HAPPY Father's Day...

seems to mean so much more now since Glen's been gone.  He was able to fly home for a quick 1-2 day turnaround and it was worth it.  We surprised Micah by telling him his Clifford stuffed animal was hiding in our bed sheets and he wanted to come have breakfast with us.  SURPRISE!  Anna stood amazed for awhile, then was all snuggles.  Blessed beyond measure to have this short time together.
We love you Dad!

Dad & Caleb getting acquainted again
Kids were ALL over him, so precious
Happy girl :)

Summer Fun

"Me love cookies"
Swim lessons have begun!

 Crystal comes to visit again and help.  How did I deserve such a friend?

 BIG teether on our hands
 "Daddy is gone for HOW long mommy?!"
 "Okay...well, as long as he comes back soon"
 Glen bought Army outfits.  Yep, we are "officially" military folks!

Love seeing them play more together...
