Our Daddy's Hand

I think this is my favorite of all of the layouts I did this past weekend. It's a picture of Doug and the boys at Lazy 5 Ranch on our trip to NC. I found this poem entitled "My Daddy's Hand" and I changed a few words since we have the two boys. The poem reads:

Our Daddy's Hand
Daddy, take our hands in yours and you will plainly see,
how very much we need you now to love us completely.
As our little hands grow, we will need you even more,
Everything we do in life, we've never done before.
Teach us to be kind and loving, sharing and forgiving.
Show us through your acts of love the pure joy of living.
The years will pass by quickly and one day we'll be grown,
We will pass what you have taught us to children of our own.
Hold us always in your thoughts and remember when we are apart,
The special love between a father and a son.
Love, Conner and Ethan

It goes perfectly with the photo, don't you think?
