We celebrated Fathers Day this year in Oak Creek with our extended families.
The weather was absolutely perfect and we sat outside on the deck at my sisters house enjoying each others company.
My dad is eighty eight this year and it is getting harder for him to get around but he was out and enjoying the day as well. My brother in love Earl and my baby sister Gen kept him entertained.
My niece, her husband and their boys.
The generations were there in force and there was lots of laughter, fun and love being shared.
Tom was recruited to cook the brats and dogs. Everyone brought a dish to share and we all ate too much.
Here is a picture of four of the sisters with mom and dad.
A day together would not be complete without a game of Farkel.
These are the things that we miss living so far away. How do you put a value on the laughter and stories shared on these occasions? Watching our children interact with grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins is so amazing. Watching their children learning to play together and build relationships
within the family is even more amazing. We are richly blessed.
