My Hero. My Dad.

Today is Father's Day and I wish I was hanging out with my Dad today.  He's a fun guy and I'm always happy to see him.  Luckily, he came over last night to help me with a little project that I'm working on for a party I'm having this week. 

Now let me explain that this project is not that serious.  It's actually a little silly that I'm doing it.  But I've always been a girl that gets an idea and CAN'T LET IT GO until it's done.  And I will include (some may call it annoy) my friends and family in my little projects.  Anyway, I decided I wanted to make a lemonade stand prop.  Long story short, I needed some help with the construction  of it.  Not having power tools is kind of a problem when you want to build something.  My Dad offered to come over to help me.  He's a good Dad because he didn't really know what I was doing but he knows me well enough to know that I was going to bother someone until they helped me.  HA.

So he brought over his drill and in five minutes he had done the job.  BUT, I still didn't know how to attach another piece.  So we went to Home Depot and got some wood to help.  And since he really does know me better than anyone, he brought a saw with him because he wasn't sure what this project was going to entail. 
And with his help, I now have a lemonade stand prop.  I had painted the crate and the boards before he got there.  It looks like a lemonade stand right?

And the reason I write about this today is because on Father's Day, I'd like to publicly thank him for helping me with all the crazy little projects I've done in my life.  The thing I appreciate is that he doesn't even question why I'd be making a lemonade stand.  He just helps me trouble shoot how to do it and helps make it happen.  He's always done that for me.  I wanted to do a ridiculous science project in 7th grade, and he didn't even question it, he just helped me make a really cool display.  It won honorable mention, I might add.  It shows how great he is.  He just wants to help me succeed in doing anything I want to do.  Even if it is just a random lemonade stand. 

Happy Father's Day, Dad!  I think you're the best and I wish I could get you this...
But for now, I took a picture for you.  Ha! 

I had so much fun hanging out with you last night.  Happy Father's Day, Dad.  xoxo

He had a wonderful example! Love the lemonade stand! If I were in Oneonta I'd pay a nickel for a glass...:)
