Day 171 - Thanks Dads!

Day 171 - Thanks Dads!

Day 171 - This is a special post for all the dads out there in the world that take on the very difficult and heroic role of being a dad. There are a few in particular that I need to thank. One has done and still does a great job of being a great dad to me. The other has done an amazing job of being a terrific dad to our two little bear cubs. My favorite thing about both these men? They always can find humor in the moment. I dug up some old and new photos of these two fathers. Here are a few of my favorites.

A rare photo my dad and I.  First, notice his shirt says "HOT." Second, notice his expression. The story goes, he held me for this photo and my diaper leaked. 

Next up is a great photo of my dad with the outboard motor that he stuffed in the trunk of our 1977 Green Ford Granada on the way to Three Lakes Wisconsin. He loved that outboard motor. 

Thanks Dad for being a terrific father by making sure I wanted for a nothing and laugh about life along the way.


Now, as for the other dad I need to thank. All dads like to take afternoon naps and walk their kids to get donuts after breakfast right?

No way! You are a super, rad dad and our kids are lucky to have a funny, grumpy old bear as their protector.

Now, for today's project, look through old or new dad photos. Remember the good stuff the dads in our lives provide us. Then create a real, honest-to-goodness thank you for a dad in your life. It can be anyone that makes you feel cared for, loved or helps you laugh. Call them up, go over to their house or send them a message about what makes them special.

Well, I'm going to get to celebrating dad today and drag everyone out for a donut. Have a great father's day. "Cheers & Beers" to all you dads out there!
