A Wonderful Father's Day

We had a great day today celebrating with Tom for Father's Day.  I had the bright idea that we should take a pedal boat out for a ride.  We surprised Tom for fear that he would refuse and he was close to doing so when we pulled into Okeeheelee Park.  I dragged the three of them, mitching and boaning, until we climbed into the four-seater and then thoroughly enjoyed ourselves while making meaningful family memories.  We laughed till our bellies ached and enjoyed the beautiful weather and cool breezes while on the water.  There was a little island that Rachel went out to explore.  Tom and Logan tried to drive away and leave her, but Mom prevailed.

We listened to music on Rachel's iphone and laughed again when Logan's hat when flying into the water and we pedaled like crazy to reach it before we couldn't.

We then went to The Diner for lunch and then home to open some presents.  It was a great day and Tom enjoyed it.  A day we will always remember and that's how it's supposed to be.

Happy Father's Day to my Dad in Heaven . . .

 This picture was taken before he was married, before he even thought of the children he would have or the amazing Father he would turn out to be, before he could have realized the everlasting impression he would leave inscribed within our hearts.  Rest in peace, my dear Father.  God Bless.
