Father's Day

Yesterday we spent a fairly quiet Sunday together for Father's Day. Caroline and I got up and made Jeff cinnamon rolls and coffee and the three of us ate breakfast together. After that, Jeff and Caroline took a walk and went to play at the park for a while while I got ready for church. Lately, Jeff has had to go to church ahead of us to help get things set up, but Sunday we were able to spend the morning together and go to church together, so that was a treat for all of us! We all got to take a nap after church and then waited on the rain that never came. It was thundering and lightening at our house pretty badly, so we decided to skip the trip to the pool, but it never actually rained.

We had a good, relaxing day, just the three of us!

Jeff is truly a wonderful Papa to Caroline; she loves playing with him so much. They have special outings that they do, just the two of them and I can tell Caroline enjoys those moments as much as Jeff does. They go visit the animals at the LSU Ag Center, take bike rides together, take walks together, go play at the park early on Sundays, and of course, sometimes mow the grass together. Jeff has fun with Caroline and lets her get dirty and play rough, but he also sits down to his fair share of tea parties and dance performances. He is wonderful example of a godly father and I know Caroline will come to appreciate that as much as I do. Caroline adores her Papa and I love him for (among other things) loving her so much.

I think it takes a special man to be a good father to a little girl, and Jeff is a wonderful father to our girl.

Here are some pics of my two favorite people together:

Jeff is a great Papa to Caroline, and that really became obvious to Jeremy and me this past week. She is lucky to have him.
