How you spent your Fathers Day ?

Well my fathers day was awsome... Pop and I went fishing, we have not dont that together in 20 years or more. This was a special Fathers Day.... you see my Father is dying of cancer. We just found out about 3 weeks ago. it has been a tough few weeks. We are still in the first stages of treatment and what we need to do. There are still alot of tests to be done and doctors to see, but this Fathers Day was awsome for me. I love my father very very much, and we needed to be together today. I took a few pics of him fishing, enjoying his time as he cast his line in the water. We didnt do to bad either, 3 Small mouth Bass, 1 large CatFish, numerous Sun Fish and Blue Gill. For all those out there who didnt have a chance to spend today with their Fathers, do it when you can , because you never know when there wont be any more Fathers days left. Love you Dad ...

Nice Gregg!

My Fathers day--

Called my father to wish him a Happy Fathers Day. (He's out of state)

MY FATHERS DAY--
Saturday morning my daughter Haley (2 Yrs old) comes up and gives me a card and says "Happy Fadder Day" I guess her and my wife have been working on this all week. I was VERY VERY pleased! I opened the card and there were 4 tickets to the Schaumbrg Flyers game for that night. AWESOME! All four of us went and Kolby (15 Mos old) had a blast! We brought a blanket and sat in the lawn section. It was a perfect night with the wife and kids. Then went out riding till almost 2am. Woke up Sunday to the same thing and this time Kolby gave me a card with 2 tickets to see my FAVORITE team- The White Sox- and a parking pass. We spent all afternoon together and then we all went out for dinner. We played basketball in the driveway till bedtime and i could not of asked for a BETTER day!

About the same here. My son woke me up and gave me 2 cards. One from him and one from my wife. He had written DAD on the card whic is big as he's pretty much only written MATT on anything. Then we took a little trip to Milwaukee and spent the day at the Brewers game. Had a blast. Matt got the opportunity to run the bases after the game. That was awsome. He was grinnin ear to ear. So was dad too.

Nice pics Gregg, now you have to make a baby so that you'll have someone to be proud of and enjoy your final years with.

Happy Father's Day to all, I spent mine baptizing (sp?) my baby girl. It was very nice, I love to see her 2-tooth grin.

Sweet Matt! God bless you, your dad, and your family.

I hung out with my dad and my sisters yesterday. Got my dad a big case of beer as always. I even let him drink some. My dad wasn't around while I was growing up, so we're reinventing our relationship based on our common interests: Snob beer and motorcycles. It's not uncommon for me to drop off the Harley at his house for a few weeks...Makes 'em happy.

First of all Gregg, glad to hear you had a good day with your father and sorry to hear about cancer. Not sure what kind he has but it is definitely something that wears on everyone around the person who cares for them. Best of luck and hang in there.

As for mine, well I got a really fantastic fathers day gift a brand new toolbox which I've been wanting for a while. So we spent part of the day the three of us in the garage re-arranging and stuff. Then we went for a bike ride, Ethan just started riding without training wheels and he is doing great. So we rode the park, he played for a while then when we came back he was practicing starting on his own without a push. Sure enough he got that down to a science now and knows how to brake too.

Seeing him doing something that he absolutely loves, and watching him smile after he gets something new down, is just the best feeling. For the longest time he wasn't really interested in too much, and scared of a lot. So seeing him take a dump on his bicycle, get up and go right back at it because HE wants to, is just the best.

Of course he got his foot caught one time, and when he pulled his foot out, his shoe came off, we had a good laugh about that one.

Nice pics Gregg.

My day started by been waken up by my wife screaming her lungs out. I jumped and find her and my destroyer, 2.5 year old boy, in my closet. You see my closet has a window over looking our little street. And my son spends his mornings there looking out side . A day before I dropped a hanger on the floor and did not bothered to pick it up. This rascal put it in his mouth and this hanger had to have a sharp end got stuck just under his tongue. Well, all in all everything turned out to be an OK. Until just 20 minutes later. When he decided to skip a step coming down from second floor. Luckily he only slid one step and only got shaken up. From that moment on I said we have to keep an eagle eye on him today to make sure that the day will finish with out any more blood.

And it sure did. the best part of the day was when he was saying "Happy Fathers Day".

Happy Father's Day to everyone

I got the ususal gifts (yard tools, clothes, etc.), but I got one special gift from my wife this year. She told me she is pregnant with our second child. I was really happy to hear that, since she was depressed after two miscarriages. We are blessed again!! Just when I'm starting to get some sleep, it starts all over again

What were you thinking??? You can't catch me!

Gregg sorry to hear about your father having cancer. My father died a few years ago with cancer and it was not pretty. I tried to spend as much time with him while he was still strong but the cancer was too spread out. Hopefully the doctors caught in time where they can stop it.

As for fathers day my wife and kids ordered me a Shoei helmet and a icon leather riding jacket. I've been saving up for a helmet and when they suprised me with a picture of the helmet and jacket I was excited. They ordered it on line so it did not arrive before father day so it had to be the picture. I can't wait for it to arrive and try them on. Later that morning we got ready and headed out to the cementary to greet my father a happy fathers day and then we headed out to the city to my mother and father in law. We BBQ and drank till late that night. It was a great fathers day for me.

Called home to my Dad and StepDad. Sent a card before hand. Since leaving for college, and especially after college I've really got to know both of them. Best time I had on the last trip involved me, stepdad and my uncle getting drunk as skunks in a hick bar in a small bar south of Seattle.

Spent the morning hangin' at the cemetery with my Dad. It's the first Father's Day that he's not been around for a phone call.

Sent my stepdad a Bass Pro gift certificate so he can continue building "our" stash of hunting "toys". I might even make it back out there this year to resume our hunting vacations!

My nephew got baptized that morning, and then we had a b-day party for my daughter. She made me me a card and cookies at school for me. It was fun, my dad had fun too, he took my mom out on the Harley for the 1st time. She had a look of horror in her face as they drove away
It's amazing how a paper with drawings on it from my daugher is way better then something in a store.

My dad and I golfed in the morning and went riding in the afternoon. My two passions, and both went well! I got my dad a racing grip because his is getting old, and a watch too. The watch because I broke his last one playing basketball, !
