Father's Day Love
We celebrated father's day by doing 'whatever dad wants' (with lots of helpful ideas from the twins). This meant that Dave made waffles this morning, we went for a hike, and of course, stopped for some much deserved ice cream.
Today I am thankful for this amazing father in my children's lives - he is patient, caring, fun, and most importantly fully present in all the many moments of our shared lives. Seeing my husband become an amazing father makes me equally thankful for my own father (somehow it is so much easier to full appreciate your own parents once you've had your own children). I am grateful for the example he has set for me and my children and for the infinite moments we have shared over the years.
Today it felt so good to get into the woods, look at millipedes, collect rocks, climb rocks, slow down, and pause to think about all these amazing dads!
Happy Father's Day!
