This is the perfect example of what a wonderful father my husband is.
At 6am my man loaded up snacks, drinks, and three kids with their fishing poles. Off they went to conquer the pond.
Fred also searched out "Nature Treasures" for them,
(documenting everything with the camera, to pacify me.)
They spotted this killdeer, with her eggs. W-o-w.
The guy that lives on the pond told the kids all about the enormous snake that goes around swallowing up the frogs. Yikes.
The Artist with her catch.
When I was growing up, I took so many things for granted. We were so blessed, so taken care of and loved. My family spent "family time" together at every meal (yes, three home-cooked meals a day.) My Dad would interrupt his own work each night to help us on our homework. We built snowmen & went sledding in winter, went to water parks & on vacations each summer. Our holidays were spent together, focused on the things that really matter. Our day-to-day living was about family. I truly believed that every family was like mine.
As an adult, my eyes were opened to the other kinds of families out there. Unfortunately, I've met too many husbands and fathers who don't seem to care at all about their children. Never again will I take my own family for granted. My father is the best father I could ask for!! And my husband is such a spectacular daddy to my kids. I love you, guys!!
My man loves his children. And I love him all the more for it!!
I also have pictures from Silver Dollar City, the creeks, several birthday parties, and a visit to Fred's sister's house. More posts soon!
