My Dad is also pretty awesome

Just like Mother's Day, I am not home in Ohio to celebrate Father's Day.  So I'm dedicating this blog post to my dad.
Those are chopsticks.  Sometimes we use them for eating too.
 Once again, I'm not bashing on any of your dads.  They're all great men, but this post is about my dad, and how I think he's better. 

My dad is really cool.  I have never been embarrassed by him (or my mom) and I'm always proud to bring my friends home to meet them.  I've been told numerous times by my friends that my dad was "so cool," and I agree.  He's funny and I'm pretty sure he was voted class clown in high school.  I'm not 100% if that's correct, but it's the thought that counts, right?

 In a lot of ways I am like my dad.  I'm glad because luckily he isn't a boring person, which hopefully means I'm not too boring either. 

Because of my dad I rollerblade.  You can laugh all you want, but I'm pretty darn good.
This one is for you, Tiffany.

Because of my dad I love to ski.  He has sick form and you can pick out his carve from everyone else on the mountain.  It wasn't very hard to convince him to take me skiing on schooldays if we got a lot of snow.  It was awesome.

Because of my dad my whole family is obsessed with sunflower seeds.  It's not something we eat just on summer days, we eat sunflower seeds after dinner, during movies, car trips, and basically any other time of the day.
We give really good Christmas presents.
My dad has many responsibilities in work and church, but he handles stress extremely well.  He never complains, and he just does what he needs to.  Before he became his own boss, my dad worked for some less than excellent people.  He worked late hours, and I remember how excited I was when he would come home at night.  We would attack him and then demand his attention, because we knew he would give it.

I used to be a really big tomboy and my dad used to say that I was his replacement for a son.  That was basically the best thing he could ever say, and I freaking loved it.  I'd play catch with him and whenever he complimented my throwing arm I felt pretty darn good. 

Grocery shopping with him is the best.  We get what we need, but we also get sugar cereal and ice cream, etc.  My dad might be a financial planner, but my mom is the one who controls the money spending a lot of the time.  If we get some new toy it's because of my dad.  That's why we have a Playstation and Wii.  Remember this post about Just Dance? 

Once again, I have to go to work, so I can't continue on.  My dad is one cool guy and I love him THIS MUCH!!
Just another awesome picture for the road.
