Celebrating Father's Day

We woke up this morning and were able to surprise Jason with a few small presents before heading off to church. Awhile back, we had some friends over and somehow we got sidetracked and pulled out Jason's guitar. With the first strum, I think that the hair on all of our neck's stood up. Our friend started telling Jason what all could be done to get his guitar back in proper working order. I took note of all that was being said and stored it away for later.

I was able to get the guitar out of the house without getting caught. At least I wasn't caught for a few days! Anyways, my friend was able to take the guitar, get it all cleaned up and tuned. We purchased a new case and some hardware to hang the guitar on the wall. My friend also threw in all the necessary things needed to play and I was able to get it back from the shop in time for a great Father's Day present. Jason was completely on to me, but I didn't really care. I knew that this guitar meant a lot and I wanted it fixed up for Jason.

Jason is a great Daddy to our Abby Kate, Joshua, and Jackson. I am thankful for the husband and father that Jason is to our children and to me. We are all blessed beyond measure because of Jason.

Father's Day 2011
This guitar is a very special one, because it belonged to his father.

Jackson was eager to give Daddy's guitar a little strum.

We were able to grab lunch out at Cracker Barrel. I'm not really sure how well Joshua can play checkers now, but it was here that he learned from his daddy today.

Happy Father's Day to one of the greatest!
We love you!

Can Jason play the guitar? Did Dad teach him? i just can't remember him ever taking lessons or playing much.

I can't play very well, Tara. Dad taught me a few chords, but I've never taken the time to really learn to play. But I have incentive to learn now!

Jason should haul that thing on up into church and play us a tune. :)
