my dad

He has climbed the Grand Teton 5 times since this picture. 
My parents and four brothers. He always put the family first.

I realize this is a day late, but better late than never right?! Well, at least that is what people say to comfort themselves. Consider myself comforted. Here are a couple pictures I came across this week of my dad. I have been helping my mom go through their papers/pictures and we have found quite a few treasures in the process. I will try to post more later, but for now I want to give you a brief introduction to a really great person.

He stands up for what is right, even when it isn’t the popular or fun thing to do.
He is humble, even though he would have a lot to brag about—I mean look at me! Ha ha, kidding.
He taught me almost everything I know about the Gospel.
He can accomplish anything he puts his mind to.
He taught me how to run fast and jump over hurdles.
He is a great storyteller.
He and my mom took us kids along everywhere they traveled.
He taught us to work hard.
He is a great foosball player, rock climber, and carp-shooter.
He is the best dad I could ever have hoped for.
