Father’s day turned out be to more than just Kate and Me at the Broadwalk. My entire family came along and I’m glad they did. My bro-in law rented a van and the 6 of us hopped in and off we went. We got there at 9:45 and Kate and headed immediately to the beach, especially when Kate saw the sand.
Kate: I want to do go the sand
(we are coming up to the broad walk)
My Mom: Should we head over to breakfast?
Kate: Now, I want sand now!
Me: Uhh, I’m not hungry, drop us off here and pick us up later. BTW, my Treo is out of batteries, please try to find us.
9:45 am, I get a pager message from Yahoo! News that we had 404’s on the site, my Treo runs out of batteries. ARGGG, my parents already drove off.
I digged 5 inches down into the dry sand and open up a 8 foot wet sand pit for Kate. She and I built sand castles for 3 hours. The sun was nice but the beach was actually quite cold. I did a 200 sand push ups to keep warm. I tried looking for Aurora playing sand volleyball, didn’t see her but she was out there today.
I get found by my parents at 12:30pm and I ran over to the car to get my Treo charged and dial into work via bluetooth. I figured out the problem was with the MYSQL database and suggested a fix to my trusted comrad Glen and told him that I trusted him and I loved him (I didn’t really say that).
Thank god we hired some bad asses for Y! News.
After Kate had 6 turns at the Merry-go-around and a nice big ice cream cone, we head back home and had ourselves a kick ass BBQ. I let my sister play with Kate for the entire day (what a nice father’s day present) and I watched some DVD’s (Hoosiers) on my 17″ powerbook, had tons of Korean short ribs.
On a more personal note:
I also connected with a family friend who suffered from depression for several years and was reluctant to take drugs. But when she finally started taking drugs, her whole outlook on life changed. I think I’ll start taking meds for me to relieve my depression for a period of time. I’m a little sick of my mood swings.
