Father's Day!

This is going to be short and sweet. Well MY short and sweet, so really not short at all...

Dustin was able to have this weekend off for Father's Day. Can I get a Hallelujah?! He just finished working an 18 plus evening side jobs. So he wasn't getting home until 10pm every night. Kinda sucked. But we are grateful he has all this work so we can prepare for school!

So anyways... We made him an omelet and bacon for breakfast, went to church, came home and had smoothies and popcorn for a late lunch, hung out, opened his gifts, (I got him some new shorts and flip flops, super exciting I know) and then we had a BBQ. I marinated some steaks, had corn on the cob because he's from Taber and loves his corn on the cob, potatoes and had hot dogs for the children, since they couldn't even look at the steaks. Not sure where they got their picky-ness from.... well maybe I do, but whatever.
Oh also right before opening the gifts I had each of the girls say what they loved the most about Daddy,
We got,
"He tucks me in at night"
"He plays with us"
"He gets me food"
"He takes me to the doctor" (Jayci- she has been sick a lot with her tonsils lately and she might have to get them and her adenoids taken out, she got an x-ray done today on them and we'll find out on Friday)

Super cute.

Kyla made Dustin a paper at school, kind of like those little surveys you see and it asked what he weighed, she said 300lbs. (almost) It also asked something Dad says to you, and she put, "Let's go to bed K.Y." ....
Oh man. Remember when he used to call her KY because she was learning to spell her name and we would always say it, Dustin decided to just shorten it to KY. This was when she was like 2. So after a while I said, maybe you should stop calling her that, it doesn't sound the best. ha. So he did, and for some reason now she remembers and tells EVERYONE her nickname that her Dad calls her... So awesome. I can only imagine what her teachers think at school.
So that was our day! Low key and relaxed, which is what we never get when Dustin's off. So it was so nice. I also had a nap on the couch for him and he rubbed my feet. Such a great Father's day. I'm pretty much the best wife.

We love him and he really is the BEST Dad! How can he not be when he is still pretty much a kid! I don't think this guy will ever grow up. The girls love it. Here are some pics from the day!

Like Father Like Daughter...
Dustin says something was wrong with his eyes and he couldn't open them, I told him to suck it up.

Opening gifts

And my personal favorite...

Oh I can't forget to give a shout out to my own Dad. I love you so much, you are my favorite dad. ;) Happy Fathers Day!!
