Happy Father's Day!!!

We had a great Father's Day! It started at 7:15am when Joseph woke up and gave his daddy his present. Joseph made a shirt for his daddy using his handprints and footprints. It turned out so cute and "Dad" was so proud of the shirt and wore it all day (and got several compliments on it while we were out today)! Mommy helped Joseph by printing 50 pictures of Dad and J through out this 1st year and put them in an album! Last year on Father's Day was Joseph's 1st full day of being home from the hospital! (He actually came home in the afternoon of the 14th on Flag Day). Dad took lots of time looking at each picture and was shocked at how small our little 4 lb 10 oz preemie once was in the beginning! Joseph got a good morning nap and then we headed to the pool on the base to swim. The clouds rolled in and the wind kicked up so we stayed for only an hour before heading back home. After Joseph's afternoon nap, Pop (AKA my dad) came over and we all went to Outback for a wonderful dinner! Joseph enjoyed throwing all his toys on the floor in the restaurant and watching mommy pick them up one by one. After dinner "Dad" took Joseph on a 45 min bike ride and both boys had a great time! It was a wonderful day and I am thankful to have such an amazing Dad! I'm also thankful for a loving husband who takes such good care of his son. Joseph couldn't ask for a better daddy!
Present time, present time!
