Daddy's Day 2011

We've got some pretty sweet dads.  Father's Day was a bit of a whirlwind this year.  We celebrated all day long.  

I didn't get any pictures of Dave with his dad. But Joe was happy to take pictures at Jan's party, 
so I'm glad I got to be in one with him
 We started with breakfast with the Borowicz Crew.
Sticky buns and green smoothies.
Breakfast of champions.
 We went to church, had a quick brunch and then headed to my dad's house.
My buddy Cruz was a fan favorite

 I love these pictures.
These kids adore their Poppy

 Missing Dana and the girls, but with all these blonde kids, you would think we adopted.
 So thankful for my dad.  Always cooking and helping with the kids.

 And for my Dave.  The hottest, most creative and loving guy I could've ever prayed for.
 They just don't come any better.
Counting my blessing for these wonderful daddies.  

Sixty and goin strong

We like to party.  And with a three month old and a two year old, let me tell you, we are a BLAST.  But we had reason to celebrate because my favorite mother-in-law turned 60 on June 16.  You would never know she's 60.  She's beautiful, talented, strong and has more energy than I could ever dream of having.  

 Did I mention creative?  And she passed it along to her kiddos.
She painted the striped board on the left.  Dave did the one on the right.  
They were a big hit.
 4 of Jan's 7 siblings.
So if you're better at math than I am, that means her parents had 8 kids. 8.
 These two sweethearts just celebrated 42 years of marriage.

 My sweet sis-in-law Kate created a book for Jan entitled 
"If You Give My Mom A Project"
It included pictures of the NUMEROUS projects she has helped all of us with and things that we love about her.  A few of mine included being thankful for her margaritas and counting out loud while measuring cups of flour for cookies.  Pearls I tell you.
 Jason and Shannon joined via Skype from New Zealand (and announced they are having a baby!)
 Wahoo!  Welcome to the smoothie movement!
 A heart to heart with sweet Grandpa John.
 The immediate fam spent the night and we went to the park and hung out on the back patio.  It was a wonderful day.  So thankful for this lovely lady and all that she has given to us.  
Happy 60th Mom.

A Summer Preview

Just when you thought I had probably thrown in the blogging towel altogether....

Here's a little intro to our summer.  There is much more to come.  Like Cruz is 5 months old and he still spits up a lot.  Did I mention that he actually fried our Mac laptop because of spit up?  Isla is every bit of 2 and livin it up this summer.  Dave is still smokin hot and skinny.  And me, well I'm not skinny or smoking in any sense of the word, but I sure do love my family.
