Fathers Day

Well it has been a long time, I basically have taken a complete break from the blog to do contracting work as well as working at night for my day job. Allyson has done a great job keeping the blog up and it will be something we will cherish one day and be able to look back on.

I figured father's day would be a great time to start writing again. All I can really say is that my first fathers day was indescribable. It is hard to put into words how blessed I am to have two beautiful, healthy and loving girls. I hate to be cliche about it but they really are growing up so fast. It seems like it was yesterday when I was a deer caught in the headlights having to deal with two helpless babies, both just over 5lbs and one with a broken arm. Even now it seems very surreal that I am a father of twins.

I must say I never new I could love something as much as I love my two beautiful girls. It really puts life in perspective, especially in todays world. I really never knew how much something could weigh on your heart everyday like the responsibility of raising two children, and raising them to know that God loves them and I love them and will do everything in my power to protect them.

I do want to say a special thanks to my father. He is a man, husband and father that I still learn from everyday. He has taught me to be passionate, to be involved and to follow your heart and through our Savior you will find the strength to accomplish anything. I still have a lot to learn, but without his love and guidance I would not be the man I am today. I truly hope I have and will continue to make him proud.

So it is a little late, but happy fathers day to all of you dads out there, enjoy the ride, dont get caught up in the small stuff and take time to be there for your kid(s), because we will all blink and the ride will be over.
