{A Letter From My Dad}

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Sweet Badasses,

Tonight you will obtain the vehicle that will transport you across the state of Missouri on the world's longest river race, 340 miles of beauty, friendship, hardship, endurance, courage, tears, blisters & duct tape, weeping husbands, and memories to last you the rest of your lives, all for a baby that you have not yet met. Now that is AMAZING! This adventure has given me more joy than you can ever imagine and will last me the rest of my life. Thank you for being who you are, for your husbands, and for being such role models. Just remember all those people that put their names on the river rocket will be paddling across the Mighty Missouri along there with you. They will all be there to keep you company and watch over you as the Gentlemen and women above.

Have an exciting day!
Papa

PS, So far 29 miles of our race have been sponsored! Only 311 more to go! Let us know if you or your business would be interested in donating money towards the cost of our paddles and other items on the long list of gear we're trying to track down. We'd be happy to include your name and company logo on our boat when it gets professionally wrapped with all of our official race sponsors.

Paddling for Parenthood,
Em & Em

How beautiful to come from your Papa:) And yes, I agree, the fact that he called you "badasses" did add to it's pure splendor!
