Saturday morning Elise woke up first and came into our bedroom. I hopped out of bed to get ready to run and Ty told Elise to go get her Gma. Elise must've been a little unsure because she walked into the kitchen and just stood by the futon without saying anything. Rocky said he heard her breathing and that's how he knew she was there. I headed out for my run while they started making breakfast pockets. Rocky kept calling them hot pockets and asking the kids to say it. Elise kept telling him no but then once he stopped she walked off while singing out "hot pocket!" They were super excited to give me one when I got home. Ty and Rocky had decided they wanted to smoke some pork for their Father's Day meal which we did on Saturday evening so they spent the morning working on that. We had a lazy morning at home playing before lunch and naps. When the kids woke up Leina and I took them on a walk so Carter could show his Gma how fast he is at riding a bike and Elise pedaled her bike for the first time! Dinner was delicious and we enjoyed more time at home that evening. A fun game the kids played with Leina at some point during the day was pretending that they were asleep on the futon. Elise was just hilarious pretending to snore and then Carter started pretending to sleep walk which he found enormously funny.

To celebrate my dad and Ty we went out for dinner and then did another round of cards and presents. It was pretty funny that Ty and dad were wearing the same shirt. When Ty got dressed that morning he made the comment that he'd probably end up matching my dad and he was right! Fittingly for Father's Day, both Carter and Elise wanted to sit with my dad so he had his lap full at dinner. Normally Elise wants no one but Oma so that was a special Father's Day treat! They later treated us to ice cream before heading back home. It was a very fun and loved filled Father's Day weekend for us!
