A Great First Father’s Day

A Great First Father’s Day

For Father’s Day Micah decided to start teaching his son the craft of photography. Although Simon does not yet have the manual dexterity to hold a camera, he did a great job as the photographer’s assistant by keeping the other babies looking at the camera. It was hilarious. I don’t even want to know how many times I heard, “Look at the baby’s toes! Look at the baby’s toes!” in the 45-minute shoot Micah did for his boss’s family reunion. It seemed to go well, and it was fun for me to see Micah in art director mode, even if it was just for a couple of group shots–nothing fancy.
We also had the delightful experience of running into some “family” of sorts at church. Our sister-in-law, Missy, has a twin sister, Liz, who was in Hawaii with her family for her brother-in-law’s wedding. (Put a gold star on your forehead if you followed that little chain.) Out of all of the sacrament meetings they could have gone to, they some how found their way to ours. They were kind enough to let us crash their Father’s Day festivities, and I can’t tell you how great it was to be invited over for Sunday dinner. We had such a great time. The Harmons really made us feel like family, and since Liz and Missy look and sound so much alike, I totally forgot that I’d actually only met her briefly three years ago and we were not, in fact, best friends. We decided that Simon and her son Reid would probably be great friends as well if given a little more time together.
Reid is actually three months older than Simon, and although he is taller than Simon, they probably weigh about the same. Simon behaved himself throughout the night, which we took to mean that he was having as much fun as we were. What a great way to start the week.

  1. That is so awesome! I SO totally wish I had been there. I miss you both so very much. I’m so glad you got to spend some time together. The Harmons are, indeed, an awesome family. You both look so pretty… I wish I’d been there.

  2. How Fun. I haven’t seen the Harmons for years. I think it was right after their daughter was born. They have an older daughter, right? What a small world.

  3. Yeah, small world!

    But I do have to say that you are looking fantastic, and Simon is so darling!! Can’t wait to see you soon!

  4. That’s so fun! Simon hides his weight well. :) Those two boys are adorable and I just have to say that I love how small the world is when you’re a mormon.

  5. The Harmons thoroughly enjoyed having some more “cousins” (in the Hawaiian sense of the word) to come share Father’s Day with us. We love all the Heiselts we’ve ever met, and wish the best to you, Lizzie & Micah on your next adventure to NYC.
