Kids Corner | June 2014

KC-ari-dadThe month of June, for me, is all about Father’s Day. Whether you are going to be celebrating with your dad, or just calling him, make sure your father knows how great he is!

I love spending time with my dad. Usually, I’m not with my dad on Father’s Day, so we have to celebrate it a little late, but it’s better late than never, right? Sometimes we go to a baseball game to see the Minnesota Twins play at their home stadium. I love going to baseball games. Even if I really don’t understand what’s going on in the game, I love letting my dad try to explain it to me. Another thing my dad and I like to do is going bowling. When I was little, I used to hate bowling. But now, I actually kind of love it! My dad takes the game a little too serious and gets way too competitive. But, instead of getting grumpy about it, I have fun with it; I learned to bowl against him! One Father’s Day, we went to Valley Fair, an amusement park in Minnesota. We rode roller coasters all day. It was probably one of the best Father’s Day ever! Having time with my dad is very special to me.

This Father’s Day, make sure to give your dad a little shout out to let him know how much you love him—especially if you can’t celebrate the day together!

Have a great month, and Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
