HAPPY FATHER'S DAY




HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO THE SPECIAL MEN IN MY LIFE
I was 3 1/2 when this picture was taken of my Dad with me in our watermelon patch.
When I think of my Dad I think of FUN ...
we actually had a watermelon patch because of all the seeds we'd spit out.
Even as a really young child, I remember watermelon seed spitting contests
as the sticky watermelon juice trickled down my chin and coated my neck.
Dad usually started the seed-spitting
(and ALL the food fights we ever had, Mom,
I want you to know - they were started
by DAD)
My Father-in-law shows us he loves us with the incredible
walking sticks
he custom makes.
Here's a picture of him before I'd ever become a part of the family.
Actually, I think this was the first birthday Brad missed celebrating with his Dad
(Brad was on his mission)
Otherwise they would have been out hunting or shooting in the desert.
Our oldest son, Trevor, is another fun, FUN Dad.
He gets his sense of adventure from his own Dad.
Just yesterday he taught Jace what fun really is:
with Jace comfortably perched on the end of our giant love sac,
and Caci standing ready for a flying toddler,
Trevor plopped as hard as he could on the other end
and would send Jace shooting
through the air
and (usually) into Caci's arms!
Ok - is this the
MOST HANDSOME
man you've ever seen, or what?!!!?
The love of my life
father of my children
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
Brad!
The newest father in our family: Brooke's husband, Steven.
By taking care of mother-to-be, Brooke, Steve is already exemplifying what great dads are made of.

Anyone who knows Bryan knows that he'll be an amazing Dad.
ALL KIDS LOVE BRYAN.
Besides being tender, compassionate, and loving,
BRYAN IS ULTIMATELY COOL.

Let me just say that
supporting every awesome Dad in my life
is an
AMAZING wife.
Lots of love and gratitude to
MY MOTHERS
and
MY DAUGHTERS

Following are some pictures sharing
precious memories
of the
FATHERS
IN MY LIFE
