lover has a new hobby that has him spending quite a bit of time out in our garage working on his quads. the boy’s love to be out there amongst the parts, and grease, and oil. but lately, there’s a new apprentice in town,

my dad was here this week to hang out and tinker around in the garage as well. my grease monkeys…

do you know that song by tanya tucker called daddy’s hands? that’s what this picture makes me think of…

and this is how i remember his hands growing up : always working, confidently fixing things that were broken, and like the song says,

* daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin’.
daddy’s hands, were hard as steel when I’d done wrong.
daddy’s hands, weren’t always gentle
but I’ve come to understand.
there was always love in daddy’s hands. *

love you dad…thanks for all your help this past week!

  • * knock, knock
  • *who’s there?
  • *potato
  • *potato, who?
  • *potato, i forgot to get my brother!

like i said, killer 😀

sweet pea wants to stand so. bad. you can tell she’s already itching to join the ranks of the wildboys. i love the look of determination on her face.

and a combination of victory and shock when she makes it!

think of all we could accomplish if we were all that determined!

beautiful saturday to you!
