Happy Father's Day Sunday

"Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad." -- Anne Geddes


The picture above is my father, Will, and Will's dad (AKA Tom)
How's that for Father's Day picture.
We were trying to get the boat out.

Above: We tried to go fishing again but it just didn't work out. We hit bad weather but this time we got the boat all the way in the water. We went ahead and took the boat down the river a ways but it was just too windy and cold. So we headed back. Maybe next time we can get a worm wet. Sorry Grandma and Grandpa. My dad and Cherie came from Boise so we could celebrate Father's Day together. Even though we didn't get to fish we still had a great day.

Above: We went to an old fashioned wiener roast on Saturday night. We even had s'mores. It was a lot of fun. Will is sitting visiting with Coach. I don't think they know anyone else is around.

On Wednesday we did get the boat out for a few hours in the evening. This is what I caught. What a pretty fish, maybe I should have led off this blog with this picture. That's one nice looking fish, at least two feet or so, right? We went out with Aaron and Angel, Joe and Carrie Chizum and Will and I. Tom didn't get to go because he was still recuperating from hernia surgery. He is doing so much better but he has to be careful for a while yet.

Will started doing dialysis four times a week and maybe that's going to help. He is feeling pretty good today. He loves going out on the boat. Maybe this week we can go out more. Maybe I will let him catch the biggest one. I have a couple more pictures I want to put on here. Maybe tomorrow I can do that.

I thank God for fathers everywhere. They are a very special breed of people. I was lucky, I had one great father and two very special step-fathers. My step dads are gone now but I feel very blessed that I still have my dad. Another blessing I want to thank God for is Him allowing me to pick Tom to be the father of my two children. I never, ever could have gotten a better dad for them.
So a great big THANK YOU to our heavenly Father for all his blessings and I hope all of you had a great Father's Day.
God Bless and tell someone you love them. It makes the world a better place.
