Did you know? The Father's Day Edition

Did you know that there are 67.8 million dads in the United States?

Did you know that Ron (Dad Egbert) was a die-hard Ute fan?

Did you know that there are 23,754 sporting goods stores, 14,193 hardware stores, and only 8,610 men's clothing stores in this country? Do you think you got your dad the right thing?

Did you know that Dad Reilley loves wave runners, 4 wheelers and dirt bikes? Anything with a motor really. And anything that can get him dirty and move him fast at the same time.

Did you know that there are 147,000 stay-at-home Dad's floating around out there? They're probably not really floating....although I've seen more than one dad suck the helium out of his kid's balloon...... Being Mr. Mom just gets cooler and cooler.

Did you know that Dad Fugal can grow just about anything in his vegetable garden (aka The Farm) even in this stupid Utah "soil"? I don't know if he's ever had a crop fail.

Did you know that a measly 72% of Americans plan to celebrate or acknowledge Father's Day this year? The number seems incredibly low to me....sortof sad. So, I guess what I'm sayin' is that if you're blowing it off you should probably change your mind and celebrate it.

Did you know that Josh plays the piano? Beautifully actually. And he can play out of his head. He's a bit out of practice since we don't have a piano in our home, but when we go to any relative's home with a piano he loves to sit down and play. When we grow up he promises to play me lullabies.

Did you know that Josh becoming a father is probably the greatest thing ever to happen to him? I think it makes him happier than anything else in the whole wide world.


  1. Did you know that Amy plays the piano...beautifully, as well!! What a team!!

  2. True. Amy is expert a la piano!

    And happy Father's Day! I think we did better on gifts for father's day than we did for Randy's b-day. Yay for dads!

  3. Happy Father's Day!

    Did you know our ward was lame and only had the 9-11 yr old boys sing a song during Sacrament and then they didn't even give the men a treat...Very sad...I think my ward was part of that 25% that didn't celebrate. Hahaha!
