Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to me. Today I received the great hand-made cards from the boys. Evidently, they made them in school before school let out for the summer. They’re pretty cool and the boys have printed words on the tie that describe me. There are funny words like, “hairy” and “goofy,” 🙂 and serious words like, “caring” and “honest,” and, interestingly enough, they both seem to agree that I’m “nice” and “amazing”. Pretty cool. It’s great being a Dad!

I also got a Amazon Echo (a.k.a. An NSA Listening Device). It’s a neat little gadget and can do all kinds of things, like control your smart tech devices (television, thermostat, phone), research questions on the Internet, make lists, tell you the news, read audiobooks, and play music from several services, like Pandora, iHeart Radio, and Sirius/XM. I also now have access to Amazon’s entire music library, so can play entire albums.

The boys enjoy asking “Alexa” to play songs…not so much to listen to the songs, I’ve discovered, but just to see if Alexa can play it.

It’s a great day to be a dad! Like all Father’s Days in our house, dad gets up with the kids and makes coffee and fixes milk for the kids and watches the kids and drinks coffee while mom sleeps in. 😉

What makes this day different is the little surprise the boys had for me…

So, what did we do on this Father’s Day? We went to the Jacksonville Zoo. I haven’t been here since I was a kid, and it hasn’t changed all that much…

So here we are, and here we go…

There’s lots of stuff to see, but we spent an inordinate amount of time looking at the turtles and fish…

Of course, the highlight of the trip isn’t the animals; it’s the TRAIN!

So, we bought our tickets and climbed aboard!

It was a nice afternoon. We saw a lot of animals, rode the train, enjoyed some ice cream, and had a great time together. Now, I guess we’ll take a nap…

Here’s a little something for every dad that, in the wake of a screaming child, ever looked at his wife and thought, “I didn’t ask for this…”

All Daddy Wanted was a Blowjob

Yes, that is printed on a tee shirt….

and yes, the twins are wearing them…
