Father's Day 2011

Well we had a good weekend, but I wouldn't say great. Unfortunately Manny has been sick with some kind of fever virus. No real symptoms, just high fevers that we can't get down. It's the worst I've ever seen my poor guy, and it just breaks my heart. I think he's starting to improve, and I am so thankful for that. The unexplained fevers just made me nervous, and really got me thinking about how blessed we are that he's been in such great health his whole life. Unfortunately that's not the case for everyone, and I am always praying for those of you who are dealing with things much more serious than just a fever.

We spent the weekend at my parent's house so we could help with the opening of their amphitheater. On Sunday morning, we got up to head home, but spent a little time hanging with the fam first. I took these pictures of my dad with Manny and just love them. They are so cute together and Manny just adores his Papa! Thanks for being such a great dad to me as well as a wonderful Papa to Manny...we love you so much!! 
They helped me take the DAD pictures of Manny. I tried to do it earlier in the week, but it was HARD to do without the help of someone else. I didn't think we were going to get to do it because of how sick he'd been, but Sunday morning he was in a pretty good mood so we tried it, and I love how they turned out. Looks a little different than when I did it last year, huh? Patrick wants me to do this every now, buuuut I'm not sure how long that will last. Can't you just see me trying to get him to pose when he's 15? :)
After that, Manny and I headed home so he could see Daddy! Patrick was on call this weekend and had a very busy weekend, so he was very excited for us to get home...and Manny was equally as excited to see him and give him his gifts. It was SO cute!

I ordered a stainless steel water bottle from Snapfish using this picture of them, and Patrick loved it....but so did Manny. You'll notice he has it in all of the pictures...he didn't want to let it go. :)

And a final shot of Manny and Daddy on Father's Day 2011.
They are such a cute pair, and I love watching them together. I'm so thankful to have these guys in my life! :)


  1. Sweet photos and a GREAT idea!!

    We are hosting a link party called “Help a Momma Out” every Tuesday! This would be an awesome link up! I would appreciate if you'd add it. Thanks in advance for your consideration :)


  2. love traditions, even if they aren't willing to participate ;) manny looks like such a little boy!

  3. I LOVE the idea of doing the DAD picture annually. When you can't get him to pose anymore have a book made of all the years he did pose :)

  4. Your boys are precious!!! The "DAD" pics are one of my favorite things I have ever seen!!! I am still trying to get Cilla to do it! Better late than never!

  5. Oh I love the DAD shots! I wish I had thought of that. It would be so special to see how the babies change each year :)

  6. Those DAD shots are adorable! What a great idea!

  7. Poor baby! Hope he's feeling better. The pics are great!

  8. That is a fantastic idea for a father's day picture! I LOVE it! I kick myself for not thinking of it myself! haha!

    Love all the pics! You have two very lucky men in your life to have a wife and mama like you! ;)

  9. I just love the letter pictures! I so wish I had done this last year for the comparison.

  10. love the dad pictures!!! super super cute.. his smile i just adore!

  11. This is such a cute idea! His smile (with his perfect little teeth) is to die for! The ladies are going to love him:)

  12. What great pictures, absolutely adorable! Hope Manny is feeling better!

  13. Love the "DAD" pics.
    You look so much like your daddy!
    Also, my boy has had the same fever. His pediatrician never found a "focus" & when they did all of his blood work, it all came back normal.
    We've been trying to get rid of his fever since Monday. I feel so bad for them when they don't feel good.
    Glad Manny is feeling better. I'll be glad when Jubal is. I need a good night's sleep. ;)

  14. I love it. What an awesome idea! Glad Manny is feeling better.

  15. I absolutely LOOOOOOOOVVVEE the "DAD" idea. How cute! And Manny is so adorable. If he was not feeling well when you took the photos, you sure can't tell! =)

  16. I hope your little guy gets better soon! Morgan has had a nasty little bug too thats lasted for 3.5 days so hope hes doing much better now.

    I love the DAD idea and will have to remember this next year.
