Father’s Day – Travel Fun With My Dad

Sunday Summary

My wonderful Dad and one of my sons.

Today also made me think to the great time I have had with my Dad. He and my mom were just here for a visit a week ago and we had a great time. I have been fortunate to go on some great trips with my dad. Several years ago, we spent a week together in Israel and had some memorable things on that trip. A couple of years before that, my dad joined me at the halfway point of my running marathon distances on multiple continents.

Most recently, we hooked up last year in New York City to take in a Yankee game and spend the night in the city. All of these and more make for some great memories with my dad – and I am thankful for each one of them. I am looking forward to many more!
