love you, dad...

Da-da.  Daddy.  Dad.  Pa-paw.  Papa.  Pops.  Grandpa.  Grandad.  

No matter what age you are, that man is important!  He loves his babies, his kids, his teens and his adult children.  And then he loves his grandkids and great grandkids. 

We are so grateful to our dads.  While they didn't teach us the art of making popcorn, they did teach us about life...how to work hard and how to love.  They have laughed with us, yelled at us, prayed with us, and even spanked us (yep it's true and we survived!)  They have impressed us, inspired us, admired us and encouraged us. We can't imagine having started a family or a business without either of them.  Their teachings, love, encouragement and support have carried us.  We are forever grateful.

I think I'm about 10 in these pics...oh how I loved that gum-ball machine.  And how I'm looking up to him...wish I could remember what he was saying.

Thanks Dads, for being you...thank you for loving us. Happy Father's Day to you both.  We love you!
