So Here's to You

I am about to join all the father-appreciating fools out there in writing abou the dads in their lives. Since my father probably won't read this, I'll only say this about him here: he is a REALLY great guy.

However, I'm about to say a little something about the father of my chillens. Jared is a "nicey-nicerton" who's almost always happy. Pretty incredible. But wait, folks: there's more! He's a fun dad, always ready to wrestle with Isaac or play with Noah. He is teaching our sons some of the most important principles they will need for life, including patience (by his example) as well as the Gospel.

He's a runner, an artist, and an RN, among other things. He has been accepted to Johns Hopkins for graduate school, so it won't be long until he is a nurse practitioner. Life has never been a piece of cake for him, but he usually comes out of the rough stuff with a smile on his face (or at least a good story to tell--as only he can do).
I think one of his best attributes is that he doesn't mind when I don't meet my own expectations (that's a big deal!).

We really lucked out.

Happy Father's Day, everyone!

Awe... I MISS you guys!!! We are really lucky that our hubbies are such good dads. John and I keep talking about how we can squeeze in a visit with you guys before you move and before I have the baby. We haven't figured it out yet, but I'm sure there's a way!

Yay for Jared! It makes me so happy to know that my friends have such great husbands and daddies for their children. We need to make sure to get together before you all move far away! Love ya!

Awww! Jared really is such a great Dad (my man is too!!!). Love how he's winking in the picture of Noah, and Isaac is INSANELY cute in the first picture...shoot, we miss you Laneys! Happy Father's Day! P.S., I love that you said that our Dad won't even look at your blog--ha ha, you still have to love that wonderful, sometimes clueless chap! I applaud you for blogging though...I have no time and no motivation lately (by lately I mean the last few MONTHS!)
