

After our walk we went to Who Song and Larry's for lunch
Carter wanted to take our picture  - Happy Father's Day, Kyle!
We love you and know that we are blessed to have you as the head of our family.  You are the fun one, the one who is always up for a game of catch or a quick wrestling match.  You have even perfected pony tails and princesses.  We are lucky!
Thank you for all that you do to provide for our family - not just by working hard but by loving deeply, too.
