Happy Father's Day

Since I tooted my own horn as a traveling mom on Mother's Day, it seems only fair that I acknowledge my better half in our journey as a traveling family. Because while I can swing a quick outing to a museum or zoo on my own, anything beyond a few hours requires a helping hand these days.

Fortunately, back in high school I snagged just such a partner, and I haven't let him go since.

I know some weekends, after a long week of work, he'd probably rather do this:

But instead, I drag him on some crazy adventure, and instead he does this:

I appreciate his patience, his willingness to try new things, and his enthusiasm for bringing our boys along on our travels. I love that he keeps us all laughing, even when things aren't going as planned. (And I should point out that without his freakishly awesome navigation skills and sense of direction, we would be a family who often finds themselves lost!)

Happy Father's Day to the best one I know! And while I'm loving on the Arrow's dad, a special shout-out to my own father, whose love of travel (even lengthy business trips) and adventurous spirit inspired my own wanderlust.

To all the wonderful dads out there, enjoy your weekend! We're taking the boys camping, so I'm sure you'll be hearing more about that.
