father's day & hummingbirds

Emma got John a Popeye shirt and a onesie (for her to wear) that says "I <3 Daddy", and I got him a hummingbird feeder. We were so excited to see that the birds have found it!

We stretched Father's Day into a weekend event with John opening presents here on Saturday before we drove over to Indianapolis. Everyone was at the Smillie's except Brian who had to work on Sunday.
It was a fun and relaxed day and a half. The guys enjoyed hours of fishing in the retention pond Saturday and Sunday, and John tried to reaquaint me with a fishing pole (I've got quite a way to go before I can be called a fisherwoman!).
Some of the guys went shooting (Evan got a new scope and they needed to sight it in). We swam in a friend's pool. It was a quiet few days, but so very enjoyed.

Somehow the camera never came out of its case the entire time we were there, so I don't have any pictures to share. I'm planning to take one soon of John and Emma in their new shirts. They look so very cute. :)

So wonderful! That will be nice for you to watch the birds. Birds are God's little "cheer-up"-ers!

Love, Mom

p.s. never mind that hummingbirds fight like crazy. just turn your head.
