Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the best Daddy in the world! Ryan is so blessed to have such a wonderful Dad like Matt. He is so good with Ryan and just loves him to the moon and back!
Also a very happy Father's Day to my sweet Daddy! I love you so much and appreciate all you do! We can't wait to see you again!

This morning we had our first family photo shoot and Ryan's first year pictures. It was fun but boy was it HOT! We were both working hard trying to get Ryan to look and smile! It's funny the things parents do to get their kids to smile, ha! I was a hot mess by the time we left. I can't wait to see how they turned out. I think we got some really good ones!
I wanted to do something really memorable for Matt on Father's Day. My friend gave me this good idea to do some finger paints on a canvas with Ryan. I thought he would love this and enjoy patting his hand on the canvas with messy paint. He loves to slap his hand on hard objects.
At first Ryan enjoyed flipping the canvas off his chair. He thought this was fun. Unfortunately the fun didn't last very long!
Thank goodness I put plastic over everything. I put paint on a paper plate and dipped Ryan's hand in the paint. Oh, he hated it! He didn't like being forced to "paint". We hurried and got at least something on the canvas. I think we were honestly out there maybe 5 minutes.
Here is the end result. Not too bad for a one year old! I think it will be something Matt can look back on as a sweet Father's day memory.
My in-laws took Ryan to their neighborhood pool this afternoon. Ryan had a blast and I think they did too. We enjoyed a yummy dinner at their house after the pool. We had a great day but we are exhausted. I am looking forward to crawling in my bed very soon.
