Happy Father's Day!!

"A father is loved not for how tall he stands but for how often he bends to help, comfort and teach."

We had a wonderful Father's Day (or so I think). After sleeping in a little this morning (we didn't make it to class this morning b/c the kids as well as Matt and I are battling runny eyes, noses and sneezing uncontrollably) we got ready for church. The kids matched their daddy (everyone was wearing yellow) but alas I had no yellow so I didn't match the family.

Caleb had a bad case of the giggles while trying to get a good picture of the kids and Matt.

This was the best one out of about 10 pictures I took.

After church we (us and my parents) met Hope and Chris at IHOP for a Father's Day breakfast/lunch. IHOP was Pops choice as he was the Father that got to choose. Matt didn't care where we are just as long as we ate. Here is Matt and Caleb waiting for our table which only took about 5 minutes. I was impressed with such a short wait as there was 9 of us and it was Father's Day. Maybe other fathers picked fancier restaurants. My dad isn't fancy though :)

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch/breakfast after which Pops opened his present. We let me open ours there but Hope's was too big and was therefore brought to their house.

Hope and Pops (She reluctantly let me take this picture as her hair was wild b/c her and Chris had come in his convertible and had ridden with the top down!)

We were trying to get the IHOP sign on the door in the picture. We didn't realize until we got home that it looks like we ate at the "IHO" not the IHOP :)

Once home Matt got to open his present which was Selah's Timeless Collection. He has been asking for this for awhile now.

and then sit on the couch and enjoy watching the US Open. He was "off duty" today. (I got that present on Mother's Day so it was only fair that Matt get it on his day) He didn't have to change any diapers, he didn't have to break up any fights, he wasn't responsible for discipling any kids, etc. He got to sit and relax :)

All right, you. You bought my dress!!! I didn't know you were going to pick the exact same one!! I'm so flattered. Now we'll have to call each other every Saturday night and see who gets to wear it to church the next day! And when we inevitable do wear it on the same Sunday, we'll just have to have fun with it and go around everywhere together!!
