"Appy Otters Day..."

(...Or so Dallin calls it. :) He sure talks up a storm!! But still has a hard time pronouncing things right, and getting the exact words down... haha... Oh well- I understand his lingo perfectly fine. That's all that matters.)

I am so blessed to have so many great men in my life. My husband, dads, and grandpas! I wanted to at least give a shout out to all of them... (I wish I had pictures of all of them on my computer). Some people don't believe me when I say Dallin has 14 grandparents- all alive and well... But he really does! Here's just the grandpas: Grandpa Corry (Jeff's Dad), Grandpa Darrell (My step dad), Grandpa Alan (My dad), Grandpa Hefley, Papa Bill, Grandpa Emmett, Pop, and Grandpa Mike. We are very blessed to have such a great family. Happy Father's Day to all of you- We love you and are so glad you are all apart of our lives.

And especially to my "dads":
Dad- I love you. You have always been so supportive of me and have always helped me achieve all that I could. Thank you for always believing in me. I'm proud to have such a smart and talented dad like you. I also have a lot of your perfectionism traits- sometimes it can be annoying... haha but most of the time- its a great thing- thanks for that... :)

Darrell- I love you so much too. You stepped up to the plate and have been so good to us kids. I can talk to you about anything and you always give great support to Jeff and I. You're so good to mom, and I love that you can always make us laugh. I can't imagine my life without you now.

And to the most important man in my life: I want to tell you thank you for being such a great dad. Dallin loves you and really wants to be just like you- which explains him following you around everywhere when you're home and asking for you first thing in the morning. He's a little clone of you and I'm so glad... You are so wonderful to play with him, and teach him things about the gospel. Thank you for being such a great example to him... I hope you had a great Father's day. I love you with all my heart. And so does your son... :)

Jeff's Father's Day Breakfast
(*tip I learned: put pancake batter in a squirt/water bottle and draw designs/letters/shapes onto griddle*)

Cute pancakes! I am waiting on a bid for photoshop, then I'll start, I'm glad you put a link up for some more fun places....I really need to get going so I can get caught up! Don't worry though I'll need some major help when I do try and start, I'm not very patient at teaching myself!

Good job on the pancakes, that is such a cute idea! I'll have to remember to try that sometime (although I don't know if I'm that talented!) Looks like you guys had a fun Father's Day!
