In honor of Father's Day, I ♥ Faces is hosting a "Let's Hear it for the Boys" theme this week. Photos must include at least one male face in them. I have 3 fantastic sons I love to photograph, a very handsome husband, a wonderful father and father-in-law I love to spend time with and both my grandpa's are still very active and fun to hang out with. So, "Let's Hear it for the Boys" could be the theme song to my life most days.
After looking at dozens of photos I could post I finally decided to use one that honors my dad ... Father's Day and all ... this is a photo I snapped real quick a few weekends ago. We were up at my dad's cabin (by we I mean: me, my 5 kids, my sister and her 3 kids and my other sister and her 3 kids, plus my mom, my dad, my aunt, my uncle and my grandma and grandpa ... it was a full house, I mean cabin).
Recently, for two of my son's birthdays my dad gifted them each GPS units and books on geocaching. So as my dad and his brother (the two 'grown-ups' in this photo) tried to wrangle 5 of my dad's grandsons and 4 of his granddaughters off on a geocaching adventure. This is so true of my dad ... he has always loved the outdoors and does everything he can to pass that love along to his 11 grandkids. I was glad they decided there were to many to try all ride in the gator. They posed for a quick photo and then they were off to try locate the 5 geocache boxes my dad had hid in the woods that morning. They had such a great day!
