A few (several?) of my favorite photos of these two:
He is hands on, adventurous, patient, and loving with our girl. The whole thing melts me. Happy Father’s day to Chris, my father-in-law– who always makes me feel like the favorite (shhhh),– to my dad, who handled having a house of girls (and no sons) like there was nothing better in the world…
And to all the fathers out there–We need you. We love you. Happy Father’s Day weekend!
Chris has been putting in 80 hour weeks for some time now. Remember when I mentioned he was busy?
–I wasn’t lying. He is the executive director of conferences for an e-learning software company
and just got done with the biggest conference of the year
on Saturday. He brought me home a shirt and I slipped it on and we snapped this picture together. He looks tired. I look extremely happy. And I was. I have missed him.
I wrapped up an Apple TV in red tissue paper with white string for a gift (he’s crazy in love with it) and Greta got him a peanut butter cup ice cream cake from DQ. Chris got himself top of the line steak and shrimp and chicken. He whipped up an amazing meal on Sunday.
Chris is an outstanding father and husband. He is so gentle with Greta and after not seeing her daddy for weeks, you could not wipe the smile off of Greta’s face when she heard Chris’s voice. They are buddies. Chris said it was a very happy father’s day as he devoured melt-in-your-mouth steak, polished off a generous slice of ice cream cake, and fiddled with his Apple TV for a good 24 hours. But I am sure if I asked him next week–he would still be wearing the same smile and still proclaim, “it’s a great day to be a dad.”
