Last weekend took us to Springfield for a friend's wedding. Lucky for us, the trip also allowed us to spend time with family and celebrate Andy's first Father's Day.
As luck would have it, Anthony's Kickapoo High School football team was hosting a golf tournament Saturday morning. Amidst t-shirts bearing the Kickapoo rally cry of FEAR THE POO, four of us entered the fray. Even though Anthony's football coaches scowled at me as I repeatedly suggested that Anthony should abandon this football nonsense and join the golf team, I had a blast!
Later that day, Helen and I attended Jerry and Leslie's wedding in their backyard. It was beautiful.
We got to see good friends
and meet Phil's new family.
Sunday was Father's Day. We gathered the Springfield Crows and Anthony's Grandparents for a Happy Father's Day lunch and photo shoot. A group photo was taken.
So was a photo of Anthony and his Grandparents.
And a photo of Helen holding Hope. (A common sight.)
And a photo of cute baby Hope with Andy on his first Father's Day.
That afternoon, we drove home to Topeka where I got to hug my wonderful father.
That evening, I got to talk with my loving daughter. So, in the spirit of fatherhood, and with special warm memories of Opa,
I hope you had a good Father's Day weekend.
