Happy Father's Day

Our family had a great Father's Day yesterday!  The morning started with LP and I making waffles for breakfast for My Farmer.  We didn't quite serve them in bed to him, but we did serve them to him on the couch!  

Then we headed off to church.  During the service our Pastor had everyone think of their Dad and reminisce about what we remember or think of them.  Then everyone was asked to share with someone sitting next to them.  It was great to talk to my father-in-law about his Dad and listen to some of the memories he has of him.  When I think of my Dad, I think of his smell (sounds weird, but it is one of my first thoughts) and I think about how he taught my sisters and I to be hard workers but yet still make time for yourself and have fun.

After church, My Farmer, LP and I headed down to Altoona to meet up with his family to celebrate Father's Day.  We celebrated by going to the horse raises at Prairie Meadows.  This might sound like an odd place to celebrate Father's Day but we all had a great time.  They actually make the races very family friendly, plus all of us like to gamble from time to time for entertainment.

Then for supper we went over to my sister Amanda and brother-in-law Brandon's house for a Father's Day grill-out with my Dad.  It was a low key evening filled with way too much food for everyone that was there and lot of good conversation.

It was great to spend yesterday with all of our family.  We fill very blessed that all of our family lives within 100 miles of each other.

I also feel very blessed to have such a loving and great husband who has become a wonderful Dad.  It is so much fun to see how much LP looks up to him even at such a young age.  For LP, anything Dad does is very cool and he wants to be there doing whatever right alongside him - from being in the tractor, to eating new foods.  Happy Father's Day!
