Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, I hope you're being gifted some cool camping equipment today!

I would like to wish my father a very Happy Father's Day.  He will be surrounded by his children, their spouses and almost all of his grandchildren with my mother by his side.  I am unfortunately missing at this gathering only because I am in Algonquin Park today.

Me and My Dad - Quite some time ago ;-P
My father never took me canoe camping, he never took me camping period. But what he did do is encourage me to do whatever I wanted, to not be restricted by my gender.  He also instilled in me the imperative to be physically active throughout my whole life. Thanks, Dad!  You gave me courage to try something that I get great enjoyment from.  I get to do something physical that puts me smack dab in the middle of an amazing Canadian national park.  

I would also like to wish my two brothers a Happy Father's Day as well.  They are great dads, great brothers and good guys overall. They have instilled in their children the importance of being physically active, as well as many other characteristics. A special Happy Father's Day to my brother-in-law. I was present when his son, my nephew was born and I've never seen a prouder dad.
