Happy Father's Day: An Interview

First up, Happy Father's Day to those of you fathers out there! 
Bryan and I have been blessed with the fathers and grandfathers we have, and we are so thankful to have those men in our lives.
My children and I have been blessed beyond measure by my husband. When I married him (almost ten years ago), I thought he would be a good father. I truly had no idea how "good" he would be. He is so involved in the lives of my children, in the loving, in the raising, the training, the teaching, the cleaning, the bedtimes and bath times, and all the in-between times. He's the fun machine in our outings and adventures, and he's full of smiles and hugs and kisses. Truly, as a mother, one of the best feelings of security comes in knowing that my children are loved, and safe, and taken care of by their father.
This past Mother's Day, I did an interview with the kids about me. This time, I have asked them *mostly* the same questions about Bryan. (There are a few new questions in there, I think you'll be able to spot them.) You'll notice that Lilly has much improved her interview skills in the past month as well.
I'm throwing in some old photos from the past few years, just for fun.
This was taken in total paparazzi style. Bryan was outside sitting by the pond with a one week old Baby Bella, and I couldn't resist taking this picture from the window.
