Happy Father's Day!

He didn't tell me how to live;
he lived,
and let me watch him do it.

Just as I have been blessed with many mothers in my life, I have been blessed with many awesome fathers, too. Today we pause and thank God for the men who have shaped our lives.

Dad is currently on a wonderful cross Canada trek in his home on wheels. Steve, the kids and I are going to spend Father's day at his uncle and aunt's pool celebrating the gift of all the V family fathers. We also send our love out to Tom on Father's day and wish him a wonderful day, too!
Thank you to all the fathers who have blessed us and continue to do so each and every day! We are glad God has place you in our lives. Hoping you all have a wonderful day! Here are some of the fathers we love so very much, last year at the cottage:
Tom and Ryan, enjoying a good "toss Ryan in the air" session. Tom has the great ability to encourage his boys to explore and learn. He works very hard to do what is best for his boys and is doing a great job with them!
Opa, Ryan and Connor at the campfire. Opa is a selfless giver and loves to spend time spoiling and playing with his grandkids. Dad would give anyone the shirt off his back if he needed it. He is generous in spirit and nature. Have a great day, Dad! We miss you!
Pake will do anything to get a laugh from his grandkids (or kids). He also has a generous and giving nature and does so much for all of his family. He also loves to keep things fun with his wildly embellished interesting stories. We love you!

Steve is a hard working dad who has the best interests of his kids always in mind. He loves to do fun things with his kids and will sacrifice to make things happen. Have a great day! We love you!
