Happy Father's Day!!

Father's Day 2008
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say what a wonderful Daddy and husband Karl truely is!!! I can't believe he is on Father's Day #2 next thing you know it will be 20! Time has gone by way too fast since Lars' birth! Sometimes I wish life would slow down a little bit!
Karl is not only my best friend, but he is a wonderful husband! He works very hard to provide for his family. Then somehow in his free time manages to paint, build and entertain!! :) Every once in a while we let him have some time off to ride his motorcycle or go to the gun range, but he always manages to be home in time to grill dinner for us!
Karl also spends time playing with Lars, which is one of the greatest joys of my life. I love to see Lars' face light up when Karl comes in the room! They spend lots of time playing ball, drumming (make noise:), building things and splashing in the bath or pool.

1917 Military Truck

For those of you who know my dad, Dale Hardy, you will not be suprised at all by his resent request. He has been a major player is having several old LeTourneau Vehicles located, rebuilt and modeled. As a result of his interest in LeT vehicles he is a member of a Historical Truck society. One of his good friends in the society is the owner of this 1917 Military Truck, that is currently the oldest vehicle taking part in the "Transcontinental Motor Convoy", traveling from D.C. to San Fran. For more details:
Dad's request was to have Lars' picture taken in the 1917 truck! Lars and I had a great time checking out all the military vehicles that are taking part in the TMC. Lars took a particular interst in the motorcycle:) The owner was nice enough to let Lars sit on it for a photo op!
Dad, wish you could have come with us!

Big Boys!

I can't believe how big these boys are getting!! Our friends Dave and Kristen just moved into a new house and their barstools are the perfect height for the boys to sit in, by themselves! It's hard to believe they are big enough to sit in a stool by themselves!! They were all so cute sitting up at the bar eating their lunch.
Time has really flown by this past year, Luke and Lars are 14 months old, Isaiah is 11 months and Davis is 10 months! Next thing you know they are going to be going to college! Now I know why "adults" are always saying kids grow up way to fast!! (that doesn't mean I'm an adult, does it? :)
