Happy Father's day to all those wonderful dads. We celebrated with a bacon pancake breakfast and then opened presents. We put together a card for Tim each taking a turn of telling him why we love him. This is what the children said....."you are funny," from McCabe. "You are nice," from Jacinda. "You work," from Xadia. "You like hot cocoa and quesadillas," from Teagan. Of course that last one is what Teagan likes not Tim. Tim also got a can of peanuts and a home-made M&M necklace. The boys got bubbles and a home-made candy bar necklace. Teagan ate his before church. He was really quick at swallowing the chocolate.
June 19th, was our 16 year wedding anniversary. What does that bring? Let me tell you. It brings 4 kids, gray hair, stress wrinkles, and a whole lot of memories. I feel very fortunate to be married to Tim. Marriage is a great union with the right person. I love him more today than when we first met. He is an amazing individual. I cannot believe how caring he is to me and those around him. It is very rare that he puts himself first. Wow! I really lucked out. How did I get so lucky? Divine intervention. I credit God with this one.
So what did we do to celebrate 16 years of marriage? We took the family to "Inside Out," a movie by Disney. It was very cute. I loved the part where dream boy says, "I would die for Riley," as he waves a dramatic hand in front of his face and then makes a fist. Disney did a good job on that movie. It was very entertaining and very relatable. After the movie, we went to the mall and looked around. We had to walk off all the popcorn we ate. Once the kids got hungry we ate at a Chinese buffet in Murray. The food was decent. The kids were in heaven. They could eat all the food/junk they wanted. McCabe loved the imitation crab. Jacinda went for seconds on the ice cream and Xadia could not stop raving about the pumpkin pie. I enjoyed a salad with some ham fried rice. It was a tasty combination. Teagan could not sit still. He kept running around the table. Thanks goodness he is only 3 and can get away with that type of behavior. Tim did not comment on what he liked. He just kept stacking plates full of food. On the way home, he was getting ready to go into a food coma. He kept saying, "I am so full." When he goes into a food coma he just needs to go to sleep because he is too full to do anything else. So that is how we celebrated our anniversary. It was a good day.
