a mother's + father's day

These photos are actually from Mother's Day weekend, but this last weekend was Father's Day so Dan gets half of this post. Lucky! You know what else Dan gets? A giant pat on the back for helping us get through a long weekend without power. We went to bed Friday night listening to rain outside our window and woke up soon after to one hot bedroom and Sherman licking our hands, his way of politely asking us what in the world happened to his ceiling fan. No fans. No air conditioning. And one big Kansas City heat advisory. We made it through the night and bailed to the in-laws the next day, gladly coming back home to a cool house and LIGHTS on Monday morning. Dan spent his entire father's day weekend packing and unpacking clothes and diapers, dog food and toys, and setting up and taking down monitors and noise machines, mattresses and bedding. And just making sure his boys (and girl) were happy and comfortable and COOL. Thanks for taking care of us, Dan. Power or no power, we all know how lucky we are.
