Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day
to all you fathers out there. 

Being a dad is a really big job
and if done right,
it pays well with

Love and Smiles...

from your family.

Although PaulA is not my father..
I wanted to celebrate PaulA...
the father of our 3 children...
a man who has been a pillar of strength and love
for all 4 of us. 

Seeing  my own Dad is 240 miles away...
I decided to follow PaulA around and do whatever he wanted. 
His choice. 
Name it...this Kat would be in.
No fussy Kat.  No finicicky Kat. No fruity Kat...
Just all in...all 4 paws.

We took a 4 mile his speed not mine. 
My legs are a lot shorter,
but I found if I moved them twice as fast,
 I could keep up...
even if I looked like a hamster running on a wheel beside him.

Next up...was ocean kayaking. 
Luckily it wasn't too wavy today. 
30 minutes out to "The Point" and 30 minutes back.
paddle.  paddle.  paddle.
Alleve. Alleve. Alleve.

Then there was
weeding of the 120 steps to the beach,

 clipping of the bushes,
working of the yard.

Will he ever stop? 

PauA...the cute Energizer Bunny
...on steroids.


I have a sneaking suspicion that if I had followed my Dad around today
instead of my husband......
I might have gotten a  little more rest

and maybe even caught a few

But, right now....
it's X's and O's...
to both Dads.

Smiles all around.
