Nothing like playing with a couple of potatoes and then throwing them at your mother. (Okay, she really didn't throw it, but it definitely scared me:) I think she didn't want me to take her picture)
Breakfast is served!
I also want to wish my dad a Happy Father's Day. He is a smart, loving, hardworking man. He had to work offshore when we were growing up, which made him gone a week, home a week, etc. I know that was a hard job but he kept at it, to make sure we were always taken care of. I look back on that now and realize what a big sacrifice that was and what a hard job that must have been. He also has a great sense of humor. I loved it when he would act silly, tickle us and joke around. He loved to give knuckle sandwiches and stick my sister on top of the entertainment center:) Never a dull moment. Oh yeah, and of course how could we forget the Dairy Queen stops? Blizzards were our favorite treat from my dad. I love you Dad. Thanks for everything you've done for me to help me become who I am today. Thank you also for being a sweet and loving Grandpa to my girls. They think the world of you.

And of course, Happy Father's Day Joe! From the moment I met you, I loved you! You are so much like Joey-how could I not? You are such a great Tata to our girls. I love how you get down on the floor with them and let them climb on you. I love how silly you are with them. They love to play with you! I also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the example you have been to Joey as a child and now as an adult. You are the perfect example of hard work, humility, kindness, dedication, and righteousness. Joey is the great man he is because of you. We all love you so much. Thanks for everything you do for the entire family. And also, thanks for putting up with all of our pranks:) You are definitely the funnest person to wake up from a nap-he he:)
