we celebrate our daddy today!
between tickles, teaching the simple things, riding extra long bike rides, laughing till all of our faces hurt, special one times, dinosaur spittin', o-coke fun, one & only night night song, goozer meat eating, snuggling way to long (till you are the one sleeping), always the "seeker" in our hide & go seek games, filling the house with whistles, many many kisses & tears of pride & joy,
you have captured the hearts of our four children.
i honor the father you are.
you have given a rare gift to our little ones.
thank you, loves!
now to my dad...matt has had a lot to live up to. poor guy! dad is a true servant. his passion for fun, sailing, gardening, laughter, good deal finding, medicine, flying, getting a realy good fly-fishing catch, traveling the world, & true love have taught me more everyday than i could have ever imagined to learn. just from him being himself.
i learned honesty, integrity, how to make any kind of pancake you could ever want, patience, kindness, curiosity, fighting all my shape shifters in the dark, gentleness, great jokes, love of cultures, & dependability from my dad.
i am grateful you are my father & now teach those things to our children.
i love you!
we missed having mom, j.p. & david at our lunch!
