The final part of my education had me going to Long Beach to do a 2 1/2 day practical. When I finished, I met up with my brother and sister-in-law and we ended up shopping at a big mall.
Father's day was coming and I was in search of the best gift for my husband. We saw a shop in the mall where they made customized shirts. This is what Louie received for Father's day 20 years ago:
The shirt says: I'm a great Dad, just ask: Nicholas, Hannah, Ben, Megan, Diane, Nathan, Jared, Joel, Kimera.
The lady in the shop couldn't believe I wanted NINE kids on the shirt!!!!
My son-in-law, Luke, was asking Louie on his birthday (the week before Father's Day) what the best gift was that he could remember receiving and Louie said it was this shirt.
Well. . . the kids got together and decided to do another:
This is the whole family as of Father's Day, 2013
Top row is Nicholas' family
Second row is Hannah (who will forever be pregnant) and Luke; Ben, and his family (Victoria will also forever be pregnant)
Third row is Megan; then Diane and her family,
Last row is Nathan, Jared and Joel (all three are military) and Kimera (who is no longer the baby!)
Louie certainly got a kick out of this one!!
