Happy Father's Day

To my sweetheart, Mike.

I made him a Father's Day card with this photo on it, and the text, "Lead Me, Guide Me, Walk Beside Me". Mike is a great Dad to Jasper and I am so grateful for him. I love you sweetheart!

Mike & I have a family tradition to make homemade cards for our birthdays, Valentine's Day, our anniversary, Father's Day and Mother's Day. It is a lot of fun. Mike says that he has, "limited craft skills", but he still seems to come up with some creative ideas. My anniversary card was super cute -- I will have to post a photo soon.

Mike & I were talking before church about some of our favorite memories of Mike being a dad for the past 9 1/2 months. I told him that one of mine is when I was delivering Jasper. Mike was SO EXCITED when Jasper came out. He was the most excited I have ever seen him. He was doing a bounce/jump up and down action, and had to be with Jasper at all as the nurses attended to Jasper in different areas of the delivery room. I remember that Mike went to church 11 hours after Jasper was born so that he could bear his testimony in Fast and Testimony meeting about how grateful he was for Jasper.

One of my other favorite things about Mikes is a tradition that he & Jasper have that we call the "Male Mail Team". Mike puts Jasper in the Kelty pack and they go get the mail every night. Jasper LOVES spending time with Mike. Jasper gets really excited when he sees the backpack because he knows it is time for the mail male team to ride! This photo is from their maiden voyage in December.
I am also grateful for my Dad. He is a loving father who has always worked so hard for our family. He recently came to visit and had a great time with Jasper in our backyard in the teeny tiny pool. I love you Dad!
