Father's Day #1 (Dad's/G-pa's)

I think with the amount of pictures I took this weekend for Father's Day I needed to have 2 separate posts. One dedicated to our (Mark & I's) dad's/ Wyatt's g-pa's and a different one for Mark.

We had a great day...my parent's came up late Friday night because this was an EXPEDITEstl weekend. My dad made the trip with us and my mom stayed behind to watch Wyatt. She took him to the zoo...Aunt Erin and Uncle Pete went with them too! They said they had a blast and Wyatt was so good! That always makes a mama happy. ;)

This morning we got up and unloaded the truck. We had a few pickups too. My mom got us Krispie Kreme donuts for breakfast. We let Wyatt try one...WOW....he LOVED them. He ate 2 AFTER his real breakfast. Ha! (Thanks Mom)



My mom made lunch....notice we are eating on throw aways. ;( Our dishwasher decided to stop working so we are tired of doing dishes by hand....hmmm.....hopefully that will be fixed soon.

My dad opened his cards and gifts....

Then we had a photo shoot. ;)
(self-timer and all) 



My dad is so cool! He would do anything for me (and my siblings). He shows us how to be a parent and how to LOVE unconditionally. My dad is such an example of the PERFECT dad! I am so blessed to have him as my dad and I have recently been able to watch him be a "Poppie." It's such a joy! 

After lunch all my family headed home or moved on to their next destination. Mark and I picked up around the house and I finished baking dessert...
then we headed over to his parent's house.  We swan for a bit...Wyatt CAN'T get enough of the water!
Paw-Paw got him another toy to have at their house. ;) Since he started walking better he loves pushing things lately. He has really been a mini-me of Mark too! They thought this would be sweet. He LOVED it!
Wyatt has also loved feeding himself lately so....since he was outside and half clothed we decided "oh well!"

Boy,  he had a GREAT time!!!!

We watched Paw-Paw open his gifts and swan a bit more. 

Then we had another photo session. ;)


I also have a great father-in-law. Again, I know I say it a lot but I am blessed. Dr.Jerry would do ANYTHING for us. He has been there for us and helped out in many ways. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few months ago and has been nothing but strong. What an example he has been to Mark throughout his life!

We had such a great day today. I am so glad Mark makes such an effort to be an example of a great dad to Wyatt. He may be only 1 but SHOWING him what is important is such a huge thing to Mark and I. The best way to teach is by your own example and Dad, Jerry, & Mark....you ALL are such great examples. 

LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

  1. So glad y'all had a great weekend. There's one thing that I LOVE about you and motherhood...you capture it so well, I know you have your camera out all the time because that SWEET Wyatt smiles in every picture! Good job, I hate it when parents don't capture precious moments! Happy Father's day to Mark!
