Happy Father's Day!

Today is Father's Day and so we honour the dads in our lives. I think sometimes dads get the short end of the stick. Moms get all the glory! So, I am going to take a little time and honour 2 very special dads in my life.

First, is my daddy. Love my Dad! He is awesome. Seriously, I couldn't ask for a better man in my life. Not only is he the smartest man I know but he gives just about the greatest advice ever. His best piece of advice - 'get some fresh air'. When we were kids that was dad's answer for everything. It's a running joke in our family but really if you think about it - what mood can't be cured by going out and spending some time with nature?!?! Now, that I am a Mom too one of my favourite things is to watch my Dad with Maya. There is just something about it that puts a smile in my heart. Anyway, enough gushing. To my Daddy - I love you! Today on this day for you and every other day too!!

Here is me & my Dad at Christmas last year....

And here is another one taken 5 years ago on my wedding day. I include it just because I love this picture.

And here is the card I made for him....

And an inside view...

And with all this talk about Dads, how can I forget my baby girl's daddy! Pat is such a fabulous dad to Maya. I just love to watch the two of them play together. This past year and a half has sucked in terms of him being out of a job but the time he has spent with Maya is priceless. It is something that I think she has so benefitted from.

Here is the 2 of them enjoying a picnic in the living room...

And here they are together at Maya's birthday party last summer...

And here is the card Maya made for Daddy (with a little help from Mommy). She insisted on glitter.....
And the inside....

And last but not least, a Happy Father's Day to all of the fabulous Dads out there!!
