Dad, I'm thinking about you. Called you yesterday but no answer. I love you. As the years pass I become more and more amazed at how powerful of a man you are...especially in your simpleness and that BIG heart of yours.

Chay- The big Daddy in our house. I like it when you call me big papa

Chay is a great Daddy. He is an entirely different parent than me...and with much thought I have come to the conclusion that my children couldn't be more lucky. My kids will have a beautiful interesting life with a wide variety of love showed to them daily.

Here he his own little world. I sneaked this really shows the real Chay. Sometimes I like to pretend I am meeting Chay for the first the day I snapped this photo- oh yes, I would fall in love with him so fast...who wouldn't?

Chay- soft voice, loves the Lord, Mr. Fix-it, everyone's friend, breathtaking smile, has passion for his loves and hobbies, slightly sensitive, CRAVES the woman he loves, and wants the best for his children...Did I score or what?

ok so this post isn't about how much I love Chay...but how much we the family love him as the Daddy...

Chay is PRESENT. He is around, he cares, he likes to be involved. He is a family man.

He looks forward to being home...until he hears the girl's fighting or whining of course...but his girls are HIS GIRLS. So cautious about their well being.


Some facebook friend wrote some quote about how she was proud not to be her child's friend but to be her child's parent instead...and then all these other people "liked" her quote. So weird.

That is just weird.

Heavenly Father is the perfect parent and He is my friend. I am pretty sure He will allow and teach us how to be both to our children.

If at the end of the day the house is clean, dinner was made, and all the "to-do's" are all checked off (which is rare), I don't feel all that accomplished if I didn't take time to just play with the kids.

Chay plays with his children.

...warm afternoons with a bucket of sidewalk chalk.

building a feeder to their newly painted birdhouses...he put the girl's bird house experiment excitement to the next level.

I swear Chay owns more shirts than this green Brazil shirt

The lawn maze...see it in the background. The pathway to the Hidden treasure!

he worked on Mr. Snowman's hair for 10 minutes...

I might just be in trouble for posting these pictures. Cute hat Chay :) But seriously, Chay DOES not care what he looks like when it comes to play-

Thanks Chaylove for all you do for the family. Happy Father's Day.

Sounds like one good daddy :)

Not everyone understands the parent/friend balance. There are so many parents that want so desperately to be popular with their children that they don't make appropriate parenting choices - to the detriment of the kids. I would see it all the time at work, sad. So I agree with the weird FB status :)
