Father's Day

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Father's Day yesterday honoring your dad and significant males in your life.  It is always bittersweet celebrating Father's Day for my family and I because my hubby's dad is no longer with us.  We are comforted in knowing that he is no longer suffering and is with God now.  It also brings us great comfort knowing that one day we will be reunited with him. In my family we give gifts to my kids' dad, grandfather, godfathers, uncles, and special "uncles" in their lives.  This is the tag that I made to attach the gift bag.

For Father's Day we honored my dad and BIL's a week early.  We had a BBQ at my sister and BIL's house.  My two BILs BBQed lamb and apricots.  We also had chicken feet, salad, and dessert.  (Sorry to gross some of you out with mentioning that we had chicken feet as part of our meal.) After dinner we took some pictures together.  Here is a picture of my sisters and I with our dad.

We all had a fun time celebrating together until my nephew came down with cold. It was so sad seeing his eyes get all watery.  He got very cranky too.  My hubby and I went out to get him some medication at a local drug store. While my hubby was getting the medication, I stopped by the Papyrus greeting card aisle.  I took some pictures of the cards that I like to get ideas when I am stumped with what to make for a card. A lady stopped and asked me why I am taking pictures of the cards. I explained to her why I was taking pictures and she told me that the cards I make must make people very happy. She asked me about how I make the cards and said that she hopes people appreciate the time that I put into making them. Before we went our separate ways we introduced ourselves to each other. I also thanked her for what she said to me and let her know that what she said made me very happy. My interaction with the nice lady helped remind me how blest I am to have the hobby of card making and am so grateful for how God has used it to minister to others and help me meet new people. Sorry for the slight detour with some extra time of sharing.  Okay now onto more Father's Day festivities. Yesterday my kids and I took my hubby out to dinner at one of our favorite Hawaiian Restaurants- Back Home in La Haina.  Our favorites are their HI nachos and  bacon fried rice and fried chicken.  Hawaiian style nachos and fried chicken tastes much better than the regular ones.

After dinner we went to pick up dessert at 85 Degrees.  Have a wonderful week and stay cool (especially if you live on the Mainland).  Until next time!
