FD 2015.

Father's Day 2015. I woke up next to Greg (crabby and earlier than I wanted, but it's not about me). He's a stellar daddy. Eli and Annalee are blessed with his heritage in their lives. He cares about them, their whole little beings. It shows. Every.Single.Day.
What a treat!
And then my dad arrived today, too! So glad to give him a hug in person. He was such a positive, loving, and affirming dad growing up. What a gift. He's here just until Tuesday but we made a few sweet memories. Like dessert at McDonald's. Watching him laugh with delight at Annalee being silly. Seeing him nap while Eli and Annalee (who should have been napping) tried to wake him up. Smiling at them all doing "these are grammy's glasses.... just like that!" together. 

This is Eli's face when he first saw Grandpa Lloyd walk up when he arrived today.
Loved being able to give him a hug on Father's Day plus share on facebook about his Alzheimer's on The Longest Day (awareness about Alzheimer's on 'the longest day' of the year (which here is CRAZY long with sunrise at 5+am and sunset well, it's 10:10pm right now and I can still see down the block)). Fitting day. 

If only there were more solid men in the world.
