Since I work here, I can't enter the contest, so I thought I'd share a photo of me and my dad from 1987 here. This is from a luau-themed Daddy/Daughter night at my church.
I was the fifth kid out of six, and between the six of us, we kept him busy with loads of swim meets, soccer games, community theatre plays, basketball games, baseball games, football games, piano recitals, and choir performances, to name just a few. But when one of these events would come around, he was always ready to have a good time.
We went on regular Daddy/Daughter campouts with our church group, too. Those were my favorite because it meant we would make a junk food run at the PW (the local grocery store in San Jose), and then listen to John Denver on the drive up to the Santa Cruz Mountains. The actual camping part I could take or leave, but I loved the good times we had on the drive, eating Twix bars and singing along to "Take Me Home, Country Roads."
Now that you've heard my memories, I hope you're inspired to share yours. And I know your photo can't be any more embarrassing and goofy than mine.
Head over to our Facebook page and share!
