To All The Men I've Loved Before...

**So, this was SUPPOSED to publish by itself yesterday. But, as with all things technology and Tonya--It didn't. Well, at least know that my heart was in the right place!**

I wanted to wish all the guys a Happy Fathers Day! I am even on time with this one, YAY! I hope that you all have had a wonderful, relaxing day filled with all of your favorite things!

Happy Father's Day!

There have been some pretty big shoes to fill in the way of fathers in my life, and it's not just because they all have big feet!!

My Dad always found the time to take us on a vacation every year. It is important to him to make sure we have that time together as a family, to enjoy each other and get to know one another better. We went all sorts of fun places--camping at Willow Flats (IN A TENT!!), City of the Rocks, scout camp (Jeremy and Buzz and I built an AWESOME raft one year!), and most recently to Saint George. He isn't a very openly emotional guy, but I always know that he loves me and will be there for me if I ever need it.

My Father-in-law has always made me feel welcome and loved from the first moment I started to date my hubby (which has been a LONG time ago!). He always has a kiss and a squeeze for me, and makes sure I know how much he loves my family.

And then there is my FABULOUS husband! **sappiness coming-be aware** I am so grateful that I was able to be sealed to him for all eternity. He is truly my best friend. He is a wonderful father, and always helps me to see the important things in my kids. Sometimes as a mom it is easy to forget what great kids I have, he reminds me. He makes me feel as if I am the most beautiful and interesting person in the world, even if I still have on my jammies and my hair is crazy!

There are so many more men that I could tell about. Grandpas, brothers, and friends who are all equally as great. But, I don't want this post to take the whole page! Just know that it warms my heart to see you with your children and grandchildren, and each of you has taught me something different! I love you all!
