Father's Day

Happy fathers day da-da

Lincoln is extremely blessed to have so many wonderful men in his life. Not only does he have an amazing dad, this little guy has three grandfathers (Papa John, Grandpa H and Papa Mike) and four great grandfathers (Pawpaw, Papa T, Paw and Grandpa R). Wowza. I can spend every last minute of my time loving, nurturing and teaching him, but there are those things that he will need to learn from all these men. Luckily for Linc, he has more than a few great men to look up to.

This is Cameron’s first Father’s Day…well, I guess you could kind of count last year…..anyway...Unfortunately, we didn't have a chance to see everyone, but we have several get togethers and trips lined up for that. Otherwise, it was an awesome weekend :) Last night we had a family cookout at my sisters for my dad. It is SO fun to have the cousins together! Seriously, the entire night we just watched them interact, amazed by the way their sweet personalities connected. Lincoln seems to be the most vocal of the group. He is easily entertained, but easily bored….and not afraid to tell ya so. Gatlin has his vocal spells and seems happy and content with whatever is in front of him (if one of the others snatches his toy, he simply turns his attention to another). Kyle is the quiet one, but you can tell she’s always plotting her next move. She is so sweet and loves those little boys. Without being prompted she would stop what she was doing, walk over and hug them. She wasn’t so sure about sharing her Bumbo, though….what is it with those things? Watching these three grow up together is going to be such a blast!

And my dad….well, he was in absolute Heaven. Almost all his kids and grandkids in one place…I heard him say a few time that’s the only gift he needed. That’s the kind of man he is. All he needs is his family and he’s the happiest man on the planet…(and his camera, of course).

For lunch Lincoln had some awesome bonding time with his Paw. When it comes to my baby, I feel like my heart melts a hundred times a day. This was one of those moments. His paw is such an affectionate, loving, positive man. He’s always got a smile on and you can’t help but want to hug him at least five times before leaving.

Cameron’s Father’s Day I kept pretty low-key. I tried my best to let him sleep in all weekend. This morning we had sausage rolls and after church we went to the park for a walk and photo session. I made baked chicken, sweet potatoes and bacon-wrapped asparagus for dinner and the remainder of the night will be devoted to the Thunder game. I am more than grateful to have such a wonderful husband and fantastic father for Lincoln.

Linc's favorite place to be
Cameron- You are the absolute light of Lincoln and I’s world. I’m not sure whose eyes brighten up more when you come home after work. You have such an amazingly kind heart, strong work ethic and your Bill Cosby impression and original lullabies always have us laughing. Lincoln and I love you so much and are more proud of you every day.
