#BESTDADEVER - Happy Father's Day

I'll admit it!  I have the BEST DAD EVER!  
Challenge me if you want...but I think you'll have a difficult time proving me wrong!
Growing up...I was every bit a daddy's girl!  I loved being in the garage with him, working with tools, learning to ride a bike, learning to change the oil on my car, learning how to put on a spare tire, learning how to check all the levels before I leave on a trip (so I am never stranded), learning how to drive a car, helping me find a job, playing basketball together, swimming, seeing his face at all my sports events, and hearing him say he was PROUD of me always made me thankful!  Not everyone's daddy is that patient, concerned or caring to teach their kids important things like my dad taught me!  
I have always been one lucky girl!
Now he's doing that type of stuff with my kids!  It really warms my heart!  Over the past couple of years, they have built birdhouses together, made a wooden sword together, gone fishing together, taken a car door apart to fix the window together, read plays together (yes, he's acted out parts), gone swimming together, etc.  You get the idea!  Lots of awesome memories already being made with the kids and THEIR PAPA!  
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS and I know he does too!
As I've gotten older, I've learned to truly, wholeheartedly appreciate my dad!  Not everyone can say that about their dad and I am so beyond thankful that I can!  I honestly don't know what I would do without him!   REALLY...I don't!  He taught me to work hard, to take care of myself, to be responsible, to take responsibility for my actions, to budget & handle money, to use tools, to protect myself, to be independent, to trust THE LORD in all things and to SMILE big (I love his big smile)!!
He's been one of my biggest supporters and I know he truly loves me!  

Over the years we have laughed together and cried together!  We have wished together and mourned together.  I THANK GOD so much for my dad!
I think my sister and I have one of the coolest DAD's around!!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to my DADDY and my kids PAPA too!
