Happy Father's day... or Aunt's Day... whichever works

First of all, Happy Father's Day to my wonderfully fantastic Daddy! 

We got to spend the day rummaging through some old stuff down in the basement.  I bought home all my old diaries & folders full of notes from my friends in high school... this is going to be some blog-worthy stuff, I'm sure!

But then my brother & his family came over & we headed out to eat....

Here is my brother.  He obviously doesnt get the love of the camera like I have... Believe me, its not the only opposite thing we have from each other! haha!!!

And here is my daddy with his beautiful grandbabies...

And because they seemed to be doing some "forced" smiles, my dad gave them something to smile about...

We had some full bellies after a wonderful, tasty, Italian dinner... & then headed home to get some serious game action going on... Candy Land?  Oh yeah baby!  We decided I look just like the lollipop lady on there - she had orange hair ... I think I know what I'm going to be for Halloween...

I had so much fun with the twins... I kept telling them not only is it Father's Day - but it was Aunt's Day too... & because they love me so much, they know EVERY DAY is Aunt's Day...

But before they left to go back home, they wanted to show me their impressive biking skills again.  I love that Madi calls her big wheel a 4-wheeler... hey, I'd rather her be on this thing then a big ole 4-wheeler...

And yes, I know its Father's Day & I dont have many pictures of my dad, but of my nieces instead... so maybe after everything, it was actually NIECES DAY!!!

I guess it all comes down to that every day I get to spend with my family is a special day - no matter the occassion.

Love you dad.. & mom... & the twins... & Juli... & yes, even my brother! ;)
