My dad did the coolest thing for Jo. A little context first though:
Jo is in to pirates. Baylor is not necessarily in to parrots, but he is a natural born sidekick due to his birth order.
When Jo got her Halloween costume, she faithfully stayed in character for 72 hours before I forced her out of it. I was worried she was training one eye to be lazy and one eye to be super-human by wearing that eyepatch.
Inside the treasure chest was money, pirate dentures, jewels, a gun, a priceless golden apple, candy (oddly well preserved after centuries of being buried an inch under ground in the exotic and unlikely land of Wilsonville, OR) and lots of dubloons. This is a memory that Jo will have all her life.
Above is my favorite picture (you can see the map on the ground)- I love how their heads are together and he's holding her tin jewelry case steady for her. Individually, these are two of my favorite people in the world, and I love that they have such a special relationship.
Dad, THANK YOU for taking so much delight in my daughter.
And Jo, THANK YOU for taking so much delight in my Dad.
