Happy Dad's Day


My kids have a great dad! Sadly, he didn't feel very well today so most interactions included Kenyon laying on the floor and the kids talking to him. He did sit up for a breakfast of crepes and he made it to church. I asked the kids what their favorite thing about Kenyon is - pretty much unanimous - being chased. The kids LOVE being chased and tackled by Kenyon. They also love playing soccer in the backyard. The next favorite thing is that he will squirt redi-whip in their mouth and they think that is the greatest thing ever!! He is a fun dad. I feel blessed to have such a great husband to be the father to our kids.

Some cute friends of ours in the neighborhood provided a fun outing at Boondocks. The weather was great and the kids were in pretty good moods. The funny thing is that their most favorite part of the day - was turning in the tickets and picking out their cheap little prizes. You can see how a gambling addiction could get started. They couldn't get enough tickets and were willing to give their all for just a couple more tokens - all in hopes that they would pick the right game that would spit out just enough tickets for that next bigger prize. It was pretty funny. Thanks for the perfect family activity before Kenyon is out of commission. It was a very thoughtful, generous gift.

Pretty good timing all-around. So glad you could be together for Father's Day (even though Kenyon was lying on the ground!) and could do the ultra sound together. . . and then the next chapter of your crazy lives start. We'll be with you in whatever way possible.
