Father's Day... with Cooper!

First of all, I want to recognize the best father I know! Brady is an amazing dad!! I can see it in the way he cares for Cooper. He is gentle and so loving. He has always been a "hands on" kind of dad, which I knew he would be when I married him. I can see the joy he has when playing with Cooper, or even when he tries to comfort him (which can be very difficult without mom)! I am so happy that Brady is the father of our children and I look forward to many more days dedicated to him!

Kegan was born a few days before Father's Day so it has always been a little rough for both Brady and I. It's hard to celebrate a day dedicated to father's when the child is not there to be with them. But we made the best of it and now we have Cooper to celebrate with! The day started out rough. We were going to go to a 9:00 sacrament then drive to Sun Valley to have a picnic and walk around. We ended up sleeping in too late and decided to check out the branch that had sacrament at 11:55. We were hoping that this singles/student branch would have people our own age and maybe even small families (considering that there are no babies in our ward - we thought maybe they go to the student branch). Boy were we wrong! It's more of a singles branch than a student branch...not a single married couple! We did not feel comfortable and will not be going back again! ALSO, I had heard that Sun Valley was only 45 minutes away but mapQuest said that it was about 2 hours away. We didn't want to drive that far so we decided to check out a nearby park. Here are a few pictures of our day!
