Happy Father’s Day (Roozeh Pedar Mobarak!)

Happy Father’s Day (Roozeh Pedar Mobarak!)

Happy Father’s Day to my amazing dad who has always been there for us. Whether it was teaching us how to ride a bike, taking us on a hike, skiing with us, or providing a pep talk when teenage hormones were raging, he always showed and shows his love by spending time with us. I am grateful for every precious moment spent with my dad. I am so thankful for a father who always valued family time and invested every minute of his time either working for his family or being an active presence for his wife and children. He’s taught us to do our best and through his example he has demonstrated how important it is to help others. I love every bit of you Dad xoxoxoxoxoxo 

Happy Father's Day

I am lucky that my husband is also a wonderful family man and an amazing father to our kids who enjoys his time with his family. Here it is in Nikki’s words: (Also, if you wonder why I only put Nikki’s pieces up, it’s because she is the only literate child in the household (for now at least, um, I hope)).

Father's Day Present

My dad’s name is Masoud. He is 35 years old (at least it’s in the right decade). He is as big as my mom (Gee, thanks!). He has brown hair and green eyes. His favorite food is Zereshkpolo ba morgh (Chicken with Barberry Rice). His favorite color is blue. He likes to go to play with us. For fun he likes to play with him(self) (well, this is going down in history as the best Father’s Day card ever!). My favorite thing to do with my dad is spend time (with) him. I love my dad because he is the best in the world.
