happy father's day


To the only man who will still love you even after you step all over him. Dads are the best.

We had a low-key father's day this year. As much as I really believe in celebrating each occasion with as much fan fare possible, I am just so tired these days. When Porter stops waking up every few hours I will stop making excuses. I tried to make a little photo/video montage, but my lack of knowledge impeded my intentions. Because Brigham is the nicest husband and dad, or because he is used to me, he didn't mind. A mushroom and onion omlette for breakfast and some hand-made cards summed up our celebration of the most important man in our lives. Dinner at my parents' house (speaking of Father's day and another man of huge importance in our lives) followed by flashlight hide and seek in the house

As for the photo above, that picture was taken today, in fact. I had wanted to get a shot of all the boys in a pile with their dad on Father's day, but by the time we got the flash working (ie Brigham got it working for me), Will had found a new perch. Brigham took it lying down.

Alexandra, I think that is the best Father's Day picture I have ever seen! Glad you caught it!

Ashley said...

Yeah, getting that picture totally tops the cologne I gave Tyler for Father's Day. That one is going to keep giving for years!

P.S. Mother's Day and Father's Day are exhausting.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who forgot...I mean kept it low key. :) That is such a great picture! Brigham is such a wonderful father!

I am confident this could be a top contender for Awkward Family Photos. After seeing Katie's awkward goat incident captured on film, I am thinking the Smith family may just know how to be in the right place at the right time with camera in hand.

Hilarious!

That picture says it all. Life is exhausting with little kids. Brigham seems like an awesome dad!
