I know everyone knows that today is Father's Day. My dad lives 5 hours away from me, so I will have to call him this afternoon. Our son took his dad fishing bright and early this morning. They still are not back as I write this post, but he did post a couple of pictures on Instagram. No fish yet, but I am sure there will be plenty to talk about. Our son works for the same company as his dad, so they carpool almost everyday to work. Since this has been going on, a little over 1 year, I have noticed that they are closer to each other, and there isn't the tension between them any more like it use to be. This really makes me happy, but sad, my little boy has grown into a young man, someone whom I am very proud of. Of course, I did not raise him by myself, his dad was involved. I really should say we are the lucky ones. Chris has really not given us any trouble growing up, not to say mistakes were made by all parties, but mistakes help us learn and grow. I will grill Marty's favorite meal for dinner, tri tip, roasted corn, roasted potatoes and french bread. Dessert will be fresh fruit, blueberries and watermelon. I am very proud of the 2 men in my life! Wishing all of the dads out there, and single moms who had to be both mom and dad, a wonderful Father's Day 2012!!
