father's day 2014

Father's Day 2014 marks the 21st father's day without my dad.  Each year is a little hard.  I think of him often, but significant days are always a little bit rougher.  I am very thankful and blessed to have Paw Paw though.  He has cared for me as his own for over 9 years now.  I admire, trust, and love him as my own dad.  He is also (hands down) the very best Paw Paw.  Lexi and Paw Paw have the sweetest relationship.  The simply adore each other.

We celebrated Paw Paw, Uncle Daniel and Jason at Mimi and Paw Paw's house on Saturday.  We ate, swam, told stories, and had fun.  We got to snuggle our favorite baby too!  I can't wait to see Lexi and Luke grow up together.  Cousins are like siblings and we are fortunate to live so close to each other.

On Sunday we spent the whole day celebrating DAD!  Lexi and Jason usually go get donuts on Sunday mornings, but this Sunday Lexi and I went while Jason slept in.  We picked up a buffet of sweet treats and Starbucks for the man of the day.  After breakfast we went to Ruibal's and picked out some flowers for the front yard and stuff for lunch.  We spent the rest of the afternoon in our pool and Jason made a delicious steak for dinner.  It was low key and a perfect day together.  Lexi loves her dad so much and she spent the entire day telling him so.  Lexi hit the jackpot in the Dad department (as did I in the husband department)!!  We are truly blessed to call him ours.
