A Happy Father's Day

First off, I can't understand why I didn't get a picture with Ryan and his girls after church today!  Now that I'm thinking about it, it was sprinkling outside, but still!  I could've gotten a quick one, but at least I got one with the ice cream cake.  Darn it.  Anyway, I hope he had a good day.  Before church the girls gave him some sweet homemade cards and we also gave him some flip flops and also some ear buds for when he goes running.  After church and lunch I surprised Ryan with a Blizzard cake from Dairy Queen.  I usually get him one for Father's Day each year so I'm sure he knew it was coming!  He got to take a long nap snuggled up next to his girls, then we had dinner.  He grilled Filets and I made squash casserole.  I felt bad that he technically still cooked, but I didn't think anyone wanted a steak that Mom made...
We are so very grateful for Ryan.  He's always putting himself before us, he's thoughtful, gives really good hugs, makes me laugh until I cry, and is the best Dad for our girls.  Couldn't have chosen anyone better!

Kit Kat

We had the missionaries over for dinner last night.  Always nice to have them over.  Normally after we finish eating, they'll have a special message for us to share, but last night I had a request for their message.  Since Lane is getting baptized in November, I asked them if they could talk with her about baptism and what it means, why we do it, and why she wants to do it.  I'm so glad I did because as much as we talk to her about it, or her learning about it in sharing time at church, it was nice for her to have them talk just to her.  Elder Clement related to the meaning of baptism to a Kit Kat candy bar, mainly the Kat part.  He told Lane to remember what the K, A, and T stood for and she'd be good.

K-Keep the Commandments
A-Always Remember Him
T-Take Upon His Name

I loved it!  Such a simple way of remembering what baptism is all about.  I'm so excited for Lane that she's getting baptized in just a few months.  Besides my sealing to Ryan, I think it was the most important decision I made and one I always cherish.

Summer Cuts

Addyson's hair has gotten so long and she needed a trim.  Bad.  She decided she wanted it short, so I asked a friend from church that I know cuts hair to cut it for her.  Lane wanted a bit of hers cut too so we trimmed maybe two inches.  I'm loving the way Addyson's turned out and I think she does, too!  It's gotten pretty warm lately so it was the perfect time to do it.

Mad Science Camp

I signed Lane up for a Mad Science camp this past week and she had so much fun.  She loves anything science, experiments, and figuring out how things work.  I knew she'd love this and she did.  She came home each day with something new she made, and on the last day she came home with a Light Saber.  Her Star Wars loving sister was pretty jealous!  I'm glad I found out about this camp, it's one we'll probably do again next summer.
