Father's Day on a Unicycle

On Father's Day, we could hear the kids going up and down the stairs, and little whispers, "Shhh, don't wake Daddy...C'mon! Hurry" A little while later, they came down with an envelope. There was a drawing of a snake by Eamon...


Another drawing by Cam (Bran doing a jump on his skateboard, a snake, and Bran working on his car)

And on the back this....

There was also about $1.50 in change in the envelope...So sweet.




As for Bran's gifts from me:

A few weeks ago, Brandon sent me the video below and was all "jazzed" about it. ha Through a friend, I saw this t-shirt based on the clip. It's from the old BMX movie "Rad". As an early Father's Day gift, I gave it to him last week so he could wear it on his boys' trip to Vegas. He loved it. Here's a clip of the scene from the shirt.... WATCH IT. So bad it's good.








He also got a book called Salt Lake City: Then and Now. It shows pictures of old buildings in Salt Lake taken when they were built, and what they look like now or what is in their place if they've been demolished. He got a vintage light meter, and at the same store, I found found this beauty.....


It's an old Sears & Roebuck unicycle. He replaced the tire and gave it a whirl. Hilarity ensues.... This video is like 3 1/2 min. long, but at least watch the first minute.








And to Papa Seth, we're so glad you're our Dad, and we could spend it with you... Happy Father's Day.

This is GREAT. I was on the Unicycle team in elementary school. We'd do entire routines, with music and ramps. I was hot.

Okay you are so funny. I really was hoping that he was going to take off on it. Well maybe he can give them tips next time they make a unicycle and make sure there are holes in the seats, two wheels and a handle bar. LOL

Aren't you a good wife! Unfortunately, that movie was too painful to watch. And so was the unicycle one.

Ang said...

You guys always come up with the best gifts! I won't be surprised when Brandon is a unicycle pro by next week.

What cute Father's day gifts from the kids!! I hope he spent his $1.50 wisely!

Phat Mama said...

Oh my gosh! That is seriously the worst movie of all time. Gotta love the 80's. Lori Loughlin obviously really wanted to be an actress- cuz she was willing to do ANYTHING!
The eunich-cycle clip was hysterical!

Sooooo Hot said...

I need to see part two to this video. Can Brandon ride that sucker yet? I want one so bad and just asked the Mrs. if I could get one. She said I had to take a look your video so here I am. I found one online from Nashbar bikes for $80. Is it worth it???
