{Happy Father's Day}

To my sweet husband.  Here he is with Carson (one week old) as a brand new daddy.

Can't imagine our life without you! You provide things for our children that I cannot match.  You are amazing at all the 'dad' stuff.  Including:

-Jumping out of bed at the first sound or cry from one of the three kids at night.
-Working hard (I mean really hard!) so I can stay home with the kids.
-Making it a priority to be at all the kids' events even when they are right in the middle of the work day.
-Giving the kids the best horse-y rides.
-Making sure we have enough family time planned on the calendar.
-Running/training late at night or in the early morning while the kids are sleeping so you don't have to take up any of the kids' time with their dad.
-Taking Addy on 'dates' and Carson on 'outings'.
-Encouraging (and paying for!) the kids to do a lot of sports and activities.
-Lovin all our babies in the baby stage...diaper changes and all.
-Taking the kids on rides in your jeep.
-Lighting up when you walk in the door (even after a long day) with excitement to see 3 little kids running your way.
-Dedicated and faithful member of our church.  You are our rock!
-Making sure we all know that we are #1 in your book all the time!

We love you! 

And Happy Father's Day to my dad too.  I couldn't have asked for a better dad as a kid or as an adult.  He is such an example of patience and hard-work and love for his family. Thanks for being so involved with our little family. We really appreciate the effort both you and mom put in to see us so much during the year even though we live so far away. 
Here he is with Carson (the first grandchild).   And thanks for being a great Grandpa (or "Bampa" as Ry call him right now!).  They all know who to go to for 'nannies'! (aka candy).
 And Ry thinks this is him in this picture.  Car and Ry are almost identical as babies!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
