We won!

Jacob and Madelyn had a friend to spend the night on Friday night. Connor came over with Jacob and Jenna with Madelyn. Jenna had to go home so Madi called Elle to come spend the day and Saturday night. Before the big game on Saturday we took the kids to Pinos.

Trophy number one....for winning the tournament

Getting trophy number 2 for being the number one teamThe coach got dunked!
Very exciting to be a part of the winning team. Jacob did not get to play a whole lot this year...his first year of Broncos but he certainly learned ALOT and he made some new friends. He's already talking about fall ball. I'm so proud of Jacob for being a good sport!

Tears and Joy

First the tears… This happens to be the second Father’s Day for me without my dad. It makes me sad because I don’t have a dad here on earth to wish a happy Father’s Day. I know he is now without pain and he’s not suffering and that makes me happy, but I would love to be able to hear his voice one more time and tell him that I love him. I have tons of memories of my dad. The fondest ones were of us fishing together. I was always the one to catch the first fish and it was usually the biggest one. He would brag on me so much because I was the only girl with TONS of boy cousins. As I drove home today from church…I heard one of the songs that we played at my dad’s funeral. It’s called Cadillac Kind. My daddy never was the Cadillac Kind for sure. He was a very simple man…it didn’t take much to please him at all. It’s exciting to know that now he’s with his Father in heaven and he has everything he needs and desires. I love you daddy!

My dad with his grandkids...old pic...but I like it b/c all grandkids are in it

Now for the joy! I have an amazing husband and my children have an amazing dad. I’m so glad that I have a man that loves his family. Travis always puts me and the kids first. He always thinks of us and never himself. He’s a dad that hates to miss anything that our children do. He’s a dad that will spend his last dollar so that his children can have what they want and most importantly what they need. When our kids hurt….he hurts too. I’m very thankful for all he’s done and how hard he has worked to take care of us. Happy Father’s Day, Travis. You are the best!

Here are a couple of "old" pics and a few new ones.

We gave Travis a fishtank for Father's Day...He's wanted one for a long time. Now lets see who keeps it clean:o)

And finally I would like to say how happy I am to have my Father in heaven. I can’t imagine my life without HIM. He’s my rock…He takes care of me….and without a doubt He’s always there for me. Thank you heavenly Father for who I am, for the life you’ve given me and for being my savior!

VBS day 3

Wednesday night was another great night at VBS! Our bible verse for the night was "The Lord kept his promise" Exodus 12:42. We learned about how God spared the Israelites at Passover. GOD DOES WHAT HE SAYS HE'LL DO!
