Happy Dad's Day

It's early Sunday morning but I think Mark would agree that he already has had a good Father's Day. Last night we went with Aaron, Christa, Charlotte and Levi to a Fresno Grizzlies game, the AAA affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. Through some maneuvering on Aaron's part, I was the 2000th Facebook friend of the Fresno Grizzlies (which was a surprise to me because I didn't even realize that I wanted to be "friends" with the Grizzlies). Anyway, we got free tickets to sit in their 600 Club, which is kind of like a big skybox--nice seats, more leg room, and people who actually come take your food orders! The weather was beautiful and we had a great time.

This morning, we were leaving to go get a morning bagel (my treat--yeah, I know, big Father's Day spender...), and this was on the windshield of Mark's truck. As a little background, my mom and dad gave this to us on Valentine's Day and at first we were puzzled. First of all, what IS it? And secondly, when they saw it what actually made them think of us? Turns out this is a "fence topper"--you put it on a fence post and it looks like it's peaking over from the other side of the fence. In the last couple of months we have been using it for celebrations. Only the Harpers so far (but any of our friends and family could be the recipient at some point so keep an eye on your fence). It made it on George's fence for his birthday in March, again for Jessie's graduation, and then just this past Wednesday for Jessie's 22nd birthday. And now courtesy of Jessie and Valerie, he's back home.

So for all you fathers out there (and especially you, Dad, for giving us this funny little pig--we are having a great time with him), have a great day. We appreciate you and love you.
