To Three Special Fathers...

Happy Father's Day!
  I am thankful everyday for the dad and husband that Flint is.  He is so good to me and he is such a wonderful dad to Cilla.  I admire how hard Flint works and how hard he plays!  For both I am thankful!  He is such a good balance to me as we walk through the journey of parenting together!  I found a few pics to help Flint celebrate his day!  
Here is his first Father's Day 2009.
...and today.  
Pictures with a two year old are not quite as simple as they were with an infant!  This was the best we could get after church today.  Sad.
I think this picture is hilarious- "DEVOTED DADS".  This was the Seahorse exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium last summer.  Flint and one of his best buddies, Corby, REALLY ARE such devoted dads!  
All smiles.  She loves her daddy's shoulders!
Cilla only days old.  This was what Flint loved to do with her most when she was so itty bitty.
Fun in the Sun.
This is what our summers looked like when we lived in Waco!
I am also thankful for our dads- Pappy and Poppa!  Flint and I would not be who we are today without them.
Pappy, Flint and Cilla.
And Poppa with his little Stinkerdoodle!
I got the cutest Father's Day idea from my friend Sarah, but I tried three times to put my plan into action and each was a FAIL!  This was what I had to work with!
I do not give up easily.  I will keep trying, it just may be next Father's Day before I get the pictures I want!  Oh, life with a two year old!!!
Happy Father's Day, Flint!  Your girls love you more than you know!
And to my dad and Ray, we love you bunches and are so thankful for the roles you have played in our lives.  Thanks for all you do for us!  Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made for us!  And most of all, thank you for loving us!  We sure do love you!
I hope all three dads have a happy happy day!

Such a sweet post! And I'm sorry you're having a hard time getting the pictures...it is definitely a lot of work!! You need an assistant to do it...I had 3 - haha! :) LOVE that last picture though of her in her precious dress in the field...such a doll. :)
