Happy Father's Day

To all the Fathers in my life, Happy Father's Day!

To my Dad, I love you! Sorry we were not with you today to make your day special, but we cannot wait to see you in a few days!

To my husband, Wow, what a wonderful Father you are! I cannot imagine a better Father to our children! We love you!!! You are the best!

Daddy with his girls.

Daddy giving Miller a very important lesson in how to build a fire.


To my father-in-law, What a wonderful Papa! We love you Papa!
We could not get a good picture with Papa and the three kids because Papa kept trying to get Ella to cover up the T on her cheerleader costume. I am a little surprised he even took a picture with Ella in the bright orange.

Papa teaching Sara Wells a very important boating lesson.


When it comes to getting Murray presents I usually have a very hard time. Whenever Murray wants something he just goes and buys it. He loves to cook and anything that goes with cooking, but we have a ton of cookbooks and really don't have the space for any more cooking supplies or gadgets. So I have put all cooking related gifts on hold. You can always fall back on clothes for Father's Day, but in a subtle way Murray made it known he did not want another dress shirt or golf shirt for Father's Day. I have been wracking my brain for a couple of months for a great gift and nothing was coming to my mind. Then about two weeks ago the perfect gift idea popped into my head. If you remember this
post, while I was away at the beach Murray and the kids came up with their slogan for the weekend. Murray asks, "What are we having?" Kids answer, "The Best Time Ever!!!" And the slogan has stuck. They love it and so does Murray. I thought, how great would it be to make t-shirts for them. Now the best would have been if I did not say a word about it to Murray and totally surprised him with the t-shirts. But it is so hard for me to keep a secret from Murray, especially when it comes to gifts. I did not tell him what it was, but I kept telling him how excited I was about it and that he would love it. So, he knew something different was coming. I started to second guess myself as today grew closer, but in the end I was right. He loved the t-shirts and was totally surprised. And the kids absolutely loved their own t-shirts that matched Daddy!!!
