A Father's Day Tradition

Disclaimer:  If you are my husband and this is before Father's Day, STOP reading!

For Daddy's first Father's Day, W and I took these photos and framed them.

June 2009

Then last year we took these and gave Daddy a photo album to put the previous year's photos in each year thinking we would make this an annual tradition.

I still love this idea, but trying to get a toddler to cooperate to take these pictures is one of the hardest things I have ever tried to do!  I think I must have two hundred out takes this year to get these three photos this year.  It wasn't easy before but wow does my two year old have strong negative feelings about taking these pictures!

In any case, here are  what I hope are the photos for this year:

This is the second attempt since the last pictures I took looked okay on the computer and just awful when I printed them.



  1. What a lovely tradition - i can just imagine this going on for years and years :)

  2. What a great idea, I know it will become a family treasure!

  3. what a cute idea, hope you can get the little guy to cooperate:)

  4. How great is that?! 'Dad' must love those.

  5. What a sweet idea! Way to hang in there and get some really great photos! What a treasure!


I love hearing from you! Please leave comments!
