father's day

So here is a cute story... This morning in church the pastor had all the fathers stand and was saying a prayer for them. I was holding Anna Kate in my lap doing everything possible to try to keep her quiet during the prayer. She reached up, grabbed Chris' hand, looked up at him and said "Da-Da!" So precious!I love this picture!
Mom made us pose more seriously... :o)
Chris, his dad, and his brother Lee

We had a wonderful day sending time with our family to celebrate father's day. We went to early church and then to brunch at Blue Water Grill with my family (becoming a favorite tradition!). Then we all came back to our house for a little Wii bowling. After a short "intermission" and a THREE hour nap for the smallest member of the family we joined Chris' family at Smokey Bones dinner.
Chris and I are both certainly thankful for our fathers and the ways that they have provided, cared, protected and loved us through all these years. I am so proud of the father that Chris has become over the past nine months. He is amazing with Anna Kate, and watching him with her only makes me love him more!
