Happy Father's Day

I get to pay tribute to 2 great men in my life today! First, the Father of my kids, who does so much for me and our family! I really don't know what, or how, to say all of the things he does for us. This picture pretty much wraps it up! Actually, he's got it easy in this picture....usually he's corralling all the 4 big kids, and all their stuff, while I get to hold the baby (notice, he's even smiling!). He puts the kids and myself first every day, every minute, in everything. I wish there was more I could do for this wonderful man, and wonderful father. I'm so grateful. I thought I knew what a wonderful man he was when I married him, but every year I grow to appreciate him more and more!
And, of course, a tribute to my own father! Shown here with my youngest, and his youngest grandchild out of 11! I would have put a better picture in, but he has a goofy camera smile! (sorry dad, but you do!) I can't say enough good things about my own dad, who I gain more and more appreciation for now that I am a parent! All my childhood memories are full of love and happiness. My dad always put his children first, and he always had time to play with us. I'm grateful for his patience and wisdom that have guided me, and helped me become the person I am today. Hopefully, as I continue to grow up, I can become more like him. I don't know if you're reading my blog today or not, but I love you, daddy.

I hope all my readers are having an equally awesome Fathers Day, and hopefully you all have wonderful men in your life to celebrate as well.
