Yesterday was Memorial Day, a day in which we give thanks to those who served our country fighting dictators and tyrants in faraway lands. Soon though, we will be giving thanks to those who fight dictators and tyrants much closer to home. So close to home that they’re actually inside one, maybe even right as you’re reading this. I’m talking about dads and Father’s Day and the tyrants are their kids (sometimes).
So June 16, 2013 we will all join together and give praise to fathers for the very important work they do. Since becoming a father myself a couple years ago, I’ve developed a greater appreciation for both Father’s and Mother’s days. I’ll be honest and say that I can’t really remember any Father’s Days before children (B.C.) My dad always lived in another state so I’m pretty sure all Father’s Days were celebrated over the phone.
I know that on my first FD (Eliza wasn’t born yet but I’ll still count it), Amanda and I were at the Denver Zoo and I talked to my dad on my Droid X at the Red Wolf exhibit. Then last year I don’t have any recollection what we did. I checked out my archives to see what was going on and just found a pic of Eliza passed out in her high chair. Haha.
Well, Father’s Day this year will be pretty cool now that I’m a father of two super awesome kids. You know what else is awesome? The giveaway right after this paragraph.
