Okay, people... I just about tried to google ideas for naming this post. It could have been, "Happy Father's Day" or "My Dad." We will see what it actually ends up being!
I knew if I googled something, nothing would actually fit the true character of my dad. The options my brain was bringing me were "Pull Up Your Panty Hose," and "Don't Miss Me too Much." Those are things my dad says a lot. Haha. So I guess I will name this post after panty hose and you all can question my sanity.
For Father's Day, I gave my dad a video with a lot of pictures I had collected. I was trying to make it for him for his 50th birthday in February, but that didn't happen! My brother and Ashley decided to *elope* (just kidding) so I didn't have a lot of time. Then we accidentally drove two hours in the wrong direction trying to get to my dad's birthday party at my own life long home. Can I win at life? NO! I can't!
I think I have so many wonderful stories to tell! What I mostly want to tell you about today is, my wonderful dad, and my trip to see him for Father's Day, too!
If I could think of the most beautiful place on earth, it would be Grace, Idaho.
I was blessed enough to go home for Father's Day and spend the day with my parents, sisters and brother! It was such a joyous day! We watched the video I made for my dad about ten time, we took a trip to the dam my dad had been working on, and we went on a beautiful bike ride. I couldn't get over the fact that there were wild flowers growing on the side of the road, and it was so green! Grace is so peaceful and unbelievable in the summer. It's such a breath of fresh air.
As we watched the video of my dad and as I created it, everyone in the world would be able to tell that he is an all around good guy. No one has to convince me of that because I already know.
Work ethic is put into action by my dad himself. He is sturdy, protective, reliable, loyal, steadfast, unshakeable, generous, hard working, and never gives up. I have loved looking back on an old peice of paper my mom once showed me. It has all of the goals they had when they were first married. I loved it because they have exceeded far more than what they had set goals for. That is the power of hard work.
I loved every second of being with my family. I'm so grateful my sweet husband was able to stay with my children. The kids also had the stomach bug while I was gone! Bless your heart Blake. You're amazing.
Happy Father's Day from the blog, dad!
Hi there. I'm Nicole. I'm a small town girl from Idaho who loves photography, my Savior and my family. You'll find me in the mountains with my camera around my neck begging my husband, "lets just take one more picture of your S'more." I love to blog about my photography sessions, family life and much more! Come read along.
