Happy Father's Day...

Happy Father's Day to the very best dad that I know...Braden and Garrett's dad! Poor Eric, his birthday was Friday and it always gets smooshed up against Father's Day, but he truly doesn't care. Think of what an awesome Father's Day Curley Springs had way back in 1973, what with a brand new son to help celebrate!

Also, thank you to Mary Kate for the tips on marking photos so others cannot steal! What is this world coming to anyway?

The first photo posted here is from our BBQ last evening. The boys WOULD NOT be still for a second, so some of them are totally blurry, but I think you get the idea. Four cousins, lined up at the kitchen bar, squealing and eating and racing to see who could get back to the bunkbed tent the fastest.This one was for posterity.

We had a great time with our friends and appreciate everyone coming over. I finally got to meet Hadley and Cooper in person last night and I am in love with them. They were both dedicated/christened at church this morning. Eric and I went over to The Woodlands to be there and to visit for their first sevice in the new building. It was a wonderful service, the music was excellent, and it was so great to see everyone again! It was neat to see sort of the "final product" of a church venture we all began together two years ago. While Eric and I have since taken our young family back to St. Paul, I think that we might like to attend service at The Woodlands from time to time. It was really very nice and awesome to hear Pastor Ben preach again.

Currently, Eric is lounging on the sofa, taking in the Cardinals game. I am more than happy for him to do so. He spent all morning yesterday mowing and trimming and he had to work this weekend, too...including before church this morning. He cooked an amazing meal for all of us last night and he definitely deserves a break!
