Happy Father's Day!

We have had a wonderful day celebrating Carl on his special day. Evie and I were real quiet this morning so he could sleep late. He told me that he has not slept late two days in a row since before Evie was born. It's going to be a LONG time before that happens again with Baby Boy coming soon. Evie was so sweet to wish her Daddy a Happy Father's Day. He was so surprised to hear her say that this morning.

  We all went to get bagels for brunch and then Carl took Evie on a jog to her tunnel that she loves so much. Then, it was our favorite time of the day . . . nap time! I took a nap and then headed to get some groceries.

     Carl and I played with Evie this afternoon around the house and then we headed out for the weekly concert at the park. We thought it was an Eagles cover band but it was The Devonshires. They played music from the 60's and 70's. We thought they were really good but not good enough to replace The Tams. People from Tennessee do not love Beach Music like us so they wanted to try something new this year.

Evie had a blast! We sat super close tonight so she could run around with all the kids. She danced and played all night barely stopping to eat her sandwich. It was really cute watching her shake her little body to the music. We ran into some friends so they sat with us but we were so close that we could barely talk since the music was literally right there. Evie got in a few dances with her Daddy and then we decided to head home. It was the third night in a row of a late bedtime so our little princess was ready for bed.

    We listened to one of our favorite songs today on the way home and it's so appropriate for Father's Day. It's called "Baby Don't Cry" by Jamey Johnson. The refrain is:

But baby don't cry - Your never alone
When you need your daddy
Just pick up the phone
And I'll fly
As fast as I can
And I'll hold your hand
And I'll make you smile again
But baby don't cry

I was about to cry myself listening to Carl sing that song to his baby girl knowing that he would drop anything to take care of Evie. My Dad would do the same thing for me! What a wonderful blessing our Dad's are in our life. Evie and I are so fortunate to have Carl. He takes good care of his girls with a smile on his face every day. I could not have chosen a better man to be the father to my children and it's so amazing to share this crazy ride of parenthood with someone who loves our children as much as I do.
