One of my top 5 moments of my life happened today. I introduced my baby boy to the most magical place on Earth- Pelican Lake, Minnesota. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have been day dreaming about this day for years. Years before I even met my amazing husband, I was picturing my future kiddo catching baby frogs, letting minnows nibble his/her toes, evening pontoon cruises, trying to get the biggest spray while water skiing, playing kick the can for hours, sitting in the adirondak chairs for family pictures. Of course it will be a few years before Ford is doing all of that, but we started today with an assisted toddle down the dock, a long look out at the lake (and Ford trying to wiggle his way off the dock and into the water), playing with sand and rocks, and dinner in his great grandpa's highchair. This is my favorite place. My ultimate happy place. Where the living is easy, you don't wear a watch, and there is no need to pack much more than a swimsuit.

On another happy note, I just want to say Happy Father's Day to all the dads in my life, with a special tribute to my one and only on his very first 'real' Father's Day. Thank you for everything you do for Ford and me. We are the lucky ones.

To sum up the day and as my wise dad often says, "It just doesn't get any better than this."
