Happy 1st Father's Day--Warrior Daddy!

Tony got to celebrate his first Father's Day on Sunday. Very excited to get to share this day with him. Owen put a cherry on top of the day by waving for the first time at his daddy! We have tried to capture it on video, but every time the camera comes out, he decides he doesn't want to do it anymore!! Owen decided that we should buy daddy a new trimmer--he was tired of hearing him complain about doing yard work, so he thought he would make it a little easier on him:)

Now to the Warrior part.....On Saturday Tony, I, and a couple of friends traveled to Joliet for him to compete in "Warrior Dash." It is a 5K race with several obstacles along the way--including jumping over cars, cargo nets, jumping over fire, and crawling through mud under barbed wire! When he signed up for this months ago, I couldn't even imagine doing it with him, but I have to admit it looked like a lot of fun and I was a little sad that I didn't do it with him. I got to be the official photographer and cheerleader though....and I'm going to do it next year:) His goal was to finish it in under 40 minutes.....well he did that in amazing fashion! He finished in 28 minutes and 11 seconds! Congratulations Warrior Daddy!
