father's day came and went without any sort of blog "tribute" to this amazing guy. and that just doesn't seem right. i'm so grateful for not only the man he is, but for the fantastic father he is. he's such a blessing to our kids and i am so grateful he is the one i get to be on this parenting journey with.
i think this quote by president james e. faust, a former leader in our church, describes the kind of father dave strives to be. "noble fatherhood gives us a glimpse of the divine attributes of our father in heaven. a father should be many things. he should magnify his priesthood and be an example of righteousness. in companionship with his wife, he should be the source of stability and strength for the whole family. he should be the protector and the provider and the champion of the members of his family. much of his love for his children should flow from his example of love, concern, and fidelity for their mother. by his uncompromising example he should instill character into his children."
we had a great day spending time with both of our dads. i am so bummed i didn't get a picture with my dad. we left my parent's house and headed to kari's house for a great father's day bbq. it was a great day spending time with the wonderful men in our lives.
pete went to get on the hammock and totally flipped out of it. it was hilarious (and i was glad i captured it on camera...although maybe he isn't)
we love you dave/daddy! you're our superman!
