A good friend of mine on the Taco once told a story about her father that moved me to tears. It helped me to better understand 'a girl's perspective.' Something I find very difficult to do of course.

Anyway, my daughter made me a father's day video that encompasses all my daughters, both blood and 'adopted.' I've been taking them out on adventures since they were old enough to walk. We just do it, its not like its an inventment.

Me and the girls - call it the G-Team

Anyway, I hoped you all might enjoy this video and I was in a mood for sharing.

"When tough little boys, grow up to be dads, they turn into big babies again."

You are a blessed, lucky, and fortunate man, Dingus. Good for you.

My daughter Alisa made up this boulder problem. She is wearing her pants backwards. I did not notice it until I finished shooting the movie.

Holy crap, Dingus, that is awesome!

If I'm ever a dad, I promise do what I can to show my kids some of the wonder of this world. You're an inspiration.

Thanks. Climbing coaches recommend no systematic climbing-related training until the kid is 8. Instead, they suggest gymnastics for 2-3 years, while climbing just for fun, then drop gymnastics and start training for climbing. Providing the kid is still interested in it.

Dingus. The world would be a better place if more girls had dads like you.

Thank you for sharing the video. It was touching and inspirational. I hope that I have been as good of a mom to my boy as you have been to your girls.

All the best,
a

Dingus, it looks like you have a cool clan, which doesn't surprise me one bit. Keep up the good work, and may peace be with you when they're in high school....

Amazing... You are a great man, D. I am moved by that video.
