Old School

I have a husband that grew up in Southern California. 


He was always on his bike and at the skate park. 

One of the things I adore about him is that he is so young at heart. 

 He still loves to go to the skatepark and he now takes our children. 



I tagged along last weekend and my husband is never the only dad there riding. 


What I love the most is this is something special that he does with the children. 


A skatepark morning always starts with donuts and orange juice from the gas station.  The kids love this because I would never buy that. 

It is their tradition with dad.

    They all look like they are having fun, what great memories the kids will have, those dad times are so special. And they will do that with there children & remember good old dad, and the cycle of life continues! Wish we could have a pause button some days with our kids Jeanne. Enjoy the donuts kids Shhhhhh I won’t tell mum hee!!! My husband does the same only they get chocolate shake’s too ouh those calories πŸ™‚

    What a cool Dad and Hubby. It’s always so nice to see Dads that are involved with their kids in such a positive and fun way. You have a beautiful family Miss Jeanne!

    Your husband has such a friendly smile~you can tell he’s a nice guy just by looking at him πŸ™‚
    How nice that he has this special thing to do with the kids. My husband bikes with the girls but it’s all ‘road cycling’….I think it’s scary either way….and he gets them donuts at Casey’s too!!
    That little Benjamin is such a cutie…I bet he keeps you plenty busy.
    Have a great day today.

    I’m the lucky one! I have three great kids who love to do what I do. I also have the hottest wife at the skatepark! While there may be a few other Dads out there you rarely see the Moms. We loved that you came too Jeanne! I love you!!

    Aren’t dad-traditions great?! My husband wrestles with the kids on the bed, and the last one still on wins. I would never do this, so it’s extra special daddy-time!
    The pictures are adorable …urr…I guess your husband and sons would prefer “studly.” πŸ™‚
    Love the one of your little guy practicing his moves!!!
