Happy Father's Day to the best Daddy ever!
Not many men would put their career on hold to take care of their son but it is very important work that you are doing! I know that it isn't easy, and it isn't always fun, but it is important. What you have given to our son is priceless! Parker is so lucky to have you for a Daddy. I love you and everything you do.

Way back in February when we went to the farm for Grandpa Hale's 80th birthday party we met up with our favorite cowgirl/photographer Torri. We met up with her to take some pictures of our little Parker and she was so excited to take us out to some nature trails she loves to shoot pictures at. We were really excited to see this location that Torri told us about and take some pictures there. While driving out to the trails our little man decided to fall asleep in his car seat. SOUND ASLEEP! Then when we got to the trails, we discovered the area was under construction! They were building all new bridges and adding a bunch of new trails. Torri was very disappointed because she really loved the area, but luckily we went there that day because she was planning on taking a paying customer there the next weekend and she at least discovered it was torn up with family.
We decided to get out of the car and walk through the trails and see some of the changes. We probably walked for a good 45 minutes to an hour with Mommy and Daddy passing a (heavy) sleeping baby back and forth! I though for sure he would wake up and we could make the best of the situation and take a few shots!
After our brisk morning walk we all piled back into the car and headed back to the Longgood Ranch. As soon as we pulled up to the house and turned the car off our little man woke up! Since we were there and he was awake we decided to shoot a few pictures at their place. Here is what I came up with:

Thomas had everyone over for a wonderful birthday dinner for his future bride, Chelsea. We all had such a wonderful time visiting and stuffing ourselves with the excellent dinner T made. Here is a great shot of Chelsea and Parker from the party!

Sometimes I just don't know how he does it all! While I am at work "bringing home the prosciutto" my wonderful husband gets the exhausting task of "rearing our child" as well as cooking/cleaning/running all household errands, etc. Today was no exception either. Mr. Man had dinner ready when I walked in the door from work and as soon as we were done eating he immediately headed outdoors to mow the lawn!
Is there anything I can do for you? Anything? Anything at all?

It's been almost a YEAR since I was given just about the COOLEST birthday present of all time! Not every one gets a brand spanking NEW niece, but me, I guess I'm just cool like that...if that's what the cool kids say...not too sure because I've never been one though. A cool kid, that is. Anyways, getting carried away here...back to the subject on hand:
MY BIRTHDAY PRESENT IS ABOUT TO TURN 1!!!
Which means I'm about to turn quite a bit more than 1...
But we won't worry about that now...
What we will worry about is...what do you get your birthday present when she turns 1? Or does she get something for you? I'm not quite sure...is this the gift that keeps on giving?
Hmmm...I'm pretty sure it's my turn though...
So, what to get her?
I might just have to sleep on this one!
The crowd around the torch was MASSIVE and if you wanted to get an unobstructed view you had to stand in line for a few hours...Sorry, Olympic Torch, but you are not a ride at Disneyland, so I will NOT wait in line for the perfect picture! I wanted a shot which minimized the crowd so I climbed atop a concrete barrier and took my picture! Voila, problem solved, a pic that is good enough for me and it only took a few seconds of my time...
Before I had Parker I would look at other older babies with pacifiers and think, "Man! That kid is way too old for that pacifier!" Well my baby is now almost 20 months old and guess what? He still loves his pacifiers and I don't see an end to it anytime soon! Oh, well...they make him happy...and they really aren't hurting anything! He'll grow tired of them eventually, right?!?
