June 17th was Father's Day and we had fathers a plenty.
I started the day by going to church with Grandma & Grandpa Herbert. I'm not sure if Mr. Diebold has any kids or not but I know he has dogs which makes him a father in this family! Father Count: 1
Then of course there's GpaH. He's a father to three and a Grandfather to 5.5... but that apparently isn't enough to get me to put down my cookie for a photo opp!

After church, G&G H and I met Aunt Abby, Mom and Dad back out our house for a father's day brunch. Dad is a father to 3.5 (of course I'm counting my two older and one younger sisters) Father count: 3
Ooops, I'm told we don't have any footage of brunch - but Mom made Egg Casserole (and I think I ate more than anyone) and GmaH brought over a Strawberry Pie from Tippins. I don't know what a "Tippins" is but they know (or knew) pie, that's for sure.

For dinner we met Grandma & Grandpa Davenport for dinner over at Aunt Darcy & Uncle Dave's. GpaD is a father to three (including Aunt Lil') and a Grandfather to 5.5. Uncle Dave is a father of 1 2 now! Father count: 5
This is AD&UD's new addition, Cooper. He was very nice to my sisters and me and was always interested in whatever we were doing. I resemble that!
Here's a picture of GpaD and I while he opened the card from me. For those not in the know, I refer to GpaD as 'Pop-Pop' (and GpaH as 'Gran-Pop') and I actually found a 'Pop-Pop' card for Father's Day. And better still? It had frogs on it which of course I love as well. It may have been the most perfect card ever... so I guess it's all down hill from here.

I'm always trying to get Penny to sit and sleep with me and that evening I made room for her on my chair outside and she hopped up. I literally could not have been happier!

To help keep the bugs away, AD lit some citronella candles. Fire = Fascinating! It's like people don't know how neat fire looks because I got told a number of times not to get too close. Uh, but then I can't see as well. Where's the fable??

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
