Circle Of Life, Fathers Day blog.

RJ, it has been so long since I updated this blog, but our day today, I needed to comment about.

Today we took you to Knoebel's Amusement Park, not the first time, but the first time you really understood what was going on. You loved all the rides. Your favorite was the cars that went around the track, they were my favorite too when I was a young boy.

The whole day, I couldn't help but think back to going to Knoebels with my parents. And on this Fathers Day weekend, the way my Dad used to go on these rides with me. I used to beg him to take me on the same car ride you wanted to keep riding. My dad used to take me on the boats, which he always loved, and I loved because he loved them. Soon you will be big enough to go on the bumper cars, another thing my dad, and your grandfather loved.

The whole day, as we walked around the park, and I put you on one ride after another, I couldn't help but to think of my dad doing the same thing for me.

I know you are still too young to remember days like these. However I know there will be many more days like this that we will share together. And I hope, one day, you will have your own children to share memories with, and that you will remember and think about me, the way I was thinking about my dad today.

Happy Fathers Day to all Fathers. God Bless you RJ, you still can manage to make me angry one minute, and crack me up the next.
