Happy Father's Day!
I love being a Dad. There's nothing quite like seeing the joy in your kids' faces after a long day at work, or hearing them squeal like little piglets. I am quite good at the Tickle Game.... Being a parent is a huge responsibility, and I'm learning a lot about patience. My wife spends all day with them, so I can only thank her for that sacrifice - the sacrifice of her sanity. Please, no sharp instruments!
Also, Dad = Jungle Gym. They climb and do acrobatics off of my limbs. Sometimes I get them to walk on my back, which is nice until they decide to jump when then get to my head. I remember doing some of those things with my Dad, too.
Dads mow the lawn. That is, until they have a teenage son. I have invested in two of them, and they better not let me down! I'm all about child labor. I'm about ready to get myself a riding mower until then, though. This heat is killing me...
I am grateful for my Dad and realize now how hard it must have been. We kids sure were nuts...
Here are some random pix off of my camera.
