A day with Daddy!

Shane took this past Friday off! It's always such a special treat to have him home with us during the week!! This day off was a little different though. Shane decided that he wanted to spend some quality time with each one of the kids on Friday. Shane is one of the best Daddy's in the world. He makes his family his top priority. He works very hard to provide for us and in order to do so, he usually has to work long hours during the week. Because of his long days at work, weekends are meant for family time!!! When Shane does take a day off, he likes to spend it just hanging out with our family! Friday morning, after he took Corban to school, he decided to spend some time with Riley. He took him out for doughnuts!! This was such an extra special treat for Riley because he doesn't always get very much one on one time with Daddy! They had a great time. Then, later on that morning, Shane and Riley picked up burgers and went to Cor's school to have lunch.


(Corban had to dress up like a scarecrow for school!)

Corban was so excited to have his daddy and brother join him for lunch! Then Shane came home, dropped off Riley, and picked up Sophie. He has been begging me to bring Sophie downtown to his office so his co-workers could meet our precious princess. I just hadn't had a chance to do so yet. Shane's office was throwing a Halloween party on Friday, so he decided to stop by and take Sophie in to meet everyone!

He is so proud of his little girl and just loves to show her off! It was a special day for each one of our kids and I know they were so happy they got to spend some quality time just with their Daddy!

I don't think there's anything kids like better then some one on one time with a parent. What a great dad he is. If you want my recipe for the soup, email me at the address listed on my profile and I'll type it up for you. :) Have a great day. I hope you are feeling good.
