Dad, Dad He's Our Man!

I feel very lucky to have some wonderful dad's in my life.

Because this is officially Matt's third father's day, here are three things I love about Matt:
1. He never complains when I tell him we are having cereal for dinner AGAIN!
2. He is friendly to everyone and is genuinely interested in what others have to say.
3. He is the best father to our boys, and the best husband a girl could have!

Happy Father's Day!

Some notes on the other dad's in my life...

My dad
is the greatest. I have tons of great memories of my childhood with my dad. My favorite would have to be our trip to Disneyland. It was so much fun to spend that one on one time together (even if it was a bribe!) My favorite memory of my dad as a grandpa is the time at the cabin when the kids were laughing at the bubbles. Pops was video taping and when we played back the video you can hear just how hard he was laughing at how funny the kids were! That is one contagious laugh! Love you Dad!

My favorite thing about my Grandpa Griffin is that he still calls me Kris. He is the only one who calls me that and I love it. Grandpa has a wonderful sense of humor and even in difficult times he always keeps people laughing. He is also a whiz at crossword puzzles...I guess those things really do keep your brain young!

I have only known Russ (Matt's dad) for about 7 years but one thing I know about him is that he would do absolutely anything for his kids. He is so thoughtful and generous. When we lived in Denver, Russ would cook WONDERFUL meals for us and enjoy them with us. We sure miss living close and miss Russ' famous pork chops!

Imagine going to the airport the day before your wedding and meeting your new in laws for the first time. It would be an understatement to say that I was nervous. However, all of those feelings melted away when I met Theo and Mike (Matt's Step dad). Mike is one of the friendliest people I have ever met and welcomed me into his family with open arms–what a blessing. He is also so smart, always has good advice and someone you always want to have on your trivial pursuit team! Can't wait so see you next week!

what a sweet homage to the dads in your life! you are seriously the most thoughtful person i have ever met. just one question: is that a giant fish pillow?

Seriously, anyone who hasn't seen the giant fish pillows in person (yes, I said pillowSSSSS), is officially invited to come over and take a peek. They are quite a site!


I'm sure Matt's great and all but you didn't mention my dad.

I'm going to steal one large fish pillow.

I really want to see that video now so I can laugh with your dad!
