Father's Day Weekend

We started Father's day on Saturday this year and headed to the cabin for the day. Not really to celebrate the day, just to have some family fun on such a beautiful warm sunny day. Jer and Lucy spent a lot of time in the water and on the dock. Here they are fishing. If you look closely, you can see Lucy's little hand pushing Jer's hand away. I can just hear her saying "I want to do it All By Myself'".
Here is Jer doing the total dad thing. He has Ellen in the Baby Bjorn while still fishing with Lucy.
I'm going to need a net this big for my fish!
Jer and Lucy Chillin.
Warming up on the dock after swimming.
Lucy - gathering cups for her tea party.
Lucy - exploring the inside of a stick.
Taking a little rest.
Here we are, getting a little snack ready.
Mommy and Ellen.
Ellen, relaxing on the porch (getting the full cabin experience).

We were joined later in the day by Emily, Ali, Kim & Grandma Kobie. Here is Emily getting ready to go swimming.
Of course, Lucy had to try.
And Allie too!
Fun in the sun.

We were back home for church the next day. We had planned on going to pick strawberries with some friends after church, but we got rained out. We decided to try to get some family pictures at the end of the day. You all know how that goes. Her are Jer and Lucy pretending to cry, since that is all Ellen was doing. At least they could all be the same. . .
We were using the timer on my camera, so we got a lot like this:
This was the best one we got. I'll continue to work on my dream of a 'nice family picture'.

Happy Father's Day Jer! Thanks for being such a great Dad for our girls.
