Father’s Day 2015

Father’s Day was a wonderful day from start to finish!  Hannah and I shared a rare, quiet Sunday morning at home as our service didn’t start until 11:00am.  (We normally attend the 9:00am service)  What a treat to start our day quietly together!
Our first stop when we got to church was to find Papa and give him his Father’s Day gifts.  He was on BBQ duty and wearing the adorable apron Hannah made for him when she was just 2.  I love that Papa still wears this special apron!IMG_7734
Hannah has a current love for balloons as in the past few weeks she’s learned not only how to blow them up but how to tie them too.  Because of this, Papa and Grandpa were treated to special Hannah-made balloon ice cream cones and bobble heads.  Smile  Happy Father’s Day Papa!
Our church hosted their annual Father’s Day Car Show and BBQ as an outreach to our city.  In spite of the forecast of rain, it was a beautiful sunny day and many came to show their cars.  There are often about 300 cars, motorcycles and other vehicles on display.  The church hosts a breakfast for those showing their cars as well as they hear a guest speaker who is brought in for the day.  What a great way to introduce new people to the Lord!IMG_7737
I always find it fun to see what they’re displaying inside the building too!IMG_7739
After church Hannah and I enjoyed lunch and a quick look at a few cars.IMG_7741
After lunch we headed home to do some final prep on things we were taking for dinner and headed to Mom and Dad’s.  First priority for the kids – swimming!!  Rebecca even made it into the pool IMG_7755
quite possibly not by her own choice!
You’ll note that my camera was firmly strapped to my wrist each time I was around the water so that I didn’t meet the same fate as Bec! 
My nephews thought they could take down my brother.  Ummm…nope!
We enjoyed a delicious BBQ dinner together as a family.   What a treat it was that Dave and Trish’s oldest 3 children were able to be there!  It’s often hard to get everyone together with their busy schedules.  Two of my younger nephews were unable to attend and they were missed but it was great to celebrate with those who could be there!
Hannah was introduced to neat Styrofoam gliders a few weeks ago when we met Payton and Gage.  We picked up a number of them for her to share with family on Father’s Day and they were definitely a hit!IMG_7748
Happy Father’s Day Grandpa!IMG_7758
Love you Dad!IMG_7760
Hannah and I are so blessed by the men in our family!  We love you!!  xoxo
