"Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad." -Anne Geddes
The kids and I love having Haldan around more. Tonight we skipped soccer practice and went out to the Coralville Reservoir. It was a beautiful day and I'm not sure we'll have another one of these again anytime soon -sunny and a high of 64 degrees. Haldan and the kids did a little fishing and then we had a BBQ. Haldan has got to be the most patient Dad around with all the snags the kids managed to get. There were tons of seagulls there today and the colors are just starting to turn. It was gorgeous and I ended up with too many photos to choose from. The purse that Pokey is wearing is actually the CTR purse that Aunt Kirstina got her for her birthday. I thought you'd like to know that she carries it almost everywhere these days and it's become her "first aid kit". She's pretty cute. If it wasn't for all the whining at this age "eight" might be my favorite year for her. And no, we did not get a golden retriever. I didn't even know I photographed him until Haldan saw him in the photo. I decided to leave him in because it's kinda funny.
