Happy Father's Day!

What a beautiful day. I hope wherever you are, you're spending time with, thinking about, and/or praying for your father. Being a parent has given me so much more understanding about all the things that never made sense about my dad. Now, I get it.

We started our day, as most Sundays, with Mass. The kids were on their "best-special-day" behavior and it was such a blessing to celebrate our family in the presence of our very favorite dad. He doesn't get nearly the praise he deserves. It's nice that all the dads at Mass were recognized and blessed.

After Mass we made a quick change, packed a picnic and headed to a local park for Bach, Beethoven and brunch. The day could not be more perfect weather-wise and it was so nice to share some time with two families who are so dear to us. I came to a realization the other day...just because our family "looks" like another family, that family may be worlds away from what we value and believe. Ultimately, the values and beliefs are so much more important than how many kids they have or where they live. We are so blessed to have found some families who seem to work so well with our own.

The "brunch" part while listening to some awesome Glenn Miller.

The king...on his throne.

I think she ate 10 pieces of pepperoni. 

On to bubble blowing...

and some Father's Day card-making.

Some pretty awesome dads with their progeny.

After our fun at the park, we bid our friends farewell and headed to see my father and grandfather. It was so nice to see so many people out and tending to their loved ones. A hot day on the hill but always nice to go and visit with Gramps. :0)

Wishing all of you a very blessed Father's Day!
"Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."
Also, of course, a very blessed Feast of The Most Holy Trinity.
