belated father’s day post

Because of our vacation I was unable to put up a post in time for Father’s Day.  So here it is now!  I’m extremely lucky to have the Dad that I do.  He has done so much for our family and probably doesn’t get thanked often enough.

I have vivid memories of life with Dad growing up.  I remember that he taught me to braid on one of my barbies, don’t know if he remembers that, but I do!  I remember that he always told me I looked “strong”, usually after a swim practice that I didn’t want to go to.

I remember coloring at his old work office when I was little and thinking I was pretty cool to be in my Dad’s office.  I remember him fixing our bikes.  I remember drawing out a template for my Halloween jack-o-lantern every year that he would then transfer to a pumpkin.

I remember him trying to teach me long division when I was extremely upset because I just didn’t get it.  I remember camping and hiking with him (and Ryan, my little bro) in Santa Fe, one of my favorite memories.  And of course, I remember him throwing us up in the air at the pool over and over and over again.

Thanks for all the memories Dad.  We are all so lucky to have you.  Love you!
