thankful today

The car wouldn’t start today.juan skateboarding 001
It kept turning over and making a weird noise.
It was hard to tell what the noise was because the little noise makers in the car were making SO much of their own noise.riley 1
Anyway, we piled out and we called my Dad.
Also known as Super Hero Among Men.juan skateboarding 006 love
As soon as he got off from work he zipped over.riley 5
The battery was dead.
We must have left a light on.riley 3
He jump started us with his car.riley 6
I thanked him profusely.
And told him he saved our lives.riley
He rolled his eyes and said I was overly dramatic.riley 4
Please.
Do I seem overly dramatic to you?

Hooray for Dad! I would say he's a hero too. We had to have Bob's truck towed tonight because the brakes went out. :(

The Incredible Woody said...

Nope, not overly dramatic in the least! Dads are the best:)

Lisa said...

I would NEVER say "overly dramatic" about you! NEVER!!!!!!!!! What on earth does he mean????


Love the picture of Kaishon...It's just great!!! :)

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Yay for Super Hero Among Men! :) So glad it wasn't anything serious. Great photos!!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Yep, he's a life saver and that's not at all being overly dramatic!

Tracy P. said...

Ah, those girly girls are darling. They might be over dramatic. Possibly. But not you. Never. ;-)

Jimi Ann said...

I love the photos of the skateboarding. My sons have ripsticks too -- what fun! I'm glad you were rescued today!

Modesty is Pretty said...

Overly dramatic? No! Not at all! I mean those things are hard to do, in fact I need some live-saving right now with the plumbing, maybe insignificant to a guy but for me it's a very difficult thing to do, so no you were not dramatic and I'm glad your dad was there to help. =D

Ami said...

We had to replace the battery in our vehicle today.

And I was extremely grateful to my son for getting it all taken care of while I SLEPT IN!!!

NO! You are NOT overly dramatic!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!

How lucky you are to have a sweet dad to come to the rescue, even if he says you are overly dramatic. I am sure he is thrilled by your appreciation!

Thankful for those beautiful photos, especially the second one with the haze and the sun flare and the love. So beautiful.

Marilyn said...

Well, maybe just a tad. But you are such a great photographer and you know creative types-----you have that excuse. Love that skateboard picture. And by the way, your dad is a super hero. But aren't we thankful our problems are just 1st world problems? Easily fixed with the help of super heroes.

Gigi said...

Overly dramatic? Nah - being without a car is the stuff that can bring on hysterics! ;-)

Colleen said...

Seriously, I'd be clueless without my husband! He's the car fix-it-all! I always call him and try to replicate the various sounds the car is making and he always knows what to do :) Glad your car is up and running again!

Mental P Mama said...

Nope. Just very thankful. I call that a good thing;)

He obviously exaggerates a bit.

I love a story with a good ending! And good dads to the rescue. I had a a group of young men rescue my truck from near calamity on Sunday but I didn't take pics as it was quite touch and go for a while. Glad your mishap turned out okay.

Formerly known as Frau said...

Your Dad is pretty awesome alright! Hope your car woes are behind you.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Dad to the rescue! I love that. And no it's not overly dramatic when a girl is rescued :-)

Dads are so AWESOME like that!

I don't think you're overly dramatic at all. AT. ALL. EVER.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!! *muah*

Kim said...

When things like that happen and you know you are helpless, it does feel like someone has saved you when they come along and fix what you can't. Always good to be thankful - I'm thankful for finding your blog :-)

Jen said...

I would have called my father too. He rescued us yesterday and drove us home when we were supposed to walk home from school in this snowstorm we're having.

Love the pictures of the 2 girls, they are so cute :)

Nothing like a car not starting to throw a wrench in your plans for the day!

Rachelle said...

Always a visual delight when I visit, Becky! Beautiful images of diverse subjects. If these are the people of your world, it is indeed a rich one! Happy holidays :)

Casey Freeland said...

When a father has children who remember the things he does as heroic deeds, no matter what they are, that's a happy man. For your dad it was the battery. For me yesterday it was getting the stuffed puppy out of the claw machine on my first try after my two youngest had spent a couple bucks on it. They won't ever forget it. I downplayed it, but it made me feel like a million bucks.

Cheers,

Casey
