Happy Father's Day With Love

My husband loves to sleep in.  I tried to keep the girls as quiet as possible but their squeals and giggles awoke him around 9 am.

Emily couldn't wait to give her dad hugs and to wish him a Happy Father's Day and present him with the king of all breakfasts: a bagel with cream cheese (which she happpily shared).

She had also painted a photo cube for him and had colored a card.



She also pointed out her Daddy's present-a washer toss game to play outside.  Our house is the kind of home where people gather for picnics, for swim parties, or just to hang out.  The guys always play bocci ball outside.  Now they have another game for their repertoire. He also got cash towards the king of all fish finders (which he now has enough money to buy).  Hopefully, it is in for his next tournament.

We spent Saturday at a local amusement park enjoying some together time.

Panning for fossils, riding rides, and participating in a show, fun was had my all.

If Emily could write a letter about her love for her dad here is what she would say:

Dear Daddy,
I love you so much.  I love your dinosaur hugs.  RWOAR!  I love that you let me get dirty.  I love when we have tickle fights and how you make me laugh.  I love how you let me do canon balls onto your chest (shhh...don't tell Mommy).  And most of all I love you for loving me.  You are the best daddy ever!
Love,
Emmy

When I read this to Emmy and asked her if there were any other reasons she loved her dad, she replied "I love Daddy hugs.  They make me so happy."  Then she wanted me to scroll up so she could see the picture of her with her Daddy.

That says it all, folks.

Awww, too sweet! That would just melt Daddy's heart, I'm sure. :)

Awww....that is so sweet! Btw, I love a house where everyone hangs out...we just need a pool, too, but that's not in the cards in the very near future. So, how 'bout I just invite myself over?

Her sweet note to her dad was just wonderful! I love what she made him too!

No sleeping in for our Daddy this past Father's Day. We had rented a popup camper and so we were all in one little room at 6:30 when the kids woke up. I think I will have to make that one up to him next weekend. He loves to sleep in, too!

I want to hang out at your house! Yes, my husband got to sleep in for about three minutes too - whenever there are presents to give, my boys can't contain themselves (and neither can I, honestly ;)).

It was a wonderful weekend. We love to entertain. I just hate dealing with the mess afterwards:)
