Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. And I want to acknowledge the Fathers in my life. First there is my Grandfather. He's 94 years old and I wish I had a picture to download for all to see. He's still very handsome, but more importantly, he has been the best Grandfather anyone could ever have. It all started with him being a great father to my father.
My father is the best father a daughter could ask for. If you were able to choose your own father, I would still choose him. He even loves my Ellie Mae (black toy poodle) as his own.
My Bob is such a good father to my two sons. He's also so loving and very close to his grandchildren. (Sorry these pictures are a little blurry. I need to work on my photography skills)


My oldest son, Austin, never planned on being a father at soon as he was, but he certainly learned how to be a good father from the best, his own father. It is the strangest thing to watch your own children become parents.


My youngest son, Brandon, is a brand new father, but I can already tell that he absolutely loves the role of father to his beautiful little girl, Riley.

I believe the best thing we can do for our grandchildren is to be good parents and role models to their parents. It's not always been an easy thing to do, but we always try our best.
And to have Father's Day fall on the First Day of Summer made it a very "feel good" day.
Hope it was the same for you.

Sounds like today went well and things were a little calmer, I hope that was the case.
Maybe this coming week everything will settle down for you and yours.

Amen to that! Your sons look like they have certainly taken to the task. You have no idea how lucky you are to have had such a wonderful Dad. I never really knew mine...

Your grandfather looks fantastic - 94?! My MIL is 91 and she looks great, too. Isn't it a treasure to still have your grandfather! I adored both of mine. (The rest of the family looks wonderful, too, but I'm taken with people over 90!) Linda p.s. Hope you're especially enjoying that newest grandie!
