Remember that time you picked me up from school on a whim and told me we were going to Hawaii? We ate m&ms for breakfast and chased a volcano, and then you you had me home for school Monday morning.
Remember when we went to that Indian fort? Was that the place were I got my fringe leather vest? I can’t wait have kids and let them wear that cool get-up.
Remember going to the Texas State Fair, eating funnel cakes and watching the Vita Mix demonstrations? Thanks for giving me your VitaMix, by the way. You know how much I use that sucker.
Remember going to PK Lake for the weekend and doing all kinds of fun things – skiing, relaxing at Hell’s Gate, pool at Big Dogs, exploring in Graham.
Remember when you wrote me that letter on hotel stationary about how proud you were of me and how much you loved me? I still have it.
Remember when I watched you graduate with your MBA? I was so proud.
Remember when you dropped me off at college and I cried? I bet you and Mom didn’t see that coming.
Remember when I called and told you I wanted to join the Peace Corps? You told me “go for it,” and I did.
Remember when we scuba dived together in Thailand? How beautiful was that!
Remember when I moved to Florida, and we became roommates? Best roomie ever.
Remember when you walked me down the aisle, and we danced to “The Way You Look Tonight?”
Happy Father’s Day, Dad! You are an amazing person who I look up to very much. You have showed me how to work hard, have a sense of adventure, and to be an individual. Thanks for putting up with me throughout the years and showing me unconditional love.
