Happy Father’s Day!

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. – Bill Cosby

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, “You’re tearing up the grass.'” “We’re not raising grass,” Dad would reply. “We’re raising boys.” – Harmon Killebrew

Happy is the father whose child finds his attempts to amuse it, amusing.
-Robert Lynd

There is no place higher than on Daddy’s shoulders. -Unknown

Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy! -Anonymous

Wishing all the wonderful dads a very Happy Father’s Day!!


  1. Dear Valerie,

    I’ll have to add “Check your kids’ clothing” to the list because Emily’s pants are too short and her top is on backwards in the first photo. 😉

    Thanks for the video and the tasty BBQ Sauce!


  2. So sweet! LOL about soap on a rope. We used to get that for my Dad, but he liked it. Too funny!

  3. Cute video Emily!! I think giving your Dad everything is a very mature idea…especially because gift giving to adults can be very tricky. I hope you all had a fabulous day. Ours Fathers Day is on the first Sunday in September. I think a video would be a cool idea that we will HAVE to steal 🙂 Thanks!

  4. Happy Father’s Day, Mark!
