Why do you love Daddy?

Austin:  Dad always is nice to us and he spends time with us and he works to get money for our family and I like it when he helps me build my faith.

Mya: He is nice to me.  He does nice things for me.  He loves me.  He likes to be with me on Father's Day and he always treats me good.

Aliyah: Daddy? Daddy...Daddy

Amy:  Eric you are one amazing example to our children.  You are a kind example of the love the Savior has for each of us in this family.  I am more and more grateful for you everyday.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about you.  I am one lucky girl and our kids are lucky to have a daddy who takes his fatherly responsibility seriously.  Is it any wonder that they ask  million times a day when daddy will be home and why they each love to be right next to your side at all times?  They feel loved when they are near you.  It radiates from you.  We love you back!

Father Son Campout

The Baton Rouge Stake has a great tradition of holding an annual Father/Son Campout in the spring.  Austin and Eric are faithful attenders!  Two days of swimming in the lakes and creeks, fishing, and eating junk food.  What could be better?  

Can you see Austin and Uncle Seth in the tree?  Merrick and Jack decided to stroll through the water instead.

Chain of Love Complete

Amber this is for you!  Thank you, thank you!  Eric's pancakes somehow taste better when he wears this little number.

I got my hair cut and colored the other day...I am in love.  Eric loves it equally!  Austin is not so sure because he says it does not look like me.  Aliyah only voiced her opinion in screaming ecstatically that I was home from the salon and saying "Mommy Home!" 45 times.  Mya was so in love that she talked her daddy into taking her out to get her hair cut right away.
