We interrupt Mom's blog today to say Happy Father's Day to our Dad.

My 3 Sons1

Here are some of the things that make him a great Dad (in no particular order):

* He takes us to fun places like Legoland and the rock wall.

* He has an "endearing" sense of humor.

* He "builds our character" by making us dig holes. Whether he has something to put in them or NOT.

* He takes us on bike rides.

* He only takes "one more turn" in Civilization III (and one more turn and one more turn and one more turn....)

* He listens as we talk ad nauseum about the different Lego sets we think we want to buy.

* [Youngest Dude] I like when Dad's there when I HAVE to say something.

* Dad works hard to take care of us.

* He pays us allowance ... usually on time.

* He's a really safe driver, except sometimes when he thinks the Mini is a roller coaster ride.

* He's a great teacher. And someday we hope to use in real life the logic he's taught us from The Fallacy Detective.

* [Dog Dude] He gives me 2 minutes of attention when he gets home at night.

* He likes to play family games (like Life) with us. Oh wait, never mind. That's someone else's dad.

* He loves us well.

Thank you for being a great Dad to us.

Love, your Dudes

ps. as the aroma fills the kitchen, we're reminded that you make the BEST chocolate chip pancakes (and your bacon is good, too!)

Hi Susan! Did your boys really write that because it is just precious. It made me laugh quite a bit. The picture is as usual gorgeous! Can I link you up??

SKELLER said...

Yup, Debbie - the list is the boys' creation (tho, I'll admit to needing to prod with some "ideas" :-} ).
And yes, link away...
