Father's Day Jump

I have had the perfect Father's Day gift purchased for about a month now.

I am so excited!

I told my mom and my sisters and they seemed to think that it was a good idea to let the Mister simmer in the plans instead of just springing it on him last minute.

I'm not so good at keeping secrets and I made it an entire month without a peep.

Well, the other night I decided it was time to tell him so he could get ready.

I got him SKYDIVING!!!!

This is something that has been on his bucket list since before we got married.  It's finally time.

He was really excited when I told him but even better than that was the kids' reaction.

Zoey:  You're totally going to pee your pants Dad!

Em:  What if you chute doesn't open?  Then you'll probably die Dad.

Rugs:  If you die can I have your truck?

(They quickly divided up everything from his truck, his tools, his computer, and even his side of the bed. They were thinking this out a little too well for the Mister's taste.)


Zoey:  This is so awesome!  Can I tell my friends at school?

Rugs:  Can we come and watch you?

They peppered him with questions for the rest of the evening which was highly entertaining.

It's going to be a couple of really loooong days until jump day.  But soooo worth it!

Best Father's Day EVER!  (Although it's going to be hard to top this next year.)

Holy crap you are awesome. Never in a million years would I dare (or dare my husband) to do that. Too big of a chicken. Can't wait to hear how it goes!
