Dads Rock!

I meant to write this for Father's Day, but didn't get it done in time. Here are a couple of reasons why Ben and Molly's dad ROCKS so much:)

Yes, this is actually a picture of him jumping over Ben's head. We were having a great time at the park as a family playing tag together. And one time, Ben was "it" and was running right toward Aaron, so Aaron just ran toward Ben, and then jumped right over him. Ben was so amazed and delighted, that then we spent the next 20 minutes with Aaron jumping over about a leg workout!

Daddy knows how to teach good dental hygiene! Molly used to be really resistant to brushing her teeth, but after a few times brushing with Daddy, she has finally come around. Thanks Daddy!

This is a "selfie"...a picture taken by Aaron, trying to capture the image of him with the kids, sitting on a bridge, watching trains go by. One morning a few weeks ago, I was trying to get to some gardening, but couldn't find any time to myself. So Aaron just packed up the kids and left for some special trip that he had planned. It turns out that he had noticed a while before that there was a bridge near our area that overlooked an active train yard. So he just drove there, parked the car, and they got out and sat on the bridge for almost 2 hours, watching with fascination all of the activity in a real train yard. Praise God for Daddys!!

Is there a more beautiful sight in the world for me than this??!! I don't think so! A happy Daddy, holding his very happy kids...what a blessing in this life to have a loving family! Aaron had just spent the previous 10 minutes dancing like a crazy person, while holding both kids, who shrieked with joy the entire was like their own personal Six Flags ride!

Happy Belated Father's Day!
