Happy Father's Day Pat!

Good morning, for my My Time Made Easy post, please click here.http://themangoboysandme.blogspot.com/2011/06/my-time-made-easy-pretty-palette_19.html

I wanted to pop in to wish my wonderful husband a Happy Father's Day.  I am so very blessed to have him as the father to my boys.  Many week nights and weekends around this time of year, you'll see him sitting just like he is in this picture from Ryan's game yesterday.  This was about mid game, Ryan had played catcher for the first three innings, was sitting out the fourth and then went in for pitcher for the fifth through seventh innings (came home with a 4-3 win too :)!).  Not only is Pat a wonderful coach to his own children, there are so many boys that he has coached through the years on whom I know he has made a positive influence. He loves our boys so much, challenges them to work hard, love, have faith and be a high integrity boy/young man.  I love him so much and am thrilled that we get to learn to be good parents together.

Happy Father's Day Pat!

Today's card was inspired by the Stampin' 411 Sketch.
