Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all those father's out there. Sadly, Howard won't be able to wish his father a happy one this year. The picture here is really the last time we saw Howard Sr. and Catherine, when they attended Scott's High School graduation. They drove all the way from Florida to help him celebrate. The picture of me with my Father is the last time I saw him. It was in February, 2006, when Howard and I were in San Diego and drove up to LA to have dinner with my Dad and Ingrid. I can't say I've ever really spent Father's Day with my father. If I ever did, I must have been quite young, as I have no memory of it. The picture of the Mitchells at Christmas is the last time Howard spent with all three of his children under one roof. Amber went back to NY and shortly after that Tyler was off to Hawaii. Scott was home this morning to wish his Father a happy day, but then off to spend a week up north with friends. Amber sent a gift (a lovely engagement picture of her and Andrew)and called him. I'm sure Tyler will call him later, when he gets up!! I'll spend the day pampering him, breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared to his liking and having nothing on the "honey do list". My children are lucky to have such a loving Father who has taken such great care of his family all these years and provided for them in every way. As someone who has never really had a close relationship with their father, I am thankful my children have that. Someone who loves them unconditionally and is always so proud of them and thankful for their love.
