fathers day 2013

happy (belated) father's day to all the wonderful dad's out there!
to my own dad, who has been the greatest possible dad a girl could ask for. who has spent countless nights up late working on homework with be, gone out of his way to make it to every sporting/cheer/dance event, and traveled countless times to come visit me up at school. he has taught me so much and is the most selfless person i know. i love him more than anything and especially now love watching how much he adores my son. 
and to my husband, i couldn't have picked a better person to be sam's hero. seeing how sam's face lights up every day when ben walks through the door speaks for itself. ben is so hands on with sam and there isn't a thing he wouldn't do for our boy. as soon as he gets home from work, before he even has a chance to take his tie off, he gets down to sams level and plays with him for at least a half an hour. he is the first one to jump out of bed at night when sam starts crying. and he will willingly carry around sam and my girly diaper bag for hours while out shopping when sam isn't feeling his stroller. 
i can't count the number of times i have walked in on ben reading the scriptures to sam to get him calm and ready for bed. it is the sweetest thing and i love watching the relationship between these two grow. i know that it is only a matter of time before sam wants nothing to do with mom and will favor his dad and want to be just like him. and i will happily stand on the sidelines. 
we love you, ben. and we wouldn't trade you for anything in the world. sam and i are pretty dang lucky to have you. 

we spent the evening at ben's parents house for dessert and played around outside till it got dark. i love summer nights!
