My Dad!!!!

I want to pay a little tribute to my dad. I have the best dad in the world!! I have so many awesome memories growing up in my family. Dad took us on many camping trips, even though I wasn't the best camper, I loved being out with my parents. My dad took me fishing in a boat one time and baited the hook for me. I caught so many fish that he finally told me to just watch him because he was tired of baiting the hooks!! That was such a fun time for me.
We went many times to get fire wood. Dad was so patient with me because I am NOT a woodsy person, but he taught me how to work! I actually enjoyed most of those outings because we would have a picnic that mom prepared and we would get to talk about anything with him.
I know how much of an impact he and mom made in Lakeside. When people find out who I am they always have the most awesome stories of service they provided or the fun parties they had. I love listening to their memories and know that they truly loved my dad.
I am so honored to be your daughter!! Thank you dad for everything you have done and given to me. Thank you for being a righteous priesthood holder. I know when I was looking for a husband, I wanted him to have the qualities that you have. Thank you for teaching me the gospel, and going to all of the daddy-daughter dates with me!
I am so grateful Heavenly Father sent me to you. I hope you have an AWESOME father's day! Love you lots!!!
