I Think It Was Father's Day


Hey does anybody remember that it was father's day on Sunday?

I do.

I remember it as if it were yesterday, the children were laughing, the soft breeze was warm and inviting, and the sun was shining casting reflections of blinding light off of my dad's bald head.




It was the perfect day.


The fam met at my brother's house to celebrate the man that helped borned us all. My cutie pa-tootie papa!




Yes we gathered to celebrate our bald hunka hunka very old dad, but our attention seemed to shift, as always, to the two mini hunka hunka babes.






But of course my dad was fine with that, in fact, he was the biggest culprit.




Here are our two hosts, my brother and his wife. Aren't the back of their heads just beautiful?




And here we have my brother, again, and my little sis Lin. Don't let those serious faces fool ya, they are not smart. Nope, not at all.




And this is the baby of my siblings, Alyse, and she's only smart when she wears her glasses.




And here is my niece Kelsi, she has blond hair and wears bright blue bracelets. She enjoys long walks on the beach and would love to not work at Target.




And this is my nephew Jake, he eats potato chips and wears black hats. He enjoys playing video games and would love to play video games.




And the cutest ones of the day are:

Logan! My nephew, Lin's baby boy. He enjoys playing with trucks, singing his abc's, and pooping on my carpet.








And last but definitely not least, Brolin! He is my brother's child and he enjoys mountain biking, reading the newspaper in the morning and golfing in the afternoon.




He also enjoys doing push ups in the grass.






And sorry ladies, but this one is taken. I've already arranged his marriage to Karin Katherine's beautiful daughter so don't even think about it!




Oh yeah, Bert and I were there too, here we are. We are the smart ones.






Isn't he dreamy?




Oh yeah, this was father's day, I forgot for a second. Back to Dad.




As you can see, he is very good looking. Not only that but he is the kindest person I know. He cares about his kids so much and would do anything for us. He just bought a new house and we are all so excited for him! And he is so excited because there is a sandbox in the backyard for his grandkids.

Especially Kelsi and Jake, I'm sure they love sand boxes.



I Love you Dad!

HAHA. "I remember it like it was yesterday" Actually, the whole, "serious faces/not smart" comments, and the 'he likes to eat potatoe chips ect.' was way awesome.

Your family is hot. Want a semi-hot-ish addition? I'll be a fun sister. I'll even let Logan poop on my carpet, because, well, with the dayhome,, who's gonna notice a bit of more poop!?

Push-ups in the grass always gets the girls. It's how I met my husband.

Julia said...

What a sweet day. Our highlight was replacing the water heater. Ok Daddy Mike, get your work clothes on, you've got a job to do...

Thank goodness someone else had fun. :)

But I did make tri-tip on the BBQ and I think it made everything OK again.

Lizz said...

Your baby's simples are so freakin delicious!

WhisperingWriter said...

How sweet.

There are beautiful people in your family. Everyone looks like they stepped out of Vogue or something. Well, I guess the kids would step out of Parents magazine...I don't think Vogue has babies in it.

Thank God I visited your blog on this post, Poob. I have been stunned into action.

First, I would like to highlight my eternal love for you and your family. As I have stated in many, many previous comments, you and I are destined to be neighbors. However, imagine my surprise tonight when I read that the darling Brolin is betrothed to another. I checked out her blog, Poob. She seems nice, but have you seen my little girl? She may be a bit older than Brolin, but it would definitely be a match made in heaven.

Think about it and get back to me. You know I would fit right in as a member of your family.

-Francesca

PS: Bert?!

Jon and Steph said...

Your dad is one hunk of a man!!!
And your nieces and nephews are so incredibly precious! You have a beautiful family!

Karin Katherine said...

SWEET----especially the written contracted blog proof I have that we have an arranged marriage deal.

You and your hubby are so darn cute. I am just dying for you to have babies already. I think I'm going to transfer my baby lust over to you. Instead of ME wishing for MORE babies and whining to my hubby WHY can't we have more babies, I'm going to wishing for you to have some.

hmmm, but then I'd probably want to marry off another child into that gorgeous family so that my child could have the cool inlaws too and I'm running out---so I guess we BOTH need to have babies....

Okay, when Big Daddy wakes up he is really in for it now!

Debbie said...

What a sweet post. Your family looks great. What a perfect grandfather to buy a house with a sandbox!

aditi said...
