Reasons to Celebrate

It has been a whirlwind weekend with packing, traveling, and a little bit of boating for good measure.  My  crew is back in their own beds and every single one of them snoring logs. Except for me- who feels the need to stay up just long enough that I am tired all day tomorrow- but that’s okay because I would be remiss if I didn’t:

 

Wish this guy a happy Father’s Day.  As we were driving from coast town, to coast town this afternoon I wondered at what age did I realize just how lucky I was to have my parents? And more precisely, did I ever really realize how lucky I was on Father’s Day when I was younger. Appreciation is a hard concept to ‘teach’ to children but my prayer is that slowly, little by little, with each passing year they more fully grasp this concept.

I know I’m lucky to have had my Dad, Poppy and Dale in my life- and extremely grateful to have Mr. Robinson and Pops with me to serve as a reminder of just how lucky I am, as our my children, on this Father’s Day.

And it’s a win for Kenley who managed to fanagle a tu-tu onto her little brother just in time for photos.

Okay, so maybe the plaid shorts hanging out the bottom were a bit of a giveaway.

So many reasons to celebrate.  Now it’s bedtime for this full-hearted Mama.
