Happy Da Da's Day!

Yes, I know it has been forever.  However, my really good cannon rebel digital camera got stolen so I have been borrowing my mother in laws until I can replace it.  Thanks, Donna!

Anyways, enough with that.  My title says it all.  Happy Da Da's Day.  Yes, the twins still call him da da and we think it's pretty cute.  They happen to be the luckiest three kids in the world to have a dad like him.  I really used to dread father's day because of the relationship I have with my own father.  But ever since we've had kids I don't really dread it anymore.  I never was lucky enough to have such a hands-on dad, but I am sure glad I found a husband who has made the best dad ever for our three kids.  And you know I am not just saying this, he really is a fantastic da da!  One day I think they will realize just how lucky they are to have him.  I already know how lucky I am to have him.   

We had a pretty awesome Father's Day.  It's always good when church is apart of your day.  We then came home and Mike got his Da Da's Day nap in.  Later on in the afternoon, we celebrated Da Da's Day with Mike's family.  We grilled out and then played some cards (one of  Mike's gifts was Phase 10 Twist).  Lots of fun was had by all!  Here a few pics of our afternoon cookout.

Mike.....wonderful dad and awesome husband!  We're lucky!!!!

Had to show his new t-shirt.....he's always proud to sport UK gear!
He wanted to make sure I showed the back too.  He's pretty excited about the future at UK!

Mike with his dad, James!  He's a great father/father in law/pa-paw to all of us. We're thankful for him too!  Ella just had to sneak in this picture.

Dad and his two boys.....he's always ready to take them four-wheeling, fishing, anything outdoors.

Daddy's Girl...what more could a dad ask for.
Thanks for checking in.  I hope you enjoyed celebrating your da da's day!  Better get in the bed...we're off to Imagination Station tomorrow.  I'll post more on that adventure later.

Caden's Preschool Graduation!

Wow!  I can't believe how long it's been since I posted anything.  As I look back, I know why. We have been so busy, yet having so much fun.  This is one of the greatest perks to being a teacher, we get to spend the summer with our families.  Well, lets see what's been going on since I last posted.  Caden graduated Preschool......whew........I know.  I can't believe it!  He's going to be in kindergarten next year.  He's grown up so much, and wow what a great kid he is. He helps me around here so much, and is the best big brother to the twins.  I'm proud of him!  I can only imagine all the great things he'll do!  I sure will miss seeing his face everyday next year at school, but I know he'll be in a great school with great teachers.  His little personality is so great, I'm sure he'll have tons of friends by the end of the first day of school.  We're going to enjoy every minute of this summer and treasure our time together.

Here are a few pics from that day!  This is Caden's class.  He's had so much fun playing with these kiddos and will miss them next year, when he attends Briarwood!

This is Caden's best buddy -Aiden.  They're two peas in a pod.  I think they had the teachers fooled.

Mommy and Caden.  Thought I might cry, but I didn't.  I sure will miss my lil man being at school with me everyday.  He's such a sweet kid....I know he's mine, but he is!

Caden and his preschool certificate.....

Caden was chosen to hold the flag, during the ceremony.  

Caden with his teachers.  I think they did a little bit of spoiling him rotten.  Thanks guys!!

After school was out, Caden had his last soccer game, soccer team gathering, and t-ball games. We've also been swimming several times at the pool and lake, and last night we went to the drive in movies to see UP!  We're having a great summer so far.  I promise I'll post more often. We've got so many memories to make.

Have a great Monday!
