Happy Father's Day

Lyss and I are very lucky to have a great dad.  He's our friend, coach, protector and most definitely the "go-to" guy.  We still joke about calling for our dad when we woke up from bad dreams - always in a weak, pathetic voice (Dadddd, dadddddy....)  Our dad is incredibly, incredibly patient and he's seen us through a lot. Thank goodness, because now that he has five kids, he really doesn't  have a choice but to be patient. He's like a rock, very steady and somebody you can always count on for whatever little curveball life throws you.  I always say my dad is the only person who would/could ever go on The Amazing Race with me.  (On a side note, I keep a running tab of shows I would be absolutely horrible on.  Other highlights include: The Bachelor.  I'd be the girl in the corner eyeing everyone suspiciously.  Road Rules.  I'm not athletic let's just leave it at that.  Oooh, also, Survivor.  I'll stop now.)
When I look at my Dad, I can still imagine exactly what he must have been like as a kid.  I'm convinced that when he was younger he was just like Richie Cunningham on Happy Days.  (he says no, but I know I'm right.)  

In honor of Father's Day, a little journey down memory lane.
