Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my awesome husband!  He went from never holding a baby to being a dad of (almost!) four in an 8 1/2 year span.  He is a wonderful dad, and it shows by how much they adore him! I am so lucky to be in this adventure with him.  I treasure the family we have created together!

Happy Father's Day to the first man I loved!  My dad is amazing, and I'm so happy that my kids get to spend so much time with their Papa.

Happy Father's Day to Grant's dad.  This was the first Father's Day without him, but he will always be in our hearts.

We did our best to keep Grant's mind off of missing his own father.  After we all slept in, the kids gave Grant a homemade card filled with candy, a variety pack of baseball cards, and a gaming chair. I made a big brunch of scrambled eggs and bacon. He got to relax at home. Grant's mom came to visit and brought him cake.  We visited my dad that evening, and on the way home, I picked up Grant's favorite Chinese food for dinner.  After the kids were tucked into bed, Grant and I got to relax for a few hours before our own bedtime.  He thanked us for giving him a great day, so I think we succeeded!

Happy Father's Day to all the amazing fathers out there!
