My Dad is better than your Dad!

It is a true fact...

My Dad is cooler, more fun, nicer, more charming, funny, more creative, extremely talented, more honest, has more integrity, is more polite and friendly, helpful, more respectful, service oriented, delightful, smart, strong, warmhearted, and more thoughtful then your Dad. He really is the best dad ever!

A few days ago I went to his store in Provo where he was working. He was busy helping customers. He would greet each person who came through his line and even make light conversation with each person. I have always admired that about him. He can make each person, each stranger, seem like they have been friends for a long time. I watched him for a minute and realized I needed to let him work. I walked around the store for a while, just browsing about. Then, over the intercom system I hear his friendly voice... "Amy Oscarson, if you are in the store will be please come up to registerd 4 so I can sing Happy Birthday to you." Mind you, it wasn't my birthday, but I came running up to register 4 with a BIG smile on my face. He sure knows how to make me laugh!

I love you Dad. Happy Father's Day!!!!

(Grandpa likes to jump right in and do whatever the Grandkids are doing. How many Grandpa's do you know who would play Rock Band.... and be good at it?)

I will also have to say I have the greatest Father-in-law!! John is an incredible Father and Grandpa. Do you see that smile on Zander's face? Well, he is doing his favorite thing with one of his favorite people!! When Zander was a baby he was pretty shy. Often times he would cry if he couldn't find me. There were very few he would let hold him.... Grandpa J was one of the few who could comfort him. Grandpa J holds a very special spot in my heart. From the moment I met him he treated me just like I was a member of the family. And what a treat it was for me to marry Niel and become a real Oscarson!!! I love being a part of the family!!!

We love you Grandpa J! Happy Father's Day!!!

I think your dad is great too! I am impressed with your father in law too because of Niel. I am sure he must be a great man. Life sure is nice when we have "Super-Men" in our lives.
