Happy Belated Father's Day




I have clearly been a slacker. I haven't even given a shout out to the Fathers in my life. Poor S. He didn't get much of a Father's Day. The Saturday before was INSANE--cleaning the church, a ballet performance, hosting an Open House for some REALLY good friends who are moving to Beaver, Utah (and you know for my "hosting" includes lots of grub), and a wedding reception of one of my really good high school friends. I was BEAT by the time Father's Day rolled around. Plus, S. is the Ward Mission Leader and has meetings at 7:30am on Sunday ("What?" you say? "Isn't he the Seminary teacher?" Well, the Sunday after seminary ended, he got this wonderful new calling. I had gotten one a few weeks earlier to be choir director--yipee). I just couldn't do breakfast in bed before then. After church we had family dinner (yea! With both of our dads) on Sunday, but S. had work to do afterwards so we couldn't relax as long as we would have liked.

S., don't let my slacking make you think you are not an amazing father and husband. You make us happy every day and we love you. When S. was little and was asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" His reply was, "Be a Dad." If that isn't the sweetest thing ever! Well, I can say that he is one of the best (More to come on his most recent adventure with the munchkins)!

Happy Father's Day (x3) to you. (Remember when life was so simple with only 1 child? It's so much more fun now. Right? Right?) We'll have another celebration when you get your present---the iphone.

I don't have anything marvelous to say, but haven't checked up on your blog in a while and was glad to read and see how you're doing. It's great to see that picture of S. with THREE. Good for you...

Sam,

You ain't the only one getting fatter every year:) I'm president of that club:) Hey you guys....can you stay with my parents one might while you are here. They live in this really cool mansion in a gated area in Park City. (I am not bragging, only trying to entice...seriously Michael Jordon has a house right down the street.) Anyways, they have four bedroom suites they never even touch, and would love to have you for a night. We live across the freeway from them, about 5 minutes away. Let me know if you are totally booked, or if you would like to stay in Park City one night.
