Fathers Day 2009

Our month of June is SUPER busy with our anniversary, Jillian's birthday, Seth's birthday, and father's day. So, I wanted to make sure and include a father's day post in the midst of all the birthday celebrations! We had a great father's day this year doing what we do best...going to the pool. We started out by getting Seth some breakfast in bed, then church, then onto the pool and dinner at my parent's house. It was a really great day and I hope Seth felt as WONDERFUL of a dad as we think he is!!!

Before I get to pictures, I will just say that Seth really is an amazing Dad...he is a natural! I have these memories of seeing Seth walk into chapel at Harding (late of course) with a baseball cap on low...and just thinking how fun and cool he was. NEVER did I realize that just a few short years later, that boy would be the BEST father to our two girls!!! From the second Jillian was born, Seth was very hands-on and involved and in love with his girls. We are so very lucky to have him as the Dad in our house!!!!

Seth and his fan club

The Girls
I just had to include this one because I NEVER get a great photo of both girls, and this one turned our pretty great!

I have mentioned many times before that Seth has really gotten into grilling and smoking food for us. He is REALLY good at his new hobby. So, for Father's day, we got him a new shelf for all of his equipment, a new smoking cookbook, and some new utensils. Now he has his own place in the garage for all of his stuff.

Here is his cookbook

I also organized and hung up all of these strollers on the wall. That may have been Seth's best gift in his mind! I don't even know why we have ANY of these strollers...our kids WILL NOT sit in them!

Here is Papaw in his new Cowboys hat that we gave him for the pool! Isn't he a handsome fellow?
All these girls ADORE their Papaw! He is such a sweet and loving Dad and Papaw! We are so very blessed to have him! He is always getting on the floor playing with the girls and letting them boss him around! The girls can never get enough Papaw!

Jillian was pouting and wouldn't be in the picture, but here are the other 4! I love Ansley in this picture...if this is not a mini-Summer and flashback to my childhood...then I don't know what is!

And because Blogger SUCKS, these pictures have decided to not be centered! Anyway, here is Papaw enjoying the day on his new wraft from Mimi! He was on there long enough for this picture before all the girls wanted on.

Emmy and Jilly enjoying a wraft...aren't they just 2 peas in a pod???

Cute Baby Jules waiting for dinner!

NOT waiting so patiently anymore!!!

Cute girls watching TV after dinner!

Jillian fell after dinner and bonked her head HARD on the stone outside! Here is her bandaid that had her feeling all better!
We did not get to see B-Pa this weekend for Father's day, but will get to celebrate this coming weekend when he comes for Jillian's birthday. Seth and I are both blessed to have such wonderful dads in our lives and we hope that we can be as good of examples to our own kids! Our fathers are truly the BEST of the BEST and we are so thankful that they are in our lives!
Happy Father's Day!!!!
Okay, so this weekend is Jillian's birthday party and then Seth turns 29 on Sunday! Whew...I have lots of blogging to do in the next week!!!!
