A Happy Father's Day

Today was Father's Day.  It was a beautiful June day.  It was especially nice because my sister and her husband were here to be with our dad.  We are so lucky to still have him.  He was so happy to have both of his daughters together.

I think my husband had a good day also.  He got a new iphone for Father's Day.  He was one of those guys who carried a Tracfone in a little case on his belt.  He couldn't make the big plunge and only got the free iphone 4, but it is a big improvement over what he had.  The guy at the phone store tried to hide his grin when we walked in, and when we left he said that he hoped Mike would enjoy leaving the dark ages.  

Tracfone ready to be recycled.

The second thing that made his day was going out for Mexican food with our youngest daughter, her husband and one of our grandsons.  I never in a million years thought he would ever eat Mexican food, but he really likes it.  Our daughters always used to tease him by saying that ketchup was too spicy for him.  Then he got his gift.  Every year he gets the same thing.  He gets a new Bathroom Reader.  I hope they keep printing them because he really likes them and we all know where he reads them too.  With all that Mexican Food he may start reading them sooner than later.

Books he has already read.
He got these two new ones this year.
 Happy Father's Day
