Last year, I spent Father’s Day at the U.S. Open. With a bunch of contributing accommodations including tickets, a place to stay, and a handful of air miles, Kymra let me go to Washington D.C. to watch our national championship at Congressional. While the biggest accommodation was Kymra encouraging me to do it, the convergence of factors that allowed me to go were made possible for less than $100 ($25 air mile ticket; $40 rental car; $25 for hot dogs at the overpriced concession stands).
It was really a great experience – definitely a check off on my bucket list as I was able to spend some great time with our dear friends, Doug and Monica Gill, watch Rory McIlroy make history, and otherwise, traipse around a U.S. Open golf course for as many hours as a day would allow.
This year I am taking in the U.S. Open in an equally spectacular and high quality fashion. Sincerely. Even as I write this, I’m laying on my favorite couch (which Kymra built) and will be watching the Open coverage from beginning to end with all of my favorite people in reach.
I love Father’s Day and I love that the U.S. Open lands on this day. Every year we have a discussion around what it is that I would like to do for the day. I always say the same thing: I want to lay on the couch, watch the Open, and have Kymra and my kiddos nearby. That’s a perfect day…especially the Kymra part!
Happy Father’s Day everybody. Today we celebrate the universal truth that dads are almost as cool as moms.
