Father's Day

Father's Day is really no big deal to me, even though this is my 10th year as a dad. It's one of those "holidays" that I could just do without. I don't quite know why I'm so ambivalent about this day, but I am. Being a dad is one of the greatest gifts and responsibilities a man can have. I'm thankful to be a father and have two wonderful kids, of whom I would not trade a day to be without.

I'm also thankful for my dad, even though I don't always show it.

My parents took us to the Rainforest Cafe yesterday for Father's Day. My kids got me some movie passes, M gave me a booklet that he made in school this year - one page of printing samples for each month of the school year and V made me a hand drawn card that she made in school too. I think those handmade gifts are better than anything you could buy at a store, because they are made with love.

I agree.
A gift from the heart is way better than anything from the store.

Happy Father's Day.

Blessings.

Hope you enjoyed your day. Our kids weren't around for the weekend, so we had some time for ourselves. Of course, they're bigger, so it's different now. They called in tho, and wished Andy a happy day. Sweet :)

*sigh*

I sent my Dad a organic tropical fruit basket only to find out after they delivered it on Friday that he was on a cruise to Alaska and won't be back til the 26th, the day after his birthday.

Maybe the fruit will be ripe enough to make smoothies.

Heh green, I was a late birthday present for my Dad. I just emailed the fruit company that sent the basket and they'll resend it for me on the 27th YAY! There are some good people left on this earth!

Happy Birthday to our Dad's!
