Celebrating wonderful fathers

Just finished another busy Father's Day weekend. Last night my sister and family came down to Portland, and we went to Mom & Dad's house for stir fry (and pizza for the kids). Here's my dad--under the blanket with Nick--as the cousins are arriving.

The more boys, the more fun!
Today started off with Mike going off to church to deliver a Father's Day message at both services--talk about sacrifice! He talked about his wonderful father and the other men in his life (notably my dad and our brother-in-law, David) who have also been great fathering role models for him.

Then we went to Mom & Dad's for a chicken curry lunch and to continue celebrating the dads. Fortunately the weather was nicer today, so the boys could play outside (always a blessing with six boys)!

(white chocolate with mango topping)

Nicholas loves his Uncle Stephen!
We're all delighted to be seeing more of Stephen lately

Trying to get a good shot of Grandpa with five (squirmy) boys and one teenager!

Second try

Third try
Fourth try
(and we're losing Nick...)

No hope of corralling all three boys for a photo with Dad,
 but Kieran obliged!
