Father's Day 2023 Begins with him at home getting a gift from his kids

Gavin didn't have a Father's Day card for his dad but he wrote something for him. Lovely thoughts and shows the type of father Thomas is and how he is loved and respected.

I would like to start out by wishing you, Father, the most wonderful time during this well deserved holiday. You have raised two absolutely amazing and impeccable children, but we can talk about that later. Being a Father is not easy in the slightest, and I understand that wholeheartedly. But I want to truly try and put into words why you are unique in the way you raise your children. I understand you have always tried to be strict and set rules, but my favourite times with you is those times when you can just relax with us and we can spend time together. Just two night ago, for example, when me and you were just talking while playing diablo 4, was truly enjoyable and comfortable to have your presence around. Or those time when we used to make cuddle mountains on the couch, as I liked to call them in my mind, when we would watch a movie while being really close to you and snuggling nice and tight. I daresay that is a very rare sight to see with the relationship between child and parent these days, but the fact that you care about us so much and have it in your heart to always forgive and forget is something I truly admire. You have always made sure to be a strong role model, even in the short time we have together, and keep on loving us fiercely through our mistakes. I appreciate you being such an amazing father to us and making sure we progressed properly in life. You have always been there for me, whenever I needed it, and that has affected me much more than you realize. I would like to say one last time, thank you for being such an amazing father

Have a wonderful Fathers day Dad


Then over to dad's house for supper

4 July-Now she is going off to her prom

On week of 25 July Thomas and Jessica went to a trailer near water for peace and quiet and renewal. Look at their beautiful view...

It was a beautiful vacation needed to get away from the daily responsibilities of life. The disconnection within an off-grid trailer was the best situation for this. We were able to engage in some friendly games of scramble, which Thomas is "King". We enjoyed coffee with a picturesque view. It was the ideal location to remove the worries of the world. Thomas made French press coffee every morning. We managed the humidity with a swim in Mellon Lake, which was refreshing until the fish decided to try and snag a bite on my belly button ring. That was the quick end to the swimming adventure. Thomas embraced his impeccable chef skills with BBQ prime rib steaks cooked to perfection with a delicious accompaniment of Spinach, mushrooms and onions. Thomas embraced his manliness by making an outstanding fire. We did enjoy it within the comforts of the screened room as the mosquitos tried to carry us away. We made it out of the trailer with Thomas's skillful driving skills as it was on an ATV road. The connection and experience will be remembered for a lifetime. Now, to see what the next adventure holds for us. Overall, much-needed relaxation was had in the comforts of Stone Mills Township
