The Evidence

There are good dads all around me.


I love to watch them being good dads in simple, candid moments.  When they bend down to tie their toddler's shoe, or to push a gleeful child on a swing.  When they pat their teenagers' backs and cheer at little league baseball games.  I see good dads cleaning sticky faces, cradling babies, and jumping on trampolines with their summer-loving children.  These small and sincere actions are the undoubted "evidence" of a good dad.


There are good dads all around me.

Not only do I spot them in grocery stores and on playgrounds, on my street and in my community, but in my Instagram feed as well.  Lately I've noticed just how many wonderful pictures there are of good dads being good dads.  I wanted to share some favorites with you...

and remind you that there are good dads all around you too.

While my sis-in-law was out of town, my brother watched YouTube tutorials on how to braid their daughter's hair.  This is what he created!  Photo courtesy of Camille at Six Sisters' Stuff.

  2. That dad sitting with his little girl watching the cows was so sweet with her earlier but I didn't get a pic. It was her nap time, he lay on the grass next to her on a beautiful child-size quilt as she napped for a bit. They were in a shaded area on the side of all the commotion at the dairy farm. I heart good dad's. Thanks for featuring my photo :)
