Happy Father's Day!

Dads deserve a lot of credit. That's why they get a day of recognition, and hopefully, a little peace and quiet. My dad decided for his special day, he wanted to have a picnic at Independence Grove, a fabulous park in Libertyville that features a beach, lake, awesome playground, paved paths and rentals of all kinds. It's probably the nicest forest preserve I've ever seen. They have modern toilets with walls and everything! DuPage and Cook counties, take note. We headed out today to barbecue.

So we flew a kite. I also threw the frisbee in the general area of my family members, which was a big ol' fail on my end. I couldn't even get someone to play with me after a while. I need practice.

Dad got some great swag, including a Garmin Forerunner for his outdoor walking and workouts. I can't wait to see how he likes it!

And he made us some hot dogs and brats. I had forgotten how awesome charcoal-cooked food tastes. Note to self: move somewhere that allows charcoal grills, STAT.

So here's to all the awesome dads out there. Thanks for always being there for household repairs, advice on my 401K and ideas on what that strange sound coming from my car is. Love you, dad!
