It's been a long time, blog world! Between life, work, and some vacations, I haven't taken (or really, had) the time to write much. I want to get back to it because I really enjoy it, so what better way than recapping Father's Day.
We had a great Sunday celebrating our favorite dad's! My SIL hosted Father's Day at her house and we chose an Italian theme simply because we knew the men wouldn't help with it! We spent the afternoon and most of the night swimming. It was great!
Every year, I try to ask the boys what they love most about Kevin. Here are their responses from this year:
K.C. - 7
1. He plays the race car game with me.
2. He plays baseball and soccer with me and we play football in the backyard.
3. He loves me.
4. He gives good hugs.
5. He takes me places.
6. He takes me fishing.
7. He tells good stories.
Kaden - 6
1. He's my dad.
2. He's very nice.
3. He plays with me.
4. He's funny.
5. He gives good hugs.
6. He tickles me.
7. He gives good snuggles.
Kevin is a great dad! When I thought of all the qualities I wanted in a father for my children, I thought of Kevin. He is all those things and so much more. I'm so thankful the boys have his example to follow (and I'm glad he's mine!)!
For Father's Day, we gave him a Garmin running watch. He doesn't talk about it too much, but he's started running a few miles at a time every other day or so. He's been using my Garmin if he goes out when I'm not running, so I thought he'd enjoy having his own. We also gave him a few other things and some new running shoes.
Kevin and I are blessed to have really great dads, too.
Many of my childhood memories revolve around time with my dad. He always made everything fun and did so many active things with me. I can't recall many of our conversations, but I loved to just ride around with him. He always jumped waves, rode bikes, and played ball with me, too. I'm thankful for the person he is. His love and actions have molded and shaped me into the woman I am today!
I'm also thankful for my awesome FIL who took me in as one of his own immediately. He is such a special person and we're blessed that he is ours.
