Happy Father's Day
Just wanted to say happy father's day to my three favorite dads: Tom, Stan and Elbert.
Tom and my dad got to be a little pampered by me on Sunday where we enjoyed some new recipes (recipe posts to follow. think of stuffed french toast, grilled mahi-mahi, grilled new potatoes and apricot upside down cake.)
I am very grateful for the wonderful fathers in my life.
Elbert is such a great dad to Thomas and a super fun grandpa. I think he raised the perfect man. He is such a selfless man. He always looks out for our needs. He is the best pediatrician especially when I don't want to call the real one.
Stan is such a wonderful man as well. I think he did a pretty fine job in raising me and he continues to be such a wonderful part of our lives. I look forward our sunday dinners together and the fun conversations we have regarding running or politics or even the environment. He is such a motivation to me to stay fit. He continues to run and hike every day. He still runs marathons and skis black diamonds in his 70s. I hope to be half as fit as he is when I am 70.
But the best dad in my life is of course, Tom. He is such a great father to our kids. He is so kind, so patient, so fun, such an example, and he even cleans, cooks and rarely complains. I couldn't have asked for a better dad for my kids. And it doesn't hurt that he gave them all his stunning good looks.
Happy Father's Day!
