Happy Daddy's Day!

I was lucky to be able to see my father this year on Father's Day! Kim and I took a vacation to visit family in Michigan and were able to join the rest of my siblings and Momma Nell in celebrating dad and Father's Day together. Thank you dad, for all the sacrifices you made for us, for being a wonderful daddy, a good provider and a great example to all of us. We love you!

This layout was done for a Backporch Memories challenge honoring one of the men in our life (for Father's Day). It made me realize that I don't scrap pages of Kim or myself often enough - partially because I don't have very many pictures of us. I really enjoyed doing this one though, and I'm definitely going to start taking a few more pics of both of us!

Summertime reminds me of the cottage. Growing up, the family always met there on Memorial Day weekend to start the summer season and I will always miss those wonderful weekends with my aunts, uncles and cousins - playing in the lake, taking walks in the woods, eating wonderful food, the men playing horseshoes and everyone sitting around the kitchen table playing cards in the evening. Some of my favorite childhood memories took place there and part of me will always miss it. These pictures are of some of my siblings and me at the cottage in June, 1966.
