Father's Day with four generations

Father's Day is a day to honor our special men in our lives. Whether that be your husband, dad, grandpa, great grandpa, uncle, or special figure. This Father's Day was extra special in our home this year. My son was able to celebrate with his dad, grandpa and great grandpa. Having four generations with the last name is definitely a special treat for all of our family.
4 generations celebrating together
Our day was filled with little man giggles and chatterbox talking. Let me tell you that giggle is contagious! Once he starts everyone laughs at how sweet and precious he is, then he gets going louder and then we just can't stop!  But what really gets me, is that big ole smile when he looks at his great grandpa and they lock eyes! It truly is a special gift that we all get to witness.
We are lucky that my husband and I live about 4 houses down from his grandpa so our little man gets to spend time with his 'big buddy' very conveniently. My husband always called his grandpa 'buddy' growing up. He grew up riding with his buddy out to the farm while his dad was working and after awhile his grandpa told him he liked being his 'farming buddy'. Well I guess my husband liked it and kept calling his grandpa 'buddy'. It stuck and now we refer to great grandpa as 'big buddy' to our little man.
It's very unique that four generations live so close these days. Most families are spread apart and living all over. Take my side of the family for example. My family farms 300 miles away. Our Father's Day consisted of a FaceTime chat with my dad in the morning followed by a FaceTime chat with my grandparents in the afternoon. Having all these generations around for our little man to see really is fun. Twenty years ago, I couldn't see my grandparents if they weren't in the same town. Oh modern technology, you make these so easy. Just how did we ever survive before? It sure was great to be able to celebrate our special men in our lives.

Happy Fathers Day to all those special men in our lives, near and far!

Until Next Time,
