Dad's Day

Handmade wishes  from Daddy's four girls
I really wanted to get a picture of Mark and the kids for Father's Day...but somehow it never happened! 
A rainy morning worked itself into a sunny afternoon.  After church we headed over to Grandpa Donny's house for a cook-out.  Mark took the younger kids on a ride with his dad's Ranger.  They had a great time riding over to see the animals at the college farm!

Uncle Joe gave Cy some pointers for playing catcher.  Cy hadn't played any games yet (they were all rained out), so it was a good time to practice!

Grandpa is letting Mark and Cy fix up this old "hog".  I forget how many miles this thing gets to the gallon, but I've heard many tales of adventure from my husband's boyhood days.  Looks like more fun adventures are to come!

We went over to see my dad and mom in the early evening.  Mom had the quintessential Sunday dinner, roast beef and baked potatoes.  (We ate too much that day!)  Mark showed the kids around the farm, in particular the barn where their mother used to help milk cows.  Lots of memories flood over me whenever I return to the farm.

My sister Marla and brother-in-law Paul had us up to their house for an evening campfire.  Their back yard patio is such a beautiful place! 

Brother Dan and sister-in-law Tammie came over with their girls after a softball game.  Tammie's had a challenging spring, with two surgeries to repair a broken elbow she incurred the day after Valentine's Day.  We pray for her therapy and recovery to work this time around!

Just another great summer dayof worship and family time!  We are so lucky!

Happy Father's Day to Mark!

Oh! I adore the cards and gifts in the first photo. So sweet!
Wishing Cy lots of luck fixing up that "hog" or whatever you call it. I bet it'll be a fun project for him!

That patio is beautiful!
