World's Greatest Dad

Well of course we all think that we have the greatest Dad's but I truly am so grateful for my dad and also what an amazing dad my wonderful husband is. I am so grateful for him and everything he does for our family. He is such a special person and really is World's Greatest Dad!! I love him so much and so do his kids. I asked each of them why they thought Ryan was the best dad and this was their responses.

Brinley.....I like to jump on the tramp with him. I like to snuggle with him. I like that he is a good dad. We like to go on bike rides. I love you daddy!!

Bailey.....He helps me learn the gospel. I just think he is the greatest daddy in the world. I love him to infinity and beyond!! I am thankful for him because he goes to work so he can take care of me.

It was fun for me to hear their responses and quite impressed with some of the things they said.

I think Ryan is a good dad because he sincerely cares for our girls. He is also a very active dad and is always finding fun things to do with them. As a lot of you know he is a very spiritual person and has taught all of us so many things. I feel the same way towards my own dad. He is so laid back and can always make me laugh. He has helped me overcome many trials in my life and has always been there to support us. So I love you both and I hope you have a HAPPY HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!!!!

Farewell David Family

I am sad to admit that Jon will be leaving in a couple of days and Sarah and Rocco a week after that. We have had such a fun time with them. It was great to see Rocco for the first time. What a handsome man he is!! Kathryn planned a little get together for Jon's birthday which was great. It reminded me of the good old days. We had a bbq and then everyone came to our house for some Rockband. I have never laughed so hard in my life. Back in the day they recorded themselves in their undies pretending to be in a band so we were hoping to get a remix of that. As you can see in the one picture Jon did take his shirt off but that's the closest we got. It has just made me realize how grateful I am for our friends. Even though they are far away they hold a special place in our hearts. So thanks to Jon, Sarah, and Rocco for the last couple of weeks. It has been so much fun to spend time with you guys!

Ol' Hood Reunion

Bus Adventure

What a fun day we had!!! We started it off with a ward party which was fun and had great food! Then we took the kids to First Dam and let them feed the ducks. From there we went to Ryan's Place Park which is a playground that some parents built in honor of their son that passed away. It is a really neat park and has lots of fun things. Then after that we all rode the LTD bus up to Aggie Ice Cream for an ice cream cone and then home again. It was a long but adventurous day!!

School & Soccer Come to an End

Well I have so much to catch up on. The weekend of Memorial Day Ryan's family came up and we had a blast. We met up with Keven's family at the Logan Cemetery and then went to Keven's sisters house for lunch. The girls had so much fun because Ryan's cousin Joel has adopted three of the cutest little boys and the girls just adore them so they were in heaven. And I must admit I was as well. Then we went to the Plymouth, Clarkston, and Orem cemetery to see all of Ryan's great grandparents graves. It was a lot of fun to hear the stories his mom and dad had to tell about them. Sunday we went to Aaron and Tracey's house for dinner and to visit. Tracey fixed a yummy dinner that she was used to having back home in Zimbabwe. She made Yorkshire pudding which was my favorite!!! It was so good!!! I am a picky eater and I loved it. We hated to see them all go home but were grateful for all the fun we had together. I have been a little stressed out with life lately so it was just what I needed. Then that Wednesday the girls had their last soccer game. I was sad to see it end. They have just loved playing this year and we have loved watching them. School has also come to an end for Bailey now as well. They had a little play in their class on Thursday which was just adorable. She just loved her teacher this year and was sad to leave the last day. But we are definitely ready for summer!!!!
