~Father's Day June 19th ~

For Father's Day we went by Russell's parent's house...forgot to take the camera in...Dork. We had a good visit with Mom and Dad Holmes and two of Russell's brother's families.

Then we went to my Sister Karen's house in Riverside. We had a great BBQ potluck...great food. Then after dinner, we went outside and sat around their family's portable fire pit, and took a great opportunity to spend some reminiscent time with our Dad, Grampa, Great Grampa, Warren Pitt. Growing up for our Summer vacations we most often went camping, and when we went we would sit around the campfire, and sing the funnest, and funniest campfire songs. We did a little recreating this experience. Karen had her son Mike videotape our time together. We laughed as we tried to remember the words, order of verses...and exposing some of our memories to our kids.
Of course we spent wonderful times holding our grandbabies, and loving them and getting new pics of them. Harley, sweet Harley ~ 4 months old.Karen has great fruit trees and the ladder was out for orange picking. Kennedy took the chance to go up, up, up. When her 6'5" daddy throws her up in the air all the time, heights are no problem. Dad took a call from Steve and Cheryl, since they were with their newlywed daughter opening her gifts. Henry was having a good time with Aunt Randi...And Karen was sharing snuggle and singing time with her grandbaby Ethan...We ended with making S'mores as well. Since Jordan looked like he was enjoying his so much..his Kennedy gave the sticky dessert a try, and came over with dirt and grass attached to her marshmallow covered skin.
Courageously, at the coaxing of Breana...I will now show you what it looks like when I fed my Henry some "Mallow" while his momma was inside, then trying to take a picture of his cute face, I put my s'more in my mouth, not thinking about the end result...so...ain't we a pair!!Great way to celebrate our dads, our family, and the love we share.

I saw your comment on Maries' postabout the porch party and just had to stop by. Sounds like you're living the dream she wrote about, all your family close by, family get togethers. How wonderful for you!

What a fun day....and what great pictures. I just love the one with Kennedy looking at her little sticky, grassy hand. So precious!
I am glad that you had such a nice day with your dear family.
Sheryl please read my blog I posted today. I would really appreciate it if you and the Bishop would pray for me. I am a bit taken back by this new development and really dreading the surgery. Thanks for your support. Hugs, Lura
