Father's Day


Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever. ~Author Unknown

My Dad.

*who doesn't like a grandpa that makes you laugh until you cry!

4 years: My Daddy can do anything!
7 years: My Dad knows a lot…a whole lot.
8 years: My father does not know quite everything.
12 years: Oh well, naturally Father does not know that either.
14 years: Oh, Father? He is hopelessly old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh, that man-he is out of date!
25 years: He knows a little bit about it, but not much.
30 years: I must find out what Dad thinks about it.
35 years: Before we decide, we will get Dad's idea first.
50 years: What would Dad have thought about that?
60 years: My Dad knew literally everything!
65 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.

Tim's Dad.

Happy Father's Day!

Tim's shirt is awesome!

Great pictures and post. I especially love the photo with all the kids. Their expressions are priceless.

Happy belated Father's Day to all the special fellas in your life!

I agree with Jill: that first photo is a classic! Zoe's hair is really growing now, isn't it? She looks absolutely lovely. Funny that Jill used the word "elegant" because that's exactly the word that I think of when I see Zoe.
