fathers


oh, and i know
that the father of our little family
deserved far more
than what we had to give,
but i do think he was pleased
with the big breakfast
with all his favorites:
fried potatoes, eggs, hot muffins and fresh berries;
a book from all of us
telling him all the reasons
he's the apple of our eye,
and an impromptu picnic in the forest.





and then of course there are
the fathers that raised us,
who had to settle for electronic cards
but deserve instead
volumes of a similar such book.
and then the grandfathers!

oh, how we love you!!!

So glad that Alex got treated well for Father's Day---he's such a great dad. (But I bet he would have loved some bacon or sausage with that breakfast. :)
