My Day

familyToday is my day. James and Michelle gave me an cute little iPod shuffle for when I go running and they each made me a little something. I'm told the iPod shuffle is a joint Father's Day and birthday gift, but I'm just glad to see my less-than-subtle hints weren't missed.

I spent the day playing with the kids, taking them to the park and enjoying a sweet little BBQ. Here's a photoset from earlier today.

This picture below was taken moments before I first became a dad. It's the last picture of a fatherless me. It was January 20, 2002, and everything was about to change forever. I may look happy in this picture, but I was yet to discover what true happiness is really all about.

Who was your BBQ with? I think someone was forgotten in this tribute to your special day.

All praise is due to my mom for hosting the 'Q.

I actually thought of you and what you will be doing with ur kids as soon as realised that Sunday was Father's Day. Cool pic and very Canadian of you to wear a cap of ur fav NHL team at the hospital as your wife is about to deliver.

I wanted the first thing James saw to be the maple leaf. I felt he should experience failure early in life.

Let the brain washing begin ;). Seriously though, this was my first Father's Day and I look forward to many, many more.
