I talk a lot about my mom on this blog, it seems. Here's a little bit on my dad. During the days following 'surprising Mabel,' the family visited as families do. We ate every possible meal together and sat around telling stories. Basically we hung out. During that time, Dad, really a marvel, can make a bigger event out of almost anything. And he often draws a crowd.
This time, he literally just started a fire outside in the snow. (Looking at these photos, I just realized that he must be where my nephews, siblings and I get our pyromania. We don't talk about it, but we all have it.)
And they come in shifts...
He takes something simple and just has fun. That's Dad.
