Happy Father's Day?

I am soooo grateful that my children had an awesome father while growing up. This is my all time favorite picture of the girls with their father. Isn't it so cute how they are curled up next to him in this pic? He used to read them bedtime stories every single night when they were little. He never missed a night. This night I just happened to capture him reading them stories from all things "MOTHER Goose" and was able to snap a quick photo. Mind you scrapbooking/papercrafts wasn't even on my radar screen back then...how sad. =D. So taking "good" photos wasn't either. He certainly was more of a "mother hen" most of the time. He was a great father to our children. Always plugged in and connected. He doted over those children as you can see from this photo they just loved him to pieces. I was a lucky mom because my husband always did night duty and changed dirty diapers. I was fortunate in that I was able to nurse both of my children and my husband would jump out of bed at the slightest whimper of the girls and bring them to me to nurse back to sleep. First he would change their diaper before bringing them to me so I would get a fresh sweet baby every time. I kid you not I never got up in the middle of the night not one time. I KNOW he was really something. I don't know how I lucked out he just always did this from day one. He really helped me out with the girls. He was their softball, basketball, track and life coach all day long. He is off surfing with our youngest daughter just this a.m. and it's his first time ever surfing. I hope he comes back into one piece. YIKES what are they thinking he is 50 and he doesn't even like getting his feet wet to wade in the ocean let alone SURF. Duh
