This is a collection of photos from the last seven years that spans my time as a dad, from Slim’s birth in February of 2004 up until the present.
These images also highlight two men that are very important to my children, and two men that have been very influential in who I am as both a father and a person: my dad (known as Papa Timmy to the shorties) and my father-in-law (Papa Mike).
There is also one photo with my Grandpa Lowery. Slim was the only of our four children who was able to meet one of his great-grandpas before they passed away. I wish they’d been able to meet them all, but I know that my Grandpa Lowery, Grandpa Nolan, and Grandpa McFadden as well as Kick Ass Wife’s Grandpa Mirich and Grandpa Harris look down on our crew and smile.
Sifting through seven years of photos this morning was one of the best presents I could have received on this day.
But to top it off, I got my own Pillow Pet: Snuggly Puppy. Boo-yeah, people!
Happy Father’s Day.
