Copied from the other father's day thread (I'm proud of my boy):

I had the best father's day yet.

My son is 5 and he's finally gotten to the age where the dialogue is getting intense and he understands things a lil more. He's a sweet, sensitive kid who has a independent streak a mile wild. He's a thinker - clearly prefers to understand what he is about to do before just jumping into. He doesn't really whine and listens well. I am so proud of the fact that everywhere he goes (preschool, relative's houses, friends, anywhere) we get compliments on how well behaved he is and how he's so helpful.

So my wife decided this Fathers day to help a friend of her's fly her grandson out from Seattle (she got a free round trip ticket and free lodging in seattle - I dont blame her). That left little man Larry and I at home alone.

I instantly thought to myself - let's do Disney. The last time the two of us tried Disney all alone he was only 3 and got sick (like hospital sick the next day) while at the park. Freaking winter cold. With that in mind, I picked a day to hit Disney in a FREAKING heat wave. Oh well.

Lemme just preface what I am about to say by stating that his favorite thing to do w/ his Daddy is to swim, go hiking, and go offroading (in that order).

So we did Disney (got in free - good to know people). Getting in free takes all the pressure off - you dont have to wait in long lines or worry about missing something - you didnt drop $150 just to walk in the gate. We did monorails, ferry boats, jungle cruise, train ride, pirates of the carribean, and the train ride all the way around the park. Oh and we did Tom Sawyer's island where you basically just walk around the island "exploring." No real rides.

My lil man finally got all overheated and tired (despite me pushing liquids on him every 20 seconds) around 1 pm so I put him on my shoulders, he giggled, and I trekked all the way across that park and to the monorails with him. Quite a work out w/ the lil man up there and the heat - but he loved it.

As we were walking, I asked him what his favorite part of the day was. You expect to hear a 5 year old say "The train!" or something of that nature. My lil man leans his head down, kisses me on the cheek, and says "Hiking on the island with you daddy." I tell you fellas, my big dumb ass walked down mainstreet USA w/ tears in my eyes in front of thousands of tourists streaming by. I've never been so proud of ANYONE in my life as I was of my son. Best father's day present ever.

Here's a few pics..

The lil man getting to ride the train he looked forward to all day long:

He perked up when he saw me about to take a picture. He was exhausted at this point (riding on the monorail):

Riding home, the temperature has JUST turned from 100º when I snapped this pic (this is FL heat folks - high humidity):

But we got home and found a fun way to beat the heat!

A pic from last month, but this is the dynamic duo right here. The advantage of having a child that was born 3 months early is that he's still small enough at age 5 to carry him on your shoulders (about the size of your avg 3-4 year old):

Happy Father's Day fellas. I know it's a hallmark holiday, but man it's a good feeling to be a dad.
