Happy Daddy's Day!

Happy Daddy's Day to the men in my life. I am blessed to have a great dad who continues to help me out and is a fun grandpa. I have a wonderful brother-in-law who is not only a good daddy, but, as Kadie told me, "Uncle Patrick is really nice." And best of all, my Brian is a wonderful daddy who truly enjoys spending time with his girls and teaches them all sorts of interesting things.

The Big Pothole Tour

WOW!! Look's like a painting, but it's not. We had the wonderful opportunity recently to take a family trip to the Big Pothole (a.k.a. Grand Canyon). It is truly a breathtaking sight. My parents took the entire family on a one week trip to see Carlsbad Caverns (also incredible) and the Grand Canyon. That equals six adults and eight children. It was a great trip and we made lots of memories and stories!

We now know what emergency room to avoid in Phoenix (thanks Brian!), that a three-year-old boy can pee in a cup traveling at 70 mph without fuss, that two eight-year-olds can be noisier than all of the other kids combined and that next time - with all of the electronics we took - we could travel with our very own wifi network.
