father's day 2012

we were lucky enough to spend father's day with family and lots of yummy food. before church we had breakfast with the wesslers. man do i love breakfast food! 
i think this is a funny picture of the guys checking out pete's shade sails! 
i think this is such a great picture! i'm so grateful to pete for raising such a wonderful son. dave treats me so good and i think he learned that from his dad, who treats his mom like a queen. we're so grateful for him!
we met up with my family for a delicious dinner. mark put together a fun father's day game where i learned that the first father's day was celebrated in washington in 1910 (although it wasn't made an official nation wide holiday until 1972). 
i am still working on shooting on manual and a lot of my pictures didn't turn out. fail! i also didn't manage to get a picture of me and my dad or dave and the kids. but i did get a picture of the fruit "pizza" i made. apparently my picture priorities are a little out of whack. i am so grateful for a wonderful father who is kind, loving, has always supported me in whatever i have done and has been a wonderful example of living the gospel and serving others willingly and happily. and i am grateful for a wonderful husband who is the best dad. i love how apparent it is that he loves being a dad. he happily plays with the kids, reads to them, snuggles them and does whatever is needed for them. he teaches them the gospel, sings primary songs to them, gives them blessings and leads our family in scripture study and prayer. they are lucky to have such a wonderful example! watching dave as a father has only increased my love for him. it is one of the sweetest things for me to see. 
"Let us reflect gratitude for our fathers. Father is ever willing to sacrifice his own comfort for that of his children. Daily he toils to provide the necessities of life, never complaining, ever concerned for the well-being of his family. This love for children, this desire to see them well and happy, is a constant in a time of change." President Thomas S. Monson
