Happy Fathers Day!

What does Father’s day have to do with Travel you might ask? Well, if you are a father who views life as a journey, then there is a significant correlation. Sifting through photo’s (as I often do) I am reminded of the precious commodity we call time and, like our travels, how quickly it passes. Looking through pictures also seems to put life into perspective, allowing us to glimpse the big picture rather that just the moment at hand.

With fathers day approaching I find great joy in looking back through my collection of photos and thanking God for blessing me with my precious family. One of my most favorite roles in life is as a father. Thanks for letting me share a few of my special memories below as I reflect on years past with my family.
