Happy Birthday Daddy.

Limiting pictures of Daddy was a challenging feat. I just pray that Blogger will keep them on and not drop any of them. I posted a few days back about how much of a "hands-on" father Steve is. Here are just a few pictures to illustrate my point. Enjoy!

Running through the sprinkler. Notice no one has bathing suits on. They weren't planning on it but Steve has a way of joining in the fun when the boys get a whim.

With Aaron at the New Years Eve Party at the Children's Museum

Christmas Eve with their buddies

Collecting cicadas to bring back to people in Michigan who wouldn't get to see them. Steve was a little nervous about picking them up with his hands so I found two beach buckets in the back of the car.

Noah was about 3 when we took this picture of them in the mall.

Daddy changing Noah's first diaper in the hospital. I don't know if the picture does it justice, but Steve's expression is very confused. He became an expert quite quickly.

Because we live in Michigan, there are a lot of pictures at the beach

Daddy swinging Noah while I was pregnant for Aaron. These are the only pictures we have of me pregnant with Aaron and the boys are fascinated with them. While I was posting them this morning, Noah said, "Wow Mommy, I bet you made big splashes with that tummy!"

Showing his muscles at the beach. Once again, we're not in bathing suits. This happens a lot in Michigan. You go to the beach to watch a sunset and you are drawn to the water. Usually when we DO bring our suits, the water is too cold or the waves are too high.

Playing with Aaron

Happy Birthday Daddy. We Love You.
