Sunday Snapshot: {Father's Day}

Hey mom, do you remember what today is?  psst, it's Father's Day!

So OFTEN, he gets lost in the shuffle.  (sigh, and as I look at the pictures from this weekend, he was lost, yet, again)

The hot and humid weekend began on Saturday at Jadon's soccer tournament at UCF, which from previous hot and humid soccer tournament weekends we have experienced before, caused me to suffer and stay at home with Sydney and Jackson to shop clean.  Kurt and Jadon left the house at 6:45am.  Jadon's team won 2 and lost 2 which brought us to Sunday-10:00am game, win/lose determines the rest of the day.

That one 10am game kept us at the field until 1:30pm.  We enjoyed a little bit of


and soccer!

The heat is easier to beat because of Kurt who works hard to set up our tents and packs the cooler and bought a few

Frogg Toggs to help us poor lil' fans

to be able to cool off and not feel like

the soccer star!

Because it is HIS day, by the way, and we want him to enjoy Father's Day during the times when the kids act like

THIS!  Thanks to DAD!

And on Dad's Day, he was able to watch




And after he drove the "fun-bus" home  full of sleeping children and their  one-hot-sweaty mama,
we gave Daddy time to shower and rest.  And by then, it was time for his choice of dinner because it is HIS day, after all.

But, Mama had to sweet talk Daddy out of his favorite place to eat!
And even though it is Father's Day, Mama had her children to think about.

So, Daddy in all his sweetness, as usual, thought about the rest of us, on his day and instructed me to bring us here! 

Our local- sit down- Chinese restaurant.

But, we did do some standin' so that we could get these of our Daddy, since it is

Daddy with his lil' girl, Sydney!  She was only 5 days old on his very first Father's Day!
(and if we would have had a digital camera back then, I would have posted some great pictures of that!)

Daddy with his sweet and tenderhearted son, Jadon!

And Daddy with his lil' man, Jackson.  Now, otherwise known as, Action Jackson!

T-rouble with a CAPITAL T just waiting to happen!

And a LOT of LOVE goin' on here!

Jackson showed us that he's  still got it goin' on with the chopsticks!

We enjoyed a great meal of Beef Lo Mein, Mongolian Beef, Pineapple Chicken, Shrimp Lo Mein and Sweet and Sour Shrimp!  And everyone was happy, even Mama, especially since we didn't have to eat at Taco Bell!

We couldn't escape the hugs that Jackson likes to give to everyone!

(Even if strangers still think he's a gal!)

We headed out to the local

to pick up movies that Mama would end up, inevitably, sleeping through!

So, as Daddy, picked out movies for his day, I waited with the troops in the fun-bus, where


was causing the big kids to make such an uproar and leave

our lil' man questioning us crazy Americans!

Thank you, Kurt, for ALL that you do EVERYDAY to make our lives a little bit easier!  God has truly blessed our family with a wonderful, thoughtful, devoted, and loving husband and father! 
We love you!

Happy Father's Day!!!

Ni Hao Y'all
