  I must say that love the little peace sign that Lola threw in our picture above. She has no idea just how cool she is, and I love her for it! Lola has been so excited for our date. The only bad thing was that her date fell on the week that Alicia went in for a major surgery and was in...

Lola jean is the cutest little girl!  She gets so excited for our dates, which makes me feel good as a father who is trying to create a good relationship and meaningful memories with my kids. Last night, she woke up and came into my room and 1:00 AM asking if it was time for her date....

I played corn hole this morning with my sweet little Lola Jean! I woke Lola early and told her to get herself ready for our date. I thought it was super cute to see her back asleep when I came back into her room a few minutes later. I teased her by saying, “Lola, did you fall back...

Little Lola’s date fell on a Friday during Spring Break while we were staying at a hotel as a family; so, we ended up sneaking out on an evening the following week. The plan was for her and I to decorate my new and freshly painted beehive boxes. We were going to dip her hands in paint...

Lola Jean is the cutest little thing! I love how excited she gets for our dates. She starts planning them weeks in advance, changing the plans each time she talks about them. In the end we decided to plant some flowers and, of course, to go and buy a donut, which is her definition of a...

$100 – Lola

I just enjoyed another incredible FatherMoment with my baby girl, Lola Jean.  Something that I say a lot is, “Everyone needs a Lola Jean”.  She brightens my day.  Last night when I was putting her to bed I said, “Good night sweet pea.”  She paused for a moment and...

Every dad needs a little Lola Jean!  I love my girls and they are especially cute and fun when they are miniature! Lola and I started our date by watching a video about the time when Christ healed a man on the Sabbath.  I didn’t think Lola would comprehend the lesson in the video, but...

Lola Jean is the cutest little girl!  Grandpa Gardner just fixed his hot tub in preparation for the cold weather that is on its way and Lola and I decided that we would take advantage of this hookup. Before sneaking out into the dark morning, Lola wanted a little chocolate milk bottle to...

Lola is one fun little girl!  I am so glad that she is now apart of my FatherMoment Dates.  You can tell that she is still not used to being woken up early!  It takes her a while to wake up and I think she is the cutest little things when she is lite a little lion cub waking up from a...

Lola is now officially enrolled in the FatherMoment dates!  Today was Lola’s 3rd birthday and she has been so excited for her first date. I snuck into her room early and snapped some pictures of her trying to wake up at the early hour.  It was bad timing for her that her first date...
