Father's Day

~Father's Day was great, and I felt I needed to record it... Charlie and I picked out a portable hammock for Chuck a few weeks ago, and I instructed Charlie not to tell Daddy about it. Well, he told Daddy that we had a present for him, but I was SO proud of Charlie for not telling him what it was or where we hid it. What Charlie doesn't know is that Chuck tricked me into telling him a week ago! Argh! Hehehe.

So for Father's Day we gave Chuck his hammock and enjoyed some outdoor time (more slip-n-slide of course!).

Then we took naps...

And then we got a surprise visit from my dad and step-mom. That was so great! Charlie was so excited, and he tried to be so strong later when they left, but he sat at the window waving and saying "Bye Bye, I love you!" over and over, until he was in tears. While they were here, my dad said he'd get Chance to nap while the rest of us went to Target. So he said he spent about 15 minutes reading Chance a book, then Chance fell asleep with him. That's amazing, considering Chance doesn't usually fall asleep unless he's in his crib. "Big Daddy" has the touch I guess.

~I took the boys to the park today, even though it was about 90 degrees out, hoping to run off some energy for nap time. It worked. :) On the way home I told Charlie he had two options. Read books in bed or take a nap. He said "how bout I just skip options today?" I thought that was pretty funny.

In other news, it finally dawned on me (one of those, "well, duh!" moments) that I could put verses on photos now. I'll post a couple and if you want to see more just click on these and it'll take you to where they are.

Children are a Gift (ps 127:3)

Laughter (Proverbs 17:22)

I have more funny stories to share, but it'll have to wait til tomorrow... So stay tuned. :)
