First, let me say I hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day! I hope you enjoyed celebrating your earthly father &/or saying an extra “thank you” to your heavenly Father.
Our morning started with Aaron off to church to serve in the Clubhouse (preschool age kids) and I took my time getting ready for the day. Once the girls were up, it was breakfast and getting them ready for church.
After we said “good morning” to Daddy, I dropped the girls off in their classrooms then met Aaron in the hall and we headed into service.
As is custom at Highlands on a holiday like this one, they Creative Team made a short video to celebrate the dads. It had the whole auditorium laughing, so I hope you watch it 😀
When service was over, Aaron helped me pick the girls up. I couldn’t help but snag a picture of my favorite man with his girls.
Shaver girls are all smiles over their daddy today & everyday 😄 they love him so much! 💕 He is an incredible dad to them & I am honored to have him as a teammate 💥
As a Father’s Day gift, I took my father-in-law out to ice cream at Dairy Queen. We had some good conversation but we mainly just talked about Rylie 😛
Then we went over to my in-law’s house where I cared for the girls while dinner got started. I also FaceTimed by brother and got to say “Happy Father’s Day” to my dad.
Before we knew it, it was time for dinner – Greek chicken, green beans, salad and corn. We also watched Now You See Me 2. Emmaline was either eating or napping while Rylie was a bundle of energy per usual and was hopping from couch to couch sitting next to me, Aaron, or my in-law’s.
When Aaron and I got home, I showed him the piece of paper that Rylie scribbled on with crayons and the photo of the two of them I had taped on top. I had gotten him a gift, but he accidentally opened it when it came earlier in the week. When I came home from work and saw it opened on the table, I said, “I see you got your Father’s Day gift!?” he replied, “OH MY GOSH – I am so sorry! I love it though!” 😛
Before bed, I sent him the link to the letter I wrote him on the blog so he could read it. He deeply thanked me for what I had written and I told him it was the least I could do.
Overall, it was a great day and such a joy to honor the father’s in our lives.
