Happy Father's Day

Happy Fathers Day to my sweet hubbs, Brad. Being around your family today...
with people amazed that it has been 13 years and remembering our wedding day made thinking about my life with you come full force. On our drive home, I couldn't help thinking how lucky I am. How lucky
our kids are to have you as Daddy...
You are such a kidster. Never afraid to act silly with me and the kids. Sometimes it makes tense situations easier to get thru. Sometimes that silliness is what I need to get through a day. 

You are the parent that teaches our kids the important stuff like riding a bike, learning to swim and how to roll a bowling ball the proper way. You take them on the big rides at the park (no stomach for it), you play video games at Chuck E.CHeese (can't stand that), you take them to the outdoor potties (icky) and you clean up their upset stomach messes...(again, no stomach for it)

You carry the pink back pack on your back to lighten the load. You take long walks with us even after a long day at work. You eat all my meals (even though sometimes after dinner you tell me it was a bit dry or needed more salt), thanks for waiting.You help me with my craft projects. You help me re-arrange furniture ALL the TIME. You give me back rubs just because I ask.

You always make me feel pretty no matter how ugly I feel. You always lay your hand on my back at just the right time. You always make me feel comfortable when we are around people I don't know.
You always try hard to fit in with my friends and are easy to get along with.

You make us see the beauty in things we usually overlook. You have a fondness with the ocean
and try and instill that same love in our kids. Luckily they all love the water. And can spend hours in the pool or ocean...

I knew one day I would meet a guy who would love me with his whole heart and who I knew I would love back and not be so quick to leave when something bad happened. I knew true LOVE would help me grow up. And you did. I not only found a best friend in you but also a partner and my first truest LOVE. I love everything about you, even the things that drive me crazy but mostly, I love your hugs, your kisses, you kindness, your help, your compassion and your calmness. My life would not be same if you were not in it.

Thanks for giving me the most beautiful kids, the best life and your love.
I truly do love you, Big Papa

Have the best Father's Day and vacation.
