June 20th---a very fun day!

My photo skills were intermittent,at best, the last week or so. We've had several fun visitors and I neglected to get the camera/cell phone out quick enough. Cousins Clyda and Fred Brackburn were here--love them. And we were THRILLED that nephew Cody Parks came from Phoenix. It was so good to see him. I'm hoping Memzy got a shot of him and will post.

I did, however, take some pretty good shots yesterday. Cris had a really great Father's Day thanks to his very special kids and grand kids. We Skyped, we sang, we heard special piano compositions (thanks Riley).

We heard poetry--CharChar and all kinds of gifts.

Special thanks to Nick for driving from Vegas to spend 1/2 a day with his dad for Father's Day and them driving right back. After all the dust had settled last night he smiled and said, "Such a good day".

Every five or six years Father's Day falls on June 20th. It depends on if it is a leap year whether it's five or six years (according to Google). And June 20th is Memzy's birthday which means that this phenomenon has happened 6 or 7 times in Memzy's lifetime. You do the math. That torch on top of her cake just means she's super loved.
It's time for a "Graham report". Let the photos begin. Riley is a prime candidate to begin babysitting and I have a feeling that Graham would love it. Six week old--15-16 lbs.

Memzy has the magic touch. Him is very happy.

I like to call this one "Full to the brim".

His mommy loves him. . . .and he's pretty much the center of everyone's universe these days.

Can you smell his little baby head? There's nothing like it . . . .sigh.

I bet Memzy is the best Father's Day present UV ever received! Looks like you guys had a blast.
Graham is so sweet! Loved the "full to the brim" picture.

I feel like reaching for a fire extinguisher after seeing that cake! How OLD is she anyway???

Such a fun Father's Day too. How lucky you are to have so much family around! Can't wait to see you soon!

This was a wonderful post. Love your "loving" family, Carol. Thanks, especially for the Graham pictures. He is so much like his Daddy. Our love to you and Cris.
