    Hehe, this is a total Dad moment. I freak out when my husband does stuff like this with the kids, but they *love* it.

    Great picture–what I wouldn’t give to relive those moments, swung high through the air by my own papa. Thanks for capturing that magical sensation!

    Hah! Ah yes, total dad moment. Very familiar in our parts too. Gotta love ’em (in a close your eyes and hope for the best kinda way).

    I’ve come to realize since becoming a parent that part of a dad’s job is doing things that make mom damn near have heart attack.

      So true! Col started chopping wood—with Dan standing behind him steadying the axe—at 3! And now at 6, he chops wood independently (while I close my eyes, breathe deeply and pray, nearby).

    I can still do that with Eli but he’s starting to get really heavy.

    I think it’s snowing in here!

    I saw this picture and thought, “I want to be in that family!” I think I just want that feeling of being fully airborne. How cool.
