happy father's day!

a great big happy father's day to all of the dads out there, especially mine!  

i feel so lucky that i have a great one {actually i feel so lucky that i have all great parents}.  my dad has so many fantastic stories, like the time he met johnny cash and had a song dedicated to him back when they were young {my dad was a helicopter pilot in the army at the time}. or the time he hot-wired a crane in the middle of the night, picked up his high school principal's vw bug, and set it on the school gym's roof.  he returned the crane and headed to school the next morning as if nothing had happened.  when he arrived news cameras were there reporting the story.  the principal was outraged, but since the cameras were there, he chalked it up to boys being boys and let it go.  my dad got away with a lot of crazy things when he was growing up.  thanks for everything dad!!

check out dads are the original hipsters.  it's great!


  1. Wow, your dad sounds like quite the character!! It sounds like my dad and your dad would get on swimmingly (as long as your dad likes red wine, because mine loves it!).

    And loving the tumblr!

    And thanks so so much for your really sweet comments on my blog. They really mean a lot to me. I know children aren't for everyone (for a long time I didn't even think they were for me) so to think there is so much love and happiness out there for our little one makes me smile! If that makes sense?!

  2. Your dad did that? CRAZY. But pretty cool!

    I love Dads are the original hipsters. It's hilarious!
