The Primary kids in the Tahoe ward sang during sacrament meeting, and they invited any visiting kids to join them. I was proud of Noah and Luke for marching up there and doing their best, even though they didn't even know the song. Who sings anything besides "I'm so glad when Daddy comes home" on Father's Day??? Well, this ward did, but it didn't matter. Those smiley boys were a little bit brave and did something unfamiliar, which I just love about them. They are almost always willing to give something a try.
After giving their best smiles with Dad, the boys wanted some pictures of their own. They gave me their best angry and happy faces.
When we were preparing for this trip, Nate suggested making a dutch oven dinner that we hadn't had in years. It's more his 'thing' than mine, so even though it was Father's Day he did the cooking. That afternoon is quite possible one of my most favorite Sundays ever. We spent hours just like this.
And I can't forget the swinging.
Dinner did not disappoint! Nate made a fantastic roast with summer vegetables. When we were finished I looked over at Luke and saw a first: asleep at the dinner table!
Luke has an 'all in' personality. He is almost always running somewhere. After days of playing hard and keeping up with everyone older than him, sleep finally won him over.
After a little nap and more relaxing for all of us we headed back outside for dessert: s'mores!
