I’m a day late, but that doesn’t make my kids any less adorable, okay? This year, we all dressed up for Halloween as storybook characters. Decker as Max, Rilyn as Peppa, Lakyn as Fern, Afton as Amelia Bedelia, and I as The Cat in the Hat! 😍🎃

I love that our kids’ elementary school provides so many opportunities for the parents to get involved. Tonight was Pumpkin Carving Night for the second graders and their dads. Lakyn did a great job drawing the face, helping me scoop out the guts, as well as with the carving! The kiddos closed the evening by singing a number of Halloween songs to the tune of Christmas songs, which was strange and wonderful all at the same time. 🎃🎄

And on his first birthday, we did his favorite thing in the whole world. You'll want to turn the volume up for this. Just trust me.

It's hard to believe, but this little guy celebrated his first birthday today! He has brought so much joy to our family this past year, and it's been a blessing to watch his relationship with each of his big sisters grow in different ways. Decker James, we love you so much! Happy birthday, buddy.

Our little Rilyn turned five today! She may still be tiny, but will challenge anyone for the title of biggest heart. She's always wanting to help others and is caring in ways you wouldn't expect from a kid her age. She showed off that side this afternoon by helping her friends score loads of candy from her rainbow piñata. 😜 I couldn't be more proud of the girl she's become and is growing up to be. I love you, Rilyn Ann! ❤️

I'm not a fan of pictures of me these days, but I do love pictures of my kiddos. So thankful for the privilege of being their dad!

Dad, thank you for always putting family first and for giving without ever expecting anything in return. And thanks for being willing to rock a polka dot diaper bag. Happy Father's Day! Love you lots!

Today marks nine years that I've been married to this incredible woman. It doesn't feel like nine years yet, but maybe that's because she doesn't seem to age. (Seriously. 😍) Or maybe it's because our three kids are constantly keeping us on our toes. Regardless, I love the life we've made together. But most of all, I love you, @afton_r! Happy anniversary! ❤️😘

Christ is risen! Happy Easter to all of those celebrating.

And a happy birthday to my gorgeous wife! 32 looks darn good on you, and I'm so thankful we've been able to spend more than a third of our lives together. Love you, @afton_r! 😘

Very grateful to be able to go on field trips with my kiddos. Today we walked to Olathe South to see and learn about a bunch of animals they have there. Lakyn's favorites? The snakes and the tarantula. #prouddad #sorrymomma
