Thank You Dad

Thank You Dad

Thank you for being a stay at home dad when we were little.

Thank you for teaching me how great it is for little kids to have a home to play in rather than a school.

Thank you taking me and Makenzie to the beach when you got home from work in the summer.

Thank you for tracking down those boys that were kicking me every day in Elem. school and giving them a piece of your mind (I can imagine you wanted to give them more than just a piece of your mind though!)

Thank you for teaching me how to fish, and not to be afraid of the slimy wiggly fish and worms.

Thank you for making us a home cooked meal every single night, I didn't realize how lucky I was at the time.

Thank you for offering to teach me how to cook before I left for college - even if I refused to learn then.

Thank you for answering my cooking calls when I finally needed to start cooking, even when they were questions you answered many times before, and without making me feel like an idiot for not knowing the answer!

Thank you for having your own band and holding rehearsals in our basement - live concerts in my own house!

Thank you for teaching me the importance of family and history, and for putting together our family tree.

Thank you for being an active parent in raising us.

Thank you for being a trusted rock that I could always count on!

I love you!!  Happy Father's Day!

Abby it's always great as a father to know that your kids remember things that you've contibuted to their lives. They may seem insignificant at the time but as you've just said they have made an impact in your life that makes me proud to be your dad.Your kids will have similar memories and life goes on. I love Abby.
