More from Fathers Day

While we were celebrating at Jeremys for Fathers Day we got a call from our daughter Jennifer in Georgia.  Jennifer and Jeremy used facetime on their I phones so Jennifer and her family could watch Marvin open his gifts from them.
Kayla had to help Papa

His gift was the book "Convert" by Bob Delaney" a NBA referre and a picture of Kobe Bryant and Bob.  Bob autographed this picture personally for Marvin. 
Of course our AWESOME son in law Matt had a lot to do with this as he was Bob Delaneys escort for a few days and got to know him quite well. 

Holly and Ricky gave Marvin a round of golf and Jeremy and Sara provided a great family BBQ.  Sara our daughter in law made this yummy carrot cake from scratch.   Spending time with the family is so important to us. 

Now for the hike.  Even though I thought it was to warm and humid I agreed to hike with the family.

What a great family picture of Jeremy Sara Kayla and Morgan
This was just the beginning and that is why I was smiling
and Marvin was fine no problems at all
Here Holly was waiting for us
we  snapped some pictures for Morgan of nature
Kayla was stretching waiting for the rest of the group
Morgan insisted on modeling in front of the tree. 

My face was so red here.
You can tell in these pictures how hot and exhausted I was.  I almost fainted a couple of times dropping to my knees and seeing black BUT I willed myself to get up and continue.  Lukily we had brought some ice water.    And I made it and I was okay. 
It was great weekend to get to spend with the kids. 
A big thank you to
Jennifer Matt Emma & Logan
Jeremy Sara Kayla & Morgan
Holly & Ricky.

We love you all and are proud to be your parents. 
Mom & Dad

What a great Father's Day for Marvin! Especially the signed picture, wow! I liked your comment about smiling at the beginning of your hike, ha! I don't know if I could have forced my lips to smile, lol! You be careful and don't overdo! I'm glad you had some cold water! What wonderful memories you are gathering!
Love to you and yours, Susan
Thanks for visiting my blog. I haven't been putting much on it lately. The two kittens are keeping me busy! They are 3 months old now. (I've had them since they were 4 1/2 weeks old!)
