Father’s Day 2014

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all the Dads out there.

All six Caterpillars were with us today, and we started off at church.  We’ve been visiting around, and this was our third Sunday visiting this particular church.  Otto and I had a wonderful Sunday School lesson, and the sermon was a unique Father’s Day one.  The sermon series has been on Hebrews 11 (the “Hall of Fame” of Faith), and today was about Noah and how regardless of his preaching and godly life – his true circle of influence was his immediate family.  Fathers are to realize that regardless of any other outside influence they might have, their family is where God has called them to serve first and foremost.  It was a good sermon.

For lunch I had a frozen pizza and mac and cheese all ready, something simple so we could lay the littles down for a quick nap.  Otto has been wanting to go geocaching, and I found a couple of really good and special ones I thought we would save for today.

With bottles of water in hand, we set out.  It was a quick drive (5 mins), and then a half-mile walk down this beautiful trail.  It led to a small opening at the Apalachee River.  There was a beautiful sandbar, a section of calm water and a really cool set of small rapids.  The Caterpillars had a blast playing in the water (and we located one cache).

Went got a SWEET ride...  Next time, Otto says we carry him!

My favorite part was when Otto took Went up into the brush to look at the small waterfall.  An absolute success!

Afterwards, we drove to the local RaceTrac for Otto to fill up his free cup, and everyone was allowed to choose a candy bar and a soda (or freeze) to drink.  Back home to play with the puppies and pull the brisket out.  At Otto’s request, I made a 36 hour beef brisket for dinner, so that simply needs to be heated up.

We’ll give the littles a bath, then Otto has asked for either a card game or a family movie.  A perfect first Father’s Day!  (Next Sunday, we are going to see the Gwinnett Braves with my Daddy, Minnie Mouse, BooSheep and the Sheep Kids.  That’s our Second Father’s Day!)
