We began a tradition several years ago to go camping on Father's Day weekend with as many of our family that could make it. With the weather forecast looking a little unsettled we packed up and set up camp at Ellison Provincial Park on Okanagan Lake. The sun shone, seven of our 16 joined us, and we had a fun time.

I think our 4 children and 8 grandchildren would echo this sentiment.

patience, and joy in the experience even when the fish get away.

Looks like you had lovely weather and a good time together!! We missed being with you, of course! And yes, the quote describes Dadoo quite perfectly. Love you Daddy!
