We’re not that big on winter in our family. But some families are! We collected the best, happiest and wintriest gay dad family photos from this year. Photos from families having fun in the snow in Colorado, near Lake Tahoe, on the East Coast, all over Canada, and some gorgeous photos of gay dads skiing with their kids in Switzerland. All these families made it look like so much fun, maybe we’ll take our kids iceskating tomorrow. Maybe.

From this spot I took my proposal picture for when I asked Brett to marry me. Four years later we stand in this very spot with our children that were only a dream four years ago. How life has a beautiful way of unfolding into what you felt you could only dream of happening #happyfamily #feelingcomplete
