Fathers Day

I'm a little late on Fathers Day but I wanted to make sure that I posted how much I love my husband and that I think he is a wonderful father. He is so sweet when the kids snuggle with him and just soaks up those moments. He is so good when Patrick needs some Dad time and will talk him out side and play water balloons or take him for a short ride on the motorcycle. I love him every day and am so glad he is by my side to raise these sweet kids.

I also want to say how grateful I am for my Dad. He doubts he was a good dad but I have so many good memories of him and spending time with us one on one. He had to be gone a lot with work and the National Guard but I know that I was so proud of him and all that he did for our family and our country and I looked forward to him coming home and us going out to dinner and laughing all night in the corner booth at Marie Calendars. I remember  him taking me to TCBY in his red jeep and we just sat on the curb and ate and talked. I loved our motorcycle birthday rides and trips to the Honda center to  see what new bike he was looking at. I treasured the times going to his office on a saturday and hanging out while he had to work for a little while. He has taught me so much about being a hard worker and standing up for what I believe is right. I really look up to him and hope that I can be more like him. I have his voice in my head everyday inspiring me to do better. I love you Dad!!!
