Amazing Men, Amazing Dads

It's no secret that I'm a little behind in my blogging, and here is yet another event that actually took place nearing a couple of months ago ... Father's Day!

We came cruising back from a family reunion late the night before, but still managed to have a little fun on Dad's big day. The kids and I made candy-bar posters and invited the grandpas over for dinner ... in hopes that they would share some of their candy with us, which of course they did.

I was searching online for a really exemplary quote or poem to honor these exemplary fathers, but nothing seemed to do justice. They're just too amazing! It's incredible to see men in our selfish society sacrifice everything for family. Giving up pretty cars for swing sets and sand boxes, gym passes for swim lessons, golf games for chaotic campouts, and any moment of relaxation for the needs of children, family, and society. And the truly exemplary part ... they don't even blink an eye.

My amazing man! The father of my soon-to-be five beautiful children.
(notice Mae's dress ... it was mine when I was about her age)
Seriously, who could want more than this anyway?;)
And the other amazing men in our family!
You guys are awesome!
