Father of the Year

Fathers Day was going to be special this year complete with homemade cards, meatloaf dinner, and peanut butter bars (yes, Dave peanut butter bars). But instead I woke in the middle of the night to throw up and didn't stop till the next afternoon. So this year Fathers Day was not about our favorite pop. Instead he took care of Sol by himself all day and played nurse to me. I was so very sick- I'll spare you the details.

I was really bummed I didn't get to spoil Dave. I don't do it enough. Last night a had a little break down and was telling him how sorry I was and he said this, in so many words:

"Don't be! I really needed that day. It made me remember how much fun Sol is right now and how great it is to be his dad. I think it happened for a reason" (right hun? It was something like that)

Its so gratifying to see your husband and your children bond. Sunday they were so bonded. In the evening I came downstairs to say hi and Sol came over and told me Hi, in his little way and then toddled back over to Dave who was laying on the couch and Sol laid his head on his Dad. That is goodness so sweet you can taste it.

Thanks, love, for all you do. You are a wonderful and patient Dad and an even more wonderful and patient husband.

Is anyone still checking this blog?

Hey team, the last time I posted was May... June has been a whirlwind. We've had fun and we're tired. A couple non-travel-log type updates.




At first I didn't like the short hair but I think its cause it made him look older. I definitely prefer it now to the Beatles do.


They still live in my porch and terrorize us a little but I LOVE the lack of spiders around my house. We normally find a few beasts like this each year
(insert big scary picture of spider here, I couldn't find it)

but not this year. Thank you snakes! Please just stay hidden.

We love a loopy sweet, anxiety ridden Ella girl. She loves us too. She especially loves our Sol. I found her laying next to him in the living room yesterday like this:

She just laid there while Sol draped toys all over her. What a good playmate.

Next post will be travel-log-esq...enjoy!
