Happy Father's Day!







I love being a Dad. There's nothing quite like seeing the joy in your kids' faces after a long day at work, or hearing them squeal like little piglets. I am quite good at the Tickle Game.... Being a parent is a huge responsibility, and I'm learning a lot about patience. My wife spends all day with them, so I can only thank her for that sacrifice - the sacrifice of her sanity. Please, no sharp instruments!

Also, Dad = Jungle Gym. They climb and do acrobatics off of my limbs. Sometimes I get them to walk on my back, which is nice until they decide to jump when then get to my head. I remember doing some of those things with my Dad, too.

Dads mow the lawn. That is, until they have a teenage son. I have invested in two of them, and they better not let me down! I'm all about child labor. I'm about ready to get myself a riding mower until then, though. This heat is killing me...

I am grateful for my Dad and realize now how hard it must have been. We kids sure were nuts...

Thanks, Dad!

Here are some random pix off of my camera.

You're kids are too adorable for words. They look like they are full of mischief, too. Kids are good at that. We have two boys, and I can barely keep up. How do you handle four!?
