To all Dads

I was out of town yesterday so I wasn't able to do a post yesterday so here is my short and sweet one today.

(Left) This is my Dad and Mom, Jim and Deanna. The best parents in the world. My Daddy has been there for me through some of the greatest times in my life and some of the hardest times. I was very blessed to get the Parents that I did and I find myself as I get older trying hard to copy their parenting ways as much as I can. I don't think I do them as much justice as I would like sometimes but.....I will succeed in it eventually. The picture on the right is my Husband Doug with three of our four boys. Austin our 5 year old didn't want to fish this day and this is the most current picture of them I have. He is such a great Dad to all four boys and a pretty darn good husband to lol. We spent the day playing ball in the back yard at my In-Laws and just enjoyed the day without having anything pressing that had to be done until later in the day. We then went to Austins (our 5 year old) T-Ball game and although they play for fun the kids are encouraged to try to catch the ball and if they get the ball they are suppose to go through the actions of trying to get the batter out. Well Austin made his Daddy very proud yesterday. He stopped the ball and then picked it up, ran to second base and stepped on it and got the other player out!!!! The other player still gets to run the rest of the bases, this is just T-Ball but hey he knew what he was doing and made the crowd CHEER!!! The kids each have one parent on the field with them to help out and Doug goes out with Austin. I saw the smile on his face from the bleachers. I only wish I had my camera ;( I hope everyone had a great Fathers Day and were able to remember all the good times they had with their Dads. Happy Fathers Day to my Grandpas who are with God now also I know you are watching over us everyday. I see little things here and there and think did Grandpa Hood or Grandpa Haslag put that there for me. Only because they remind me of something they would do. I like to think when I see things that remind me of them that maybe they had a little to do with putting that particular thing in my path so I would remember them at that moment. HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!

Ok so it turned out to be a little longer than short and sweet LOL.

Ok, so it was Long and Sweet!

Dad is on his way to pick up Austin. He insisted. I didn't argue! Glad to hear Austin did so well at the ball game. He is such a go getter!

I know how short and sweet becomes a longer blog post than intended. LOL (it's okay by me)

Very nice pictures of your family. That's quite a catch of fish they all had on their stringers. They look rather wet, too.

Way to go, Austin. I can just see him now...picking up the ball and running over to the base and tagging the runner "out". I can understand how you and Doug would be smiling away after seeing that. :)

I think of my maternal grandfather often. We lived right across the driveway from my grandparents so spent lots of time with him.

This is just "sweet".


I had a smile too, just thinking about Austin's little smile.
