Happy Father's Day!

What a happy day to celebrate David on his first Father's Day...We had a rough day on Friday as David was rushed to the ER because he had a kidney stone! Never had one before and he was in A LOT of pain! More pain than he's ever experienced! The nurses and doctors said having a kidney stone is worse than childbirth!! WOAH!!!Thankfully, the kidney stone was gone in about 12 hours and he's feeling back to normal on this special day. Thanks to my sister Jen and cousin Katie who swooped in to save the day to watch Lily while I was with David in the hospital.

Here are some pictures from their special time together.

Today they asked all the fathers to stand up today at church while the congregation held up theirhands and prayed for them; that was a very touching moment that made yours truly cry. They ask the fathers to stand up every year on Father's Day and it always stung when David couldn't stand up. Was neat to see all the fathers; old, young and in between stand up proudly as a father celebrating their accomplishments as a daddy.

Lily wore a special bib to celebrate her daddy today.

Lily is only 10 weeks old, but she told me some things she loves about her sweet daddy.
