Father’s Day is coming up and we have teamed up with Cardstore to Celebrate Dad with a Pin it for Papa Giveaway!  This is a fun way to thank Dad for being #1 and to show the special moments that made your relationship with you dad!


My older sister on the left, my dad, and me at 8 months old.

I hope you don’t mind if I share a bit about my dad.  I love him tons!  He is a quiet guy that knows almost everything, can fix almost anything, and can make you feel like a million bucks.  I feel super lucky he’s my dad.

As kids we would play games that he’d make up. One of my favorites was “Don’t Wake The Dragon.”  This is where my dad was the dragon sleeping on the couch. Us kids would try to tip-toe up to him and run past him quietly without him waking up.  I’m starting to wonder if this was his favorite game too, cause he could catch a little nap while we were attempting to be quiet?  Smart guy huh.

He would read to us almost every night.  I loved the books he read.  There are two books that are my all time  favorites, “There’s A Monster At The End of This Book,”  and “There’s No Such Thing As A Dragon.”





He was able to make the books come to life.

One fun memory I have with my dad was a fun little motorcycle ride.  He loves Honda Trail 150 motorbikes, and he had just worked all Saturday on one finishing it off with a wash and Armor All shine…everywhere.  I jumped on the back and we took off for a ride.  All was well, until he stopped at a stoplight.  I guess I should say that bike stopped and my dad kept on sliding because he made this seat all shiny and slippery.  I could not stop laughing.
