Father's Day

Ry celebrated his first Father's Day this year :) We ate at T. C. Eggington's with his parents on Sunday morning.

Three generations of Jones: Doug, Ryan and Owen

Owen did great during breakfast, especially considering that it coincided with his normal nap time.
He colored....

And studied his belly

I have to take this opportunity to publically declare what a great dad Ryan is. He is very hands on, changing diapers, feeding, and babysitting so I can go out. He often gets on the floor and plays with Owen, and he can make Owen laugh like no one else. On the days that Ryan is home he takes care of Owen in the morning so I can sleep in. I also appreciate how Ryan takes over the manual labor when he is home, like putting Owen in his carseat and carrying him, getting him in and out of the car, and lugging around all of O's pack n play. Not a day goes by that I don't hear from Ry how much he loves and adores Owen.

You're a great dad, Babe. Thanks for selflessly serving and caring for Owen and me. So glad I get to parent Owen alongside you! Oh, and thanks for giving me a really really cute son :)
