Happy Father's Day

Today is the day we celebrate Fathers and it wouldn’t be a day without celebrating my dad. He’s part of who made me the man I am today. Without him and without his advice I wouldn’t be able to do what I do today. He’s taught me so much about life and family and he truly is a special man.

So dad I wish you an amazing Father’s Day. Love you dearly.

 

Happy Father's Day Dad!

P1010657 Today is a day we celebrate our fathers. Be them alive or no longer with us, we celebrate them. I’m one of the lucky ones who still have my father with us and as I get older I appreciate him more and more.

This year has been a difficult year for him. With my mother suffering a stroke back in November, he’s had to take charge and begin to look after her. I’m not saying he has never looked after my mom, he now has to take on her role as well in the family and it hasn’t been easy for him.

He has taught me so much throughout my life. He taught me how to ride a bike, he taught me how to fish (though I haven’t fished in YEARS), he taught me how to build a fire, he taught me how to prune plants and shrubs, he taught me how to make an asado (Argentinian BBQ), he taught so many things that everytime I do them I remember him.

So dad, on this special day, and every other day day, Happy Father’s Day!

Today is the day we celebrate fatherhood. Even though I myself am not a father (unless you count Junior and Cyd as kids), I’m happy to still have my father around with me. We might be miles away from each other, but we always stay connected someway. I never feel far away from him and he is always deep in my thoughts.

Supposedly my dad is back in Toronto right now, and as I type this I’m sure he is busy watching the World Cup as it plays out!

There are so many great memories I have with my dad, from him showing me how to fish, him showing me how to make a great bbq – Argentina style, to him showing me some DYI’s.

Of course we might not always agree, we somehow manage to get over it.

So Dad, today I wish you a happy Father’s Day!

In Toronto – Happy Father's Day

I’m finally on the grid (thanks to my niece Amanda who has internet at her place) and I’m able to post some photos on my Flickr page as well as blog a little.

It’s funny how dependant you can get when you are not on the internet. My cell phone only goes so far. Maybe when the iPhone comes to town I’ll be able to access WordPress.

Today is Father’s Day and I had the chance to actually spend it with my father for the first time in many years. Even when I was here in Toronto before, my father was working in Mexico. This feels great since I actually can’t remember the last time I’ve spent Father’s Day with my dad. Happy Father’s Day – Dad!

We actually headed out of the city with my brother-in-law Danny and his two sons to watch my nephew Steven go-kart racing. This little kid surprises me with his ability to drive and race a go-kart. I’m actually surprised to have seen everyone who was there racing from the youngest to the oldest. Though Steven didn’t finish very well, it was fun to have the time to have seen him race through his warm up laps, time trial and then final race
