Father's Day.

While I'm not a huge fan of manufactured holidays, I've come to realize how thankful I am for that little day on the calendar set aside to celebrate fathers.  My ultimate goal, of course, is for Ben to feel that we honor and celebrate him and what he does for our family every day, but it's still nice to have a little built-in time every June.

We played it pretty low-key this year and simply enjoyed being together as much as possible.  The morning started, of course, with the gifts.  Harris really, really wanted to purchase one of the following things for Ben:  a new police car, tools to fix a police car, a real hammer, or a hammer that Ben could use to hit himself in the face.  Instead, we went with a screen cover for the ipad and a few pairs of Ben's favorite Banana Republic boxers.

I think everyone was fairly pleased.  Except for Babe, that is...some days she doesn't really dig picture taking.

We spent the morning at church, the afternoon napping, and the evening indulging in Chinese takeout, burning some calories on the swingset, and building some policeman legos...all things our Daddy is pretty good at doing.

Happy, Happy Father's Day, Ben!  Thank you for loving us!!  We love you all the way to the moon and back!
