Thinking About... Father's Day. SO grateful for Mike, he is an AMAZING father.  I cannot imagine doing this parenting thing alone.  He balances me out so much, especially when it comes to parenting...he adds the perfect joke in a tense moment, compassion in a time of strain and patience oh boy when I need it.  He always knows how to handle any situation with Gigi better then I...they get each other, which is beautiful...and I am so grateful!  He adores his son and is always wanting to hold him, feed him, change him and play with him.  Mike is a very hands on dad and it just makes my heart come alive all the more.  I love him and so blessed to call him ours.

(No, mike is not giving you the "look"...his eyes are really sensitive to the light, the downside of those blue eyes I many caption possibilities with this pic)

We had an amazing day. Mike usually knows it is the only day he can make me hike (I hate hiking!) and he knows I have to do it with a smile on my face, but this year he mixed it up and we did a family bike ride around the local lake, which was so much fun! We then got some lunch at a wings place where he could watch world cup soccer and golf simultaneously.  We wrapped up the night with a family bbq filled with games and yummy smores!

Watching... World Cup Soccer. Go USA!  Mike loves Soccer, oh I am sorry Futbol.  He played his whole life, including college, so he of course is super into it. Our lives for the next two weeks revolve around soccer and some game is always on the TV. Its fun. Its festive. We are all excited because Mike is excited =)

Listening to... Growling... Charlie, has this growl that he does now- deep, husky and forceful.. and I have noticed it usually is when he wants something.  It is very Caveman-esque of him. It kills me.

Thankful For... My Parents. They will celebrate 32 years of marriage this month, wow that is incredible! This weekend we (my family and my brothers family) surprised them and hosted a small anniversary dinner party for them in my backyard, and it was a beautiful evening.  I have always wanted to host an elegant small dinner party in our backyard and so excited after being in my house for 5 years I finally was able to! It was magical. It was perfect.  The whole night not only looked beautiful, but flowed nicely and most importantly my parents felt honored and loved. They are two amazing people and their marriage is such a witness of God's love, we are very blessed to have them in our lives!

What about you? What are you CURRENTLY up to?
