Because he works hard. Dad knows so much, and no matter what problem confronts him, he puts that knowledge to good use. Behold the masterful packing job he did when bringing me home from school; you never knew an engineering degree could come in so handy, huh?
Because he knows how to have fun, and he makes sure that everybody else is having fun too. While in Maine, he took the younger kids out in the canoe several times, so they could experience the lake along with the "big people." You can just pick out the canoe and kayak in the picture below . . .
Happy Father's Day :)
