Father's Day

We had a fantastic Father's Day. B decided he wanted to spend time with his folks and celebrate his FIRST Father's Day (as a baby daddy). We were supposed to head to Niceville for Memorial Day but Memama got the flu and we had to cancel.

Gratefully we were able to leave Thursday night. We thought that if we fed Troy and left shortly afterward, he would sleep the whole way there and we would have a smooth, quiet drive. Not! Sleeping was not on his mind so we sang, talked, read (well, I read) and about 45 minutes from Memama and Grandy's house, he fell asleep. Thank goodness.

Anyway, we had a great weekend. Lots of eating, sleeping, playing in the pool and hanging out. Jeff, Amy and their kids made their way over on Saturday. We all made it to the beach on Sunday.

B, thank you so much for what you do! You work so hard to provide for us, you play great with Troy. I love how he gets so excited to see you home each and every day. When I'm working overnight or take some girl time, I love it that you are so willing to step in and take care of our little boy. Even before he came, you were so great. And, thank you for making me breakfast and coffee every morning. Yes, EVERY morning! Changing those dirty diapers is a nice chore you've taken over, too.

B got a photo book I created on smugmug and he says he loves it. I'd say it's priceless when the father of your child tears up while reading a book made by his wife recounting the first few, precious months of his own child.

Happy Father's Day!
