I got a pre-fathers day...day. The kids took me to the state history museum and then to the pool. I'm not certain that the second place was for me really. ;-) My 8 year old son asked me later what I liked best at the museum. There was so much there that I had to think about it. I found that I really did have a favorite. They had two actual pirate swords on display from ships sunk off the coast in the late 1600's. It was just...cool.
I am thinking that 8 years is a nice age to be. So much, I guess, we carry that year with us well into adulthood. Maybe so that we don't miss the experience of anything.
Happy Fathers Day!
