This year we had a father’s day weekend for Matt. We made stir fry (thank you to my friend for a fabulous recipe) on Saturday night and then Sunday morning the kids gave him a picnic brunch (his meetings were canceled!) where they made German Pancakes (thank you, again, to a great friend with an amazing recipe).
Jackson gave him a wallet he had made that had coupons in it. One was to help him bring in the groceries and the other was allowing Matt to be “player 1” when they play the wii (a huge sacrifice for Jackson). Reagan and Madie both gave him paper ties that they had made which he proudly wore to church. (Lincoln and Mom gave him a pair of pants—I know, my kids get their creativity from me ).
Matt, I am so grateful for the amazing dad that you are to our kids. You guide them, protect them, teach them the gospel, tickle and laugh with them constantly and love being their dad. Our kids are happy, confident, intelligent, strong, and love the gospel because of you. Happy Late Father’s Day!
And happy Father’s Day to our two wonderful dads!
