Learning how to lose

June 29, 2010

It has been 11 years now without a father to celebrate Father’s Day. But, fortunately for this lucky girl, John Bear’s father is just as amazing as his son. There is nothing quite like a good father. And if my Dad were here, he would love Papa Bear. Been a while since I’ve posted pictures. […]

Fathers Day

June 22, 2010
