Father's Day 2018

Glad everybody was feeling great on Father's  Day unlike Mother's Day where my daughter was sick.  We all got to go to church and the kids served at the mass.   I was able to give him   his gift  in advance and I preparing  him home cooked meals was all I did on that day.
 If you remember last year, I made a  goal of  taking one family photo each month and we got to accomplish that, this year, we changed it up a little bit.  We take pictures on special occasion such as Father's Day and the like.  Even the fur babies were up to it this time.  
I am grateful that our children has a great Dad and I am so lucky to have him as a husband, we are so blessed.  I love the quote "Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special  to be a Dad",  that's exactly how my husband is.  I hope that when our children have their own family, they can look back and say "We are blessed with a great Dad".
The kids made their card  for him.
As part of the Father's Day weekend celebration, we  visited my  brother-in-law whom we haven't seen since my  father-in-law's funeral, it's been over a year.  He live a little ways but it was nice to visit him and his wife and catch up.

We also visited my in-laws' graves, his Dad, Mom, and 2 brothers.
I will leave you with this  quote by Ezra Taft Benson
"Fatherhood is not a matter of station or wealth. It is a matter of desire, diligence and determination to see one's family exalted in the celestial kingdom. If that prize is lost, nothing else really matters. "

  1. Family time is always special and home cooked meals is always the way around our home. Visiting with family and taking the kids to visit grave sites and learn about their ancestors is wonderful.
