a father is...

***this is a re-posting from last year but with some new additions.


someone who makes you smile when you don't feel like smiling...


someone who feels your pain...


someone who will tickle you until you wet your pants...


someone who will share their hairstyle techniques...

who will hold you tight after you've been on a long journey...



someone who will lift you up so you can see the light...

someone who isn't afraid to give you kisses when others are watching...
someone who loves to have fun...

someone who values education...

someone who will help you appreciate the beauty of the earth...

someone who knows the value of a good nap...


someone who will teach you "marco, polo"...

someone who will help you walk through trials...

someone who will talk you through your problems...

someone with a fantastic sense of humor...




someone who gives the best hugs...

someone who will make you feel like a prince or princess...

someone who will sit on santa's lap when you're too scared to...

someone who is a good friend...

someone who will carry you when you are too tired to stand...

someone who is the best example of a super hero...

someone who would make his own father proud...



for all these reasons and more, this is why we love you.



happy father's day, ben.

hope you all have a great father's day weekend!
