Father's Day Basketball . . . Kind of

 The girls got a little upset when they saw just how hard it would be for them to get the balls through my grandparents' basketball standard, so Dana made a more realistic goal by holding a hula hoop.
 They loved this, and someone took super cute pictures.

 This was a huge hit of a game.  Dana is a smart cookie!

Just Some People That Mean an Awful Lot to Me

 Grandma Wallace and my Mom
 Mom and Heather.  Wonderful women.  I am blessed.

Grandma Wallace.  Pillar of strength -- don't let that tiny stature fool you!
 Grandpa Wallace.  Those smile lines are no lie. 
 Mi Amor.  I will spend my life trying to feel like I deserve him.
 Caulene- love the shades!  This girl is an amazing aunt and sister. 
 Dana- she's not usually this serious, but she is always beautiful
 Dad- for good or bad, I am definitely his daughter.

Reading at Grandma Wallace's House

 I have a gazillion pictures from Father's Day at my Grandma's house because my sisters took the phone.  I love when they do that!  To keep from a hug post with all the pictures at once and avoid being e-yelled at, I will split them up as best as I can.  Here are some cute shots of my girls reading some of the same books I enjoyed at my Grandma's house as a child.  It makes my heart happy to see how much they love reading. :)
 Poor Emma gets super red in the face after any tiny amount of physical exertion- just like her mother.  Some of my genes are pretty obnoxious...
 Grandpa started making up a story about Sara in an effort to make friends with her.  She tried so hard not to pay any attention, but it got too hard in the end.

 Grandpa: Sara is a bunny who hates to eat chocolate because it makes her sad!
Sara: No, that is not right!
Grandpa: Well it has to be, it says so right here.
 It worked pretty well until Emma pointed out that Grandpa wasn't reading the right words.
