Father’s Day around the Corner

Father’s Day will soon be here.  Dads have such a special relationship and spot in their daughter’s lives.  Gary was away last weekend Drag racing with his brother Randy so Camryn and I had a girl’s weekend.  Our girl’s weekend entailed her taking a babysitting course and me cleaning out drawers!  We did go to the theatre on Saturday night with one of her friends and watched Footloose and some other chick flicks.  She sure missed her Dad though and was so happy that he made it home late but could still tuck her in and kiss her good night.  Bed time has always been their special time- I have a more  flexible schedule so do the days and school, and Gary does bed time.  Their bedtime routine used to be a story but has now been replaced by one or 2 of her stuffies doing a re-cap of the day (complete with Dad’s voices).  They have a hoot.  What was your special time with your Dad?  My Dad is 90 and he loves me picking him up to go for a ride and a beer out in the country.  Not sure what we will do on Father’s Day, it usually depends on the weather.  If it is nice we will pack up the Sherpa and the fishing gear and put the boat and a line in.  They say that a Dad is a girl’s first love-how true!  Happy Dad’s Day to all the awesome Dads out there!
