Daddy's Boy!

So this last weekend Rick was out of town attending a conference for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation that he serves on. Stone was so excited because Rick was in Washington DC and was going to get to see the White House, Lincoln Memorial, and some other sites. All weekend Stone would ask if we had received any texts from "daddy" and was so excited whenever Rick would call or text us.

On Saturday evening we went to pick Rick up at the airport. Stone was so excited he could hardly stand it. As soon as Stone saw Rick, he jumped out of the car and ran to him. After a long hug, Stone pulled away and was trying to discreetly wipe his eyes. Rick said "buddy are you crying"...and then the flood gates opened and the tears started flowing. He said "daddy I just missed you so much." It was the sweetest thing I have EVER seen!

Rick is an amazing father and an incredible husband. Stone not only looks just like his dad, but he shares the same sense of humor and big heart. There isn't a day that goes by that I am not grateful for this amazing little family of mine!
