Happy Father's Day
Before the til and after
For TEN HOURS yesterday this manly man tilled our little piece of Earth. The weather has been amazing, not too hot, but it sure was dusty with all that dirt. Luke and I collected up the rocks and weird objects he dug up. The previous owners were whack.
Here's the start. Great Job Jason. What a project to tackle! Especially with no budget...the ultimate DYI!
On the Father's day front, Jason always gets high marks. When we were first married, we lived in a student ward at BYU and saw lots of different kinds of dads. He decided then not to be a 'goober dad' like some we witnessed there and he has not. Jason has always been my equal in parenting....which says much to how he was raised from his parents. Jason loves and respects his dad and has the best memories of water skiing, basketball and has always been able to confide in him. My kids love when grandpa plays sleeping monster!
As for my dad, about half of you know him. He is funny. He would agree. He can talk to anyone. Seriously, growing up, I think he talked to everyone in the check out line or wherever we were at. He is nice to everyone. He is very generous and thoughtful. He is a very hard worker. I inherited the machine gun laugh from him. We are practically twins (wink wink) except for the large discrepancy in cleanliness (him, ultra tidy...me, not so much). I'm hoping that I mellow out like he has as he has gotten older, I'm sure Jason would appreciate a bit less spice. One thing I love about my dad is how much he loves my kids.
Here's to hard working dads in our lives. Hope you can eat some steak!
Jason's definition of a goober dad: One who doesn't know how to feed, dress or bathe the kids....just lets the mom do everything. Total goober (my addition.)
More on Jason:
He likes to wear shoes and socks. Always,
He likes pineapple but doesn't like watermelon. So there.
