Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all that I have called "FATHER"...Couldn't ask for a better father for my children.
He is a wonderful example of all the things I try to teach my children daily...

Curt loves his work and no matter what his job, he has a passion for it.

This guy knows how to play hard.
Ultra competitive doesn't even come close to describing him in a game or competition.

Curt loves people. It doesn't matter the social status, religion, culture, or the language, he just wants to get to know them. He seriously makes friends EVERYWHERE he goes.

I don't think there is a piano recital, game, swim meet, parent teacher conference, awards assembly or church talk that Curt has missed his children participate in. He loves his kids!

He honors his priesthood through his leadership and love to us and to those he serves in whatever position he is called.

Each year, one of his gifts is a photo tie with a picture of his kids.
He, as well as the kids, are always surprised to see which picture he will proudly display!

The tie wearing tradition has come a long way.
This was what he sported in 2000, just 9 years ago!

My dad...
What do you say to the man who loved you, raised you, taught you and still to this day continues to do all those things through his example.
My father-in-law...
The sweetest, most humble and gentle man you would ever want to meet.
We see so much of our "Grandpa Chuck" in Curt. It brings us comfort and many a laugh as we realize "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree". We miss you, Grandpa!
To all these men...I LOVE YOU!
Happy Father's Day!

Wow! I love that photo of the younger Brown kids. I remember when I first met your family they were about that age. Does it really go by that fast? What am I going to do with my kids when they've grown like yours? Ok- scratch that. I will count myself blessed if they grow like yours! God job parents!

Awesome entry, and tribute to the "daddies" in your life. I haven't blogged in a few months so it's good to have a few minutes and catch up. I didnt know about Curt's tie tradition! You gotta show me that next time we come by!
Hope you had a good 4th of July!
