For My Son on Father’s Day

Last year my Father’s Day post was honoring my father and this year I am honoring my son who is a wonderful father (along with Erika their wonderful mom)  to the four children pictured-  Anna, Michael, Jack (John) and Maura.

Murphy is an important part of clan so while I watched the kids tonight and we were playing in the back yard I tried to get a shot of each of them for the Father’s Day post, the 1000th post!

Happy Father’s Day Mark!.  love, Mom
