Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there; especially to my dad, Grant!
I wouldn’t be where i was today without your support, advice, tough love, and brain (minus the physics part of yours). Besides that i would be missing some of my greatest memories, i.e. rolling into the trashcan (asleep) and waking up to you holding me a plate of eggs and bacon–dying my hair for the first time (always knew you’d do a good job)–discovering that breakfast, lunch, and dinner, really do taste better over a fire with extra bacon–chopping down our own xmas tree–sledding-dancing–making BISCUITS and kneading them…just a little!! #. 1. Dad. 4. us. ever.
You told me to ‘stand there and look pretty’, when i was only 10 years old; How inspiring.
Story time: This Fathers Day my family ventured to ‘Strawberry Reservoir’ to go ‘crawDAD fishing’, for those of you who don’t know what that is think of shrimps with claws, caught with a chicken wing and a net-it. is. so. fun. On the way there they stopped in Heber at a gas station. Being the exerciser of the family my mother probably motivated everyone to get out of the car and stretch their legs… minus our dog, Tyko. This was the result.
I wish the time stamp was on there… 7:30 a.m. on Fathers Day. Great start to the day. Don’t worry, the dog was okay; he used his intelligence to press the ‘unlock’ button after the cops were called.
Thanks to all the Fathers out there that have dedicated their lives to their kids, they appreciate it more than they can ever say.
Also, extra thanks to Joe Braun–for without you i wouldn’t have a wonderful boyfriend and we would for sure have rats in our house! Oh, and i would still know nothing about baseball. 🙂 Thank you for everything you do; i am so so lucky to know you.
making biscuits for breakfast tomorrow, wish you were here paps…
