Happy Father's Day!!!

My Daddy- My First Love!!
This moment scared him...
...the one below was even worse!! He was terrified to dance with me at our wedding. He had never danced until that weekend. I told the band to make it short and slow. He even danced with my Mom that night. I don't know what he was scared of because he did a great job. I doubt if he'll do it again, though:)
I was so happy that I was able to spend Father's Day with him this year. From these next few pics, though, it looks like all he did was work!! He had only been at my house for an hour and was already pulling weeds. I had to take a picture of him out of my dining room window, thinking that he was going to be bent over and doing a lot of pulling to try to make those weeds-on-steriods-beds look anywhere even close to looking decent. I'm sure he had a hard time sleeping at night worrying about how bad my yard looked (he likes a very pristine yard). The landscapers were here today, Dad, so it actually looks much better.
He is the BEST picture hanger that I know!!! I had been waiting to hang everything until he came to visit because he can hang anything you want hung like nobody's business!!! (Plus, my husband puts lots of holes in our walls trying to hang something:) (Bless your heart, hubs. You have definitely improved through the years.) I have moved a lot and my Dad has had to hang stuff in lots of my houses so I'm sure that he hopes that I stay put for awhile!!
He's also very good at putting things together. In fact, he's just darn right handy!!! Boy, I wish he lived closer!!! He would have my house whipped into shape in no time. He's in his 70s and I can't even begin to keep up with him!! (Disclaimer: The high-water window treatments in the background of the below pic are from our old house and are a temporary fix until we get blinds and/or shutters and new window treatments.)
My father-in-law wasn't scared to dance at our wedding. He cut a rug all night long!! Thank you for raising that wonderful man that I am so lucky to have for a husband!!
My hubs sure loves "our girls". He lets them sleep on him...
...and even holds them like they're babies. I am so lucky to have found someone to love my girls as much as I do!!! It is evident by how you treat our puppies that you are going to be an incredible father one of these days!!
I know this post is a few days belated, but I have been trying to get this post done since Father's Day. I was busy with my parents on Sunday and Monday. Couldn't get it finished. Since then I have been trying to upload these photos. I can't begin to tell you how many times I have tried to get this to work in the last 3 days. Anyone else been having problems with blogger?? Anyway, I hope you had a Happy Father's Day, Dad. I really enjoyed having you here!!! I also hope my father-in-law, brother, brother-in-laws, cousins, friends and of course my hubby ("our girls" told me to include you) all enjoyed their day too!!! I love all of you!! Boy, I have been blessed with some great men in my life!!!

My dad would have been terrified of dancing too. I would have loved to have seen it though!

Ohhh, so sweet.
Can I borrow your dad for a weekend too? I tend to not hang much on my walls, because Im so bad at it, and I don't know where to start.
