Happy Fathers Day!

Happy Father's Day all you dads out there!

Come to think of it, are there any dads out there reading this blog? If so, CHIME IN! Lemme know you're out there! This way, I might occasionally throw in a sports analogy JUST FOR YOU.

Today was great. First off, my prayer was answered! The girls all slept in till...

wait for it...

... are you waiting?

9:30 am! WOOHOO! That was AWESOME!

Then, if that weren't good enough, ang took the girls into the living room and let me just veg in the bed watching the World Cup, and brought me coffee and breakfast in bed... ON A PLATTER! Okay, okay, it was a breakfast in bed tray, but who cares? HOW AWESOME IS MY WIFE???

Then, we went downstairs for a nice Father's Day brunch provided here at the house. The girls then napped for a while. I just watched more World Cup in bliss. After they awoke, we went to the Stone Arch Festival of the Arts in the Riverfront District of Minneapolis. My friend Logan tipped me off to it, and it showed us a whole other cool part of the city we didn't yet know about. We didn't stay for too long because it was really hot out today, and Bella was just roasting in her long sleeve onesie and long tights, not to mention all 4 extremities bound and wrapped and a giant girdle around her midsection holding her Hickman in place safely. Nevertheless, it was really fun; we got some fresh mini donuts that reminded us of Pike Place Market in Seattle. Ang bought a beautiful necklace, and Ali got her face painted. Good times were had by all.

We then hit Target only to cross paths with... the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile on the way out! What an awesome combination of engineering and marketing. I wanted to go inside so bad! I wanna party inside the wiener mobile! That doesn't sound good, but who cares. It looks FUN!

You KNOW you wanna ride...

We came home and raided the kitchen for more yummy leftovers from Friday night - whole wheat pasta with turkey meatballs with cucumber/tomato/dill salad - (nobody eats the healthy left overs around here... better for us!) and played around in our place till bedtime. Nice and mellow. Just the right speed going into this coming week.

Drop in on our other EB friends' blogs. Baby Daylon started his BMT one week ahead of us; please send lots of prayers his way as the chemo drugs are really hitting him h-a-r-d. Baby Rafi is back in the hospital with a fever, so please pray for her as well. Baby Jonah is still working on feeding issues, and baby Tripp is dealing with eye issues. They all need all our prayers. Please take time to visit their blogs and hear their stories. They will inspire and touch your hearts. There are two sides to the Epidermolysis Bullosa coin. Pain & suffering are on one side, and gratitude & inspiration is on the other. You'll see both sides of the coin play out in each of our stories, but that's what makes life worth living. Thank YOU for living our story with us. We are better for it with you in our life.

Blessings to you.
