Father's Day

Father's Day was fantastic this year, in large part because it was Stake Conference, which meant a few things:
1. We had church at 10:00 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m., which meant we had time for more than cold cereal for breakfast. (We would have slept in, too, but Reed, Asher, and Lila wouldn't allow it.) And blueberries were at the dollar store the day before, so we had homemade blueberry muffins! Yum.
2. I didn't have any meetings before church!
3. I didn't have any primary visits after church, so we got to spend the entire day together!
4. Our stake conference was seriously amazing. Not that it isn't always great, but our kids were quite well-behaved this time around and we got to listen to all the speakers!

In addition to the goodness of stake conference, my dad had a speaking engagement in Vegas, so we got to spend some time with Grandma and Grandpa. As you can see, Lila was the most excited to have them visit:

The boys each made a card for Ryan. Reed also made a bracelet out of a pipe cleaner and beads--his own design. We collaborated on a project that coordinates with the gift Ryan and the kids gave to me for Mother's Day, both of which will hopefully soon have a home in our room:

We gave my dad neon exercise clothes for his birthday (which is two days after Father's Day), per his request. (I was surprised, too.) The shirt was so soft the boys kept rubbing their heads against it.

And his Father's Day gift was a little surprise...
