Preamble To Father’s Day

I’m looking forward to Father’s Day. My first Father’s Day, as a dad, I blogged in 2006.

Little Luke on my First Father’s Day

Then I had my first official Father’s Day and blogged about it in 2007.

Luke on my second Father’s Day

Well, my third Father’s Day is just around the corner. It’s hard to believe – the time travels fast, but no complaints, Luke is at such a fun age and is so delightful to play and live with. Today we went on a hike in Oak Lawn at what we call the “secret river” – a beautiful hidden man made river tucked away in a busy suburb just a few houses from my wife’s folks. Granted, its more of a drainage ditch than a “river” but its still pretty beautiful. Especially a walk with daddy and son…

We started out around the block and discovered a hidden bridge! the ends led to a chain link fence that was chained and locked, but could be entered from the side quite easily.

There’s just something fun about going exploring!

Look at that happy boy!

Just too cute!

What fun hiking and climbing around!

It looks like a real river anyway.


I wonder where this path goes?

Later, we got the sidewalk chalk out.

Not quite a Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet or Pierre-Auguste Renoir, but I did my best.

Father’s Day 2008 here I come!
Being a dad is the greatest thing in the world!

  1. Seeing Luke grow up so fast right here on the internet, just reinforces my suspicions of my own kids. That they grow up way to fast and how important it is to always be on the lookout to build those great memories with them.

    I really know that Luke probably drew those great pictures;0)

  2. thanks for sharing this. Happy father’s day!
