WHAT A GREAT FATHER'S DAY

 

 

To grow up and be best friends with you're father is a blessing; to grow up and be best friends with your grown sons is the only thing that comes close to that feeling.

After a long day at the office on Friday, I drove up to Rancho Cordova to visit with my dad for an early father's day.  Michael was there along with Dawn and Dave, Michelle and Mom.

After a good night's sleep on Friday night, Michael and I left Sacramento early Saturday morning for a 9 hour drive to Boise Idaho to visit with son Steven and spend father's day with the boys.  It's 566 miles from Michael's to Boise and another 45 or so to Mt. Home.  We chose to stay in Boise since there is so much more to do there.  We arrived around 3, found a place to stay, then went to dinner.  Sunday we had Father's day breakfast and Steven drove us out to his special camping spot (through rain and hail), then back to Boise for a little NASCAR, golf and visiting at the local Buffalo Wings sports bar.  Then we headed back to the hotel, Steven had to leave back to Mt. Home for a haircut and Michael and I just rested up for the drive home on Monday morning...

It was fun, insightful, and heartwarming to spend the weekend with the boys. 

I'm very proud of my sons and love them very much.  Michael....thanks for sharing the ride out there....Steven....thanks for showing us around and I'll see you guys soon....Love..Dad..

So glad you had such a good time with our grandsons. We spent the last 4 days watching Keely play volley ball. Out of 85 teams they came out in 3rd place. Not bad !!!!
They played awesome losing only the last match. We are so proud of the girls. It was their best turnament ever.
