Ode to Pat

Father's Day is coming up this weekend and I was just thinking what an amazing father Pat is to our boys! I wanted to honor him by telling him what I love best about him. This is for you Patricio! You're the best!

  • You have an amazing attitude and outlook on life. You always seem to smile and find the funny side of things.
  • You are a joker in every sense of the word. Always wanting to play tricks on people or get people to laugh or be entertained.
  • You are so easy-going and never (well, almost never) freak out about things that should be a big deal.
  • You like to have fun and be where the party is at!
  • You are a softy. You don't have a mean bone in your body. (Except the one that likes to tease me).
  • You are great with the kids and they love you!

Some things you might not know about PAT:

He doesn't drink soda (or anything carbonated).

He loves sour patch kids, lime popsicles (the real fruit kind) and anything sour.

He would play basketball every night if possible.

He is allergic to cats...some dogs, too, but he still wants to get a hypoallergenic dog one day.

He got his U.S. Citizenship 5 years was awesome! (He was born in Peru).

He loves books, bookstores, reading, newspapers, anything to do with fun facts, he's there!

He is a sucker for garage sales. Forget about it!

G A T O R A D E. Citrus Cooler was his favorite, but they discontinued it! Sad.

This boy can eat! And loves to. He has been known to say that "food brings the Spirit".

He has a big heart. He is willing to help anyone anytime and does with a cheerful attitude.

Oh, we MISS you guys! We need to do something one of these days! Pat is always very fun to be around, and we think the world of BOTH of you. My father was also born in Peru. I've never been there before, but Tyler & I are DYING to see "Machu Pichu" (don't know if I spelled these words correctly). Happy Father's Day, Pat! :)
