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°
It is so weird. My baby just had his promotion this morning! (I didn't have time to finish this post the other day. He promoted on Thurs. June 10th) I will never ever have another child in middle school. I will never ever have to help with a History Day Project or a Science Fair!! YEAH!!! Although at the same time it is a little bit sad that my baby is growing up! I can't believe that he will be in High School next year! Here are a few pics from his 8th grade promotion... Here is a pic of him with a couple of his friends from our ward that came to his promotion, Kelsey and Madison...
Mr. Rex, a favorite teacher from Vista Heights! Dallin and David visiting with him after promotion... He is LDS too... he came to Dallin's Eagle Court of Honor! GREAT teacher, great man.... Thank you Mr. Rex!
Chad and Nick, a good friend...
Brothers. ALWAYS wrestling... brotherly love.
After the promotion we went out for breakfast at Bob's Big Boy... Dallin, Chad and Brad in the parking lot
Kelsey and Chad at Bob's Big Boy!
Congrats you 2.... Good luck in High School! Love you!
I have a WONDERFUL husband who supports me in everything I do! He is a great father! We are so lucky to have him! I love being with him whether it is an exciting trip to Hawaii or just going out for a quick lunch... okay, I even like sitting on the couch watching TV with him! He is the best! We have been blessed with 5 VERY handsome, VERY kind, VERY competitve (haha) SONS! I have loved going to their sporting events and "cheering" them on to victory over the years. Time flies, I have learned to enjoy each and every day! Life is too short! I have been SO blessed! I have 2 beutiful daughters in law whom I am SO grateful for! They are wonderful and add so much joy to my life! I always wanted a daughter and now I have TWO! AND, we have 2 new grandsons who have stole my heart!!! I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the youth of the church... trying to help them see the importance of EVERY decision they make! I currently teach institute. I love to play with my kids, GO TO THE BEACH!, garden, go to a movie, go out to eat, travel, and just go out to lunch with my friends!
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience." -Gordon B. Hinckley "Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things." -Robert Brauit "The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache." -Marjorie Pay Hincklely

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." -Marjorie Pay Hinckley
