Summer brings good eats and splashing fun.  My kids sure don’t think that they get enough of the splashing.  So, like the deprived children they are, we spent the beginning of summer having a splashing good time.

My parents have hosted a Father’s Day celebration at their house for a few years now.  We all bring a dish to pass and grill something yummy for the main course.  My sister and her family and my in-laws enjoy the day with us too.  The kids always have some special treat (usually bubbles or swim toys) and they get to splash around with their cousins.

I really enjoy this day.  It’s so nice to be together with everyone.  I really enjoy seeing the kids playing with their cousins.  I don’t remember doing that with my cousins.  I guess that we played together as young kids a bit.  Mostly, they lived half way across the world – India.  My other cousin was in Minnesota and then they moved to Colorado.  The only missing family was my brother’s, but they live out of state.  I miss seeing them and my handsome nephew (who is 1 month younger than Baby E).

I hope you all had a fabulous Father’s Day!
