We decided to celebrate Father's Day a couple of weeks early because on the actual weekend, my in-laws will be taking us to a beach house (yay!) We could have done it next weekend, but frankly I am horrible at waiting for things. So, we gave J a schedule (if you know him, you know giving him an agenda is much more relaxing than giving him free time). He got to sleep in, open a new pair of shorts and an ice cream maker, cash to go hit golf balls and get a Starbuck's with, Chipotle for lunch, time to go to the gym, and homemade ice cream in the evening. A pretty good day for an overworked, but "type A" dad. Oh and he also got a note from me (which I had thankfully written ahead of time, because as I mentioned tensions were a bit high this weekend, and it may not have been quite as sweet if I had waited to write it until then even though I still meant every word!) :)
We absolutely love and adore you so much. I had great intentions of getting you a sweet card, but in my looking for one, Trevor started pouring his juice box on the card rack, so we had to abandon our mission. Instead I am just writing this for you. Words cannot express how thankful I am for you. I knew long ago that not only had I found my true love forever, the man who was perfect for me, but that also I had found someone who would be a wonderful, loving father for our children. Over the last 7 years of marriage and 2 years of parenthood you have already shown me that you are even more amazing than I imagined! Thank you for being an incredible father and provider for our family. You take such good care of us, and we adore you. I am so thankful to be on this adventure with you and am excited for all that is to come!
