So I really began to understand and appreciate my dad when I began with him my senior year of high school. My dad has the best sense of humor of anyone that I know. I may think that because we are so on the same page when it comes to funny stuff. We are both always thinking of how to shock people with a quick witted off-color response. He and I are also more alike than I would have ever thought growing up. He is very stubborn... guess who now has that trait?!
Chad's dad Dan is also a wonderful father in our lives! Dan has always been very involved and encouraging to Chad. If I could have picked a father for Chad I don't think I could have found a better one than Dan. They really are the perfect match, they "get each other" in a way that everyone else just looks around and says "what the... huh... that didn't make any sense" but they both understand each other perfectly. Dan fathers Chad in a way that Chad perfectly responds to... especially when dealing with sports, coaching issues, music and random useless trivia. Dan is also a very loving and involved grandfather. He always denies the fact that Dawson can do anything until he sees it with his own two eyes... it's really kind of cute! Happy Father's Day to a wonderful Father, Father-in-law and Grandpa!

We had an awesome day at church today. I have a feeling Heavenly Father was making up for what we would find when we got home... We walked in the door and walked directly back to Dawson's room to lay him down for a short nap. We then walked into our room to change and get stuff ready to head over to the Dan and Lisa Davis home for our Sunday lunch. I walked out into the living room when I saw it... URG! How frustrating. Apparently what happened was that our neighbor hit a sprinkler head with the lawn mower broke it and never said anything to the owner of our apartments. At two o'clock every morning the sprinklers come on and the sprinkler head was spraying water directly into a vent near the roof of our apartment; which then went into our ceiling and the ceiling dropped right into our living room... WHAT A MESS!
( This was us last night enjoying our mess free home after a day in the sun watching Chad play softball in which he did amazing yesterday by the way... not ever thinking of what might happen the following day.)
