Father's Day & Football
Back at my brothers I got hang out with the family for a few hours before heading home. I'm so thankful to be so close (within a 2 hour drive) to my family. It's great seeing my niece and nephew grow into awesome kids each with a very different personality.
My Dad and I have grown closer as we've gotten older, he wasn't really around when I was younger as he was always working taking care of his family. When he got cancer the first time back when I was in collage we grew closer and I've made it a habit to visit him at least two to three times a month. His health has gone up and down over the years but he's a survivor. He is the reason why I am a geek in the first place.. he loved Star Wars and took me to many, many viewings back in 77. He also is responsible for me collecting toys as he bought me my first Star Wars action figures. Though he may not have been around for me when I was younger I always knew he was there making sure that my brother and I had everything that we needed. He's a great dad but an amazing grandfather and loves his grand kids to death and I truly believe they are why he is still around. Happy Father's Day Dad.. Love you.
