This is month 6 in my year-long “How I View…” project.
(If you’re new to my blog you can see my other month’s posts – as well as the other 11 photographers I’m doing this project with – by clicking HERE).
I can’t believe the year is half-way done. That can’t be right, right? Excuse me while I take a few minutes to be in denial about that…
Anyway, this past month was June. And just as May’s theme was motherhood, June’s theme was fatherhood. Now obviously I can’t get as personal as I did last month because, well, I’m not a father. Additionally, my own father died only 4 days after I was born so I never really knew what it was like to have a father (lucky for me I had the best grandfathers around as well as some pretty great uncles). BUT I do know my husband is one heckuva father to our two kiddos. Every day I thank my stars I found this man of mine. He is patient. Kind. Hard working. Patient. Loving. Dedicated. Did I mention patient? He is simply the best. And we had a great time celebrating father’s day with him this past month. Here are just a few photos of what fatherhood looks like in our family.
- Taking us out to the ballgame and explaining the rules to our son.
- Chasing our two year old all around Yosemite; climbing through a hollowed out redwood with the kids.
- Being a good role model to our children (he finished 4th by the way!)
- Starting the campfire; playing in the tent.
