My Dad is So Cool!!

My dad was in town last week for the 2008 Western States Police & Fire Games. They were in Boise this year...and so are we, how cool! The boys and I went to watch the ole man do his thing. They've never seen him shoot and I've talked about it their whole lives. Dad entered the Archery competition senior division, since he is 70, but found out when we got there that no one else had entered the senior division and he was going to have to shoot against the 40-45 year olds for 2 days. Never one to back down from a challenge, he continued on. The first day he won the Silver Medal! He's always taken the gold but was particularily proud since he was playing against the 'kids'. The second day things were back to normal as he took the GOLD!!! Yeah Daddy! You still got it ole man! We are so proud of you :o)


  1. Wow! That is amazing! Congratulations to your dad, and how neat that your boys got to see it, too!

  2. That is really neat!! Congrats for having an award winning dad!!! Ü
