happy birthday dad + easter weekend snapshots

sending a very happy birthday wish to the first man i ever loved, my dad
"she'll change her name today.
she'll make a promise and i'll give her away. 
standing in the bride-room just staring at her. 
she asked me what i'm thinking and i said 
i'm not sure- i just feel like i'm losing my baby girl.
she leaned over
and gave me butterly kisses with her mama there, 
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
walk me down the aisle, daddy-it's just about time. 
does my wedding gown look pretty, daddy? daddy don't cry
oh, with all that i've done wrong i must have done something right. 
to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night. 

i love you, dad
you are everything i could ever hope to have in a father and so much more
and parks is so lucky to have a papa like you
wishing you many, many more
and wish we there to celebrate with you. 
our little family on easter sunday
such a meaningful and special day 
'he is risen' 
and we are so grateful for his sacrifices and the love God brings to our lives 
parks' first easter basket! 
i loved playing the easter bunny for the first time
when we brought him downstairs he started to smile and coo
it was adorable.

i miss you all very much 
my cousins taylor and kelly {one of my biggest supporters} on my gram's farm
