Father's Day!

I was really worried that Father's Day would be tough this year... I had a really rough day a few days before, but I was at peace yesterday. I DID wear my daddy's "Texas" ring on a chain all day.... I was blessed with a wonderful daddy, he was always involved in our lives! He always knew what was best for me and listened to the still small voice.... he was/is a wonderful man! I can't wait to see him again! I love you daddy!!!!
I was also blessed with a wonderful father in law! He is such a good man... we had a big scare this past week, he fell and hurt his wrist and hip. He finally went in and had x-rays. There is a "hole" in his hip (not the one he hurt, he other one) They did an MRI and then were a bit worried so they did a full body scan and we just got the results back today, ALL is well!!!! The Dr. called him at home and told him, no cancer!!! They have no idea why the hole... he could have been born with it, but he is healthy and strong, they will see him next year.... YEAH! What a blessing! Love you, Gordon!

The boys and I decided to get Brad a new BBQ grill for Father's Day! Derek was really excited, he did a lot of research on line for us... I also called Brad's brother Bryce who is a really good BBQ'er! (Is that a word?) He was also really excited and a great help! Thank you! So, Dallin and I went shopping.... Chad was at his high adventure camp in Catalina.... and this is what we found...

We bought it and took it to our friends house and Dallin put the whole thing together... then on Sunday right after church I took Dallin over to our friends house and we loaded it in a truck and brought it home and snuck it around into the back yard! It was fun to see Brad's face when he came around the corner and saw it sitting out there!

I thought about buying steaks to grill for dinner but thought it might not be very nice to say, "Happy Father's Day, now cook us dinner!" HAHA... so I made a roast...
Making sure it works... it does! Good job Dallin at putting it together!
Brad seemed happy.... now... steaks tonight??!!!!
Happy Father's Day, Bradly dear... I love you! You are a wonderful husband and father! The boys love you so very much, they all want to be JUST like you when they grow up... and I hope they will!!! °Ü°

I am glad that everything went well with your father inlaw. That must have been scary. That bbq was a great gift. I love summer bbq's.

I am so glad all is well with your father in law. How odd that he would have that whole. But how great that it isn't cancer caused.

I am sorry you are missing your father.

And I hope you have all had your steak dinner by now. :-) Fun gift!
