The Most Amazing Fathers in Books (and Real Life)

I've been lucky enough to know some amazing fathers. I started out with an amazing dad that has become more and more amazing as he has grown older. Here he is on his 90th birthday last January:




What an amazing father my husband is! Here he is in one of my favorite photos of him while he is rock hunting in Utah:

  1. Great shots of your Dad and Grandad, did you have the fire brigade on standby with the 90 candle inferno cake (not even sure how you would get them all alight)

    1. It is very, very scary to have 90 candles going at once!

  2. I like the photos of your dad; 90 is impressive! I always like Pa in Laura Ingalls Wilder's books.

  3. Wonderful photos, 90 is worthy of a grand celebration! I have Pa on my list with Arthur Weasley, so many others that I didn't think of. Surprisingly this was way more difficult than I thought. My TTT link

  7. It's so sweet that you included you dad and husband in this post! Atticus Finch really was a fantastic father, he's so humble and wise!

  8. Happy Father's Day to your Dad and Husband! Those are some classic favorites, I read Little House in the Big Woods over and over when I was a kid!

  9. Love the pics of your Dad and your hubby. Atticus Finch is probably my favorite literary father, although I loved Pa in the Little House books too.

  11. Love the pictures of your Dad and husband. Your husband looks so focused on his rock hunting! I've been lucky in my real life fathers as well. We have lots of overlap on our lists! I just reread Cheaper by the Dozen and I'm not sure there's a more memorable father than Frank Gilbreth!
