After a week of highlighting each child of ours, I figure Dave needs a little shout-out too.
Because he loves these things I tell you! :)
Look how handsome he is:
…and I get to have that guy as my date for things.
Man I am lucky.
(That was with our friends who came in town from Ohio and other friends who live close but who we don’t get to see nearly as often as we would like.)
Last month Dave asked me out on a hot date.
He filled our bedroom up with balloons and I had to pop them all to find out where we were going.
Ha ha. Although I’m very kidding about that little balloon deal, Dave does take me out on dates every weekend which gives me my sanity. And he DID ask me out for a special date to see a baseball game last month…
…with all these kids as our double-date companions:
It was a Laurel/Priest (kids in our church who are 16-18 years old) “date night” and all the leaders took their wives along (Dave works with the 16-18 year old boys at church). It was pretty fun, I must say.
Here are the leaders:
Here’s the handsome guy I got to ride the metro with:Even carrying my jacket for me. I tell you…
He grew a beard over Spring Break.
Then one day he cut it into a mustache, and this blurry iPhone pic. is all I have to document that little fact:Dang!
I tried to talk him into keeping it for a couple days but it was gone within hours.
Here’s a little snippet into what a good Dad he is:
I love this guy. He’s my better half.
And I always get cheesy when I talk about him.
I always get in trouble too.
But he’s my #1 and I need to recognize that here for all my children and grandkids and great grandkids to know and be happy about some day.
