Father's Day....

NPayne is a simple man....not simple in his frame of mind, but simple in his hobbies and activities; so for Father's Day....he chose to go to church, hang out with his family, give his buddy Finn (our dog) a bath, and eat homemade enchiladas which I did prepare for him.....
Each night at our dinner table, we say our blessing and then share our "Roses and Thorns".....good things and not so good things from the day! Our rule is everyone has to have rose, but you don't have to have a thorn. We always start with Elliot who will ALWAYS say her rose is "Mama or Daddy"....occasionally she will say someone else. Before our enchilada dinner, NPayne was sharing his roses.....Here are a few.... Elliot Ann
Bryna Mae
Drew Michelle
Callahan Leigh
Addison Jo.....
He also included his lovely wife...ahem....ME!
While NPayne bathed our beloved dog, some of us did the following.....
....played in the sprinkler....
....played in the sprinkler while swinging on one of our redneck tree swings....

....climbed a tree....

....swang on our porch swing....

....all while NPayne bathed our beloved Finn!
Isn't he a handsome dog? Australian Shepherds are the best!
NPayne and his roses!!!!!!!

And wouldn't ya know it, they even made the cover of our church's Father's Day bulletin!!! They needed a picture of a dad who had a daughter, and I said....."Well you've come to the right daddy!" Happy Father's Day!!
