Happy Father's Day and Happy Birthday Brock

My children are blessed to not only have a great dad to learn from and look up to, they also have a wonderful grandfather and great-grandfather as well! The Eubanks men are known to be hardworking, God-fearing, put others before themselves type of men. I can confirm that Brock is a very hands-on father, and from stories that I've heard about Pawpaw Bob and Pawpaw Ty...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I am so thankful that my sons have a legacy of loving, invested fathers to model their lives after!

After Cowboy Church we met with the Eubanks at Memaw and Pawpaw Ty's house for lunch. My father-in-law, in his true character, thought it would be a special gift to plant new tomato plants for Pawpaw Ty in his garden. The early "June Monsoon" (as he called it) flooded Pawpaw's garden, killing his beloved and always successful tomatoes. Five tomato for each great-grandchild present that day. The kids had a great time planting and getting dirty...and I think Pawpaw was very pleased with his thoughtful gift!I snapped a few (okay, more like several) pictures to capture the day!

Brock and his sons...the boys would NOT cooperate (which kind of stresses Brock out a bit), but it was like a hundred degrees outside and naptime!

***Cash gave his daddy one of the greatest birthday and father's day gifts ever...As the adults were gathered in the kitchen chatting, Josie walked in carrying Cash...he looked at Brock, gave a big smile and said "Dada"...we were all so excited! Then he reached for Brock and said it again!! It was so special!

I know this isn't a very good picture and it is hard to see, but that is Pawpaw Ty driving his big blue tractor. We ended our little get-together so that Bob and Stetson and Tyson could get back to work raking and baleing hay. I just love that at eighty-six years old, Pawpaw Ty still loves to work hard and help his family!

Once we got home, Brock took Tytus and Beau to see Toy Story 3 and then to get ice cream. They had so much fun giving him all of his gifts and spending the day with family.
Brock, you mean so much to us. I hope that you felt loved on your double special day!!
