Father's Day

"How pleasant it is for a father to sit at his child's board.  It is like an aged man reclining under the shadow of an oak which he has planted"
-Voltaire

Happy Father's Day...from your three girls

Scarlett-2007

Mischief-2008

Mayhem-2010

Like the trees you've planted...may our girls grow to be strong yet resilient, planted in a firm foundation



UPDATE:  Mischief inquired this morning..."Momma, when is Kid Day?"  Interestingly, I remember asking my Father that very same question when I was little!  To which he thoughtfully paused...and answered, "well, it's every Saturday."  Love you Dad...for never dismissing my silly kid questions

Thank you MK...how did T treat his Daddy on Father's Day?

We made Dad his favorite breakfast and took him on a bike ride with picnic lunch. Lovely afternoon. Like Mischief's perfect tea party, I'm sure something or someone will break before day's end! :)

I say it always takes a real man to raise girls.
Not for the weak or timid. Looks like your man has got what it takes.

C'mon, PVE. We all know that John is putty in their hands...all three of them. ;-) He doesn't have a prayer.

I will be to Jennifer to keep those youngsters in line.
(And she'll do a good job.)

Gail: he has to keep me in line too...gives me timeouts when the Mother-daughter drama is stirred up
