My Dad

"What's the first thing that pops into your mind when you think of your father?"

I think of the word "tremendous." That is my dad's highest ranking for something, kind of like 5 stars. So if we get a "tremendous" we've done the best we can do and we are always striving for that ranking.
Like just this last Monday, Memorial day, we had a family gathering at my house. It was kind of a last minute idea I had to have a BBQ in our back yard. I put out an email to my siblings to see who wanted to come and they all did. Everyone brought food for the dinner and then we had a great evening. Good food and lots of fun. All of the cousins had fun playing together while the "men" played basketball. It was Paul, Taylor and Camren against Dale, Jadon and Parry. It was fun just to watch them all have such a good time. The only sad thing was Justin couldn't be here because he had to work. It was great to visit and be outside and finally enjoy some good weather. My dad enjoyed just sitting in his chair watching everyone and then Kierra asked him if he wanted to play a game. So they set up a table outside in the backyard and he, Kierra and Brooke played domino's. (I'm really sad there are no pictures of the event. My camera's battery was dead).
When my dad was leaving he was very appreciative of the efforts made to get together and then he said "its been TREMENDOUS!"
