Yesterday, for all those of you who have been living under a rock, was Father's Day--a day set aside to think about appreciate our fathers. Well, I've been meaning to find just-the-right card to send my dad but just kept forgetting before I eventually ran out of time. :( I still wanted to send him something special and kept racking my brain to see what I could come up with.
Well, yesterday afternoon I was walking back inside from taking Petey potty and happened to turn and see a cardinal land in our backyard. This is the first cardinal I've seen this season and it's the one thing (well, cardinals and us) my dad said he'd like to see when they come visit us in August. I quickly ran inside, grabbed my phone and ran back out to snap a quick picture. My first shot was no good, but the second one was perfect! That pretty little bird turned profile right as I snapped the shot, creating the perfect little photo. I sent it and a little message to my dad as his Father's Day greeting. He thought it was great. :)
There is a lot of extended family in town (back home) for my brother's graduation from dental school and when my family gets together, there is a lot of laughter! I called to talk with my dad and kept hearing bursts of laughter in the background. I asked what was going on and he said they were playing a game. A few minutes later, my sister came on the phone and told me what was going on.
Apparently, my cousins found a game they could play on their drive up to Oregon. The game is: list as many movie titles that could describe a bowel movement. Clinton and I thought of some and sent them to everyone via text so we could play along too. Here a select

Great game...that is, if you have the maturity of a 12-year-old boy. "Bottom Line": This game was GREAT for our family! :)
