Happy Father's Day, to the men in my life

Happy Father's Day!

I'm writing this a day in advance, hoping quite frankly, that I'll be in labor on the real day. If not, I still should be within the next week... bringing yet another generation into this, or rather, these, families-- a granddaughter and daughter to brighten the eyes of the men who are already so dear to me.

To my father, David. The man who kissed my boo-boos, cuddled me to to sleep, taught me to drive, celebrated my 17th birthday with me in Asia, took me skydiving, and picture taking in a tropical storm....

The man who walked me down the aisle on my wedding day...

 ... and helped rescue me when my firth Thanksgiving turkey failed and required fast cutting and a microwave. (Yes, a microwave!)

To my dad, the first man to hold my heart.
Happy Father's Day.

To my father-in-law, Matt. To the man who also celebrates another birthday today. The man who cried as he gave me his son...

...who taught me all about 'sausaging'...

... and what little I know about gardening.

Who taught me how to use a tractor (and lent me the coveralls so I didn't freeze, though he called me a baby for bundling up so!

The man who has adopted into his family with warmth and love, christened me 'my dearest Kathryn', and never stopped.

To my dad-in law, who has become a wonderful part of my life and my family.
Happy Father's Day.

To my husband, Aaron. The man who swept me off my feet, and almost off the road, with that first Harley ride in a tornado, who drove that Harley five hours in 45˚ weather to visit me at school, who cried when he asked me to marry him as well as when he met me at the aisle, who took me on my first beach vacation for our honeymoon....

... and across the world on adventures to Germany, Slovenia....

... Scotland, Portugal, and Paris...,

... who brought to this amazing adventure in London...

... and is about to walk with me on our biggest adventure yet.

To my husband, and the father of my baby girl.
Happy Father's Day.

My life wouldn't be the same without any of you, and I love you all for it.
