Fathers Day.....

Fathers day went as good as it could have.....had mom and dad, and my brother and michelle over....we cooked up two giant pans of lasagna....after we ate we went outside and lil' mikey was our entertainment ....here Gitta and Duke (my brothers dog) get to know each other...
Until Gitta finally said "hell to the no" Gitta thinks he's a big ol' dog...doesn't realize this dog could kick is flabby but....yeah..I said flabby...look at his lil pooch...( I feel your pain)
caught these cuties on the porch swing....
I kept teasing mikey about his cute mandals....
and our new entertainment is we all chant for mikey to jump!! and then he does...I love this picture where I caught his little feet in the air...as he was jumping for our entertainment...
and had to get a picture of the father....too...with me and my baby brother..
after everyone left me and sommer headed to the cemetary...we picked up a couple balloons...and wrote stuff all over them...
Sommers first balloon popped in the car......it broke her heart...but I finally got her to come out and wrote a message on Tonee's balloon...(note to self bring an extra balloon next time) there was something really beautiful about watching the balloons disappear into the clouds......and when I started writing on mine....I couldn't stop...so much to say.....I really felt like he was waiting for them....sommer finally had to stop me...I probably needed a couple balloons...
and the headstone didn't make it to his spot...but we stopped by the shed to see it....I really like the way it turned out....just need to get it to it's spot....
