Father's Day 2015

A few years ago we started a tradition of spending Father's Day at a hotel/ water park that is less than an hour from where we live.  Hotel Longarone holds a lot of memories for many of the missionaries that served before us.  Many of them talk fondly of family visits there and how much their children enjoyed going there.  I thought it would be a fun place to go each year so our boys would also have those memories so we began making it an annual tradition.  Here are some photos from our time there this year.

Father's Day morning began by giving David the cards the boys made him and the things Cruz made for him at school. 

We always do homemade cards for Mother's Day and Father's Day.

Cruz's questionnaire about his dad.

Just like with all other holidays and special occasions we took a family photo.  This is us on Father's Day 2015.  We try to stand in the same spot each year.

We spent time jumping off the diving boards.

We spent time going down the slides.

fun times!

We spent time eating.  Here are David and the boys enjoying a poolside picnic lunch on Father's Day.

The boys loved riding their bikes around the property.

They also loved the playgrounds.

What we loved most of all was just being together laughing, playing, and making fun memories.  It was a fun day despite our old bodies being exhausted from going up and down the waterslide steps and doing funny things off the diving boards.  It takes a lot to keep up with these two little ones but it sure was fun!  Parenthood is the hardest job ever so it's nice to have a day set aside to say thanks and show honor.  David is a wonderful dad to our boys and I hope we made him feel extra loved all day long.
