So dad has been gone for 4 days 3 nights as he was participating in the annual LEU ride from VA Beach to DC. The organization raised $260,000 which helps the family's who lost a loved one in the line of duty last year.
Mom went with Dad today to DC as he was going to meet the family of the late officer dad rode in honor of: Jamie Zapata from TX. It was very emotional and mom said she teared up when the mom and dad hugged our daddy. Jamie had 4 brothers, 1 sister and left behind a fiancee who was also there.
I'm proud of my daddy for completing the 257 or so miles in 3 days on his bike! Cops from all over the USA participated in this (about 300 riders).
I'm glad he's home but not glad that I have to give up his side of the bed...
oh wow what a pawsome thing your dad did my mom knows how rewarding it must have been she walks 39 miles in the avon walk for breast cancer, WE are always so glad when she finally comes back home.
Glad your dad is home hope your mom had a happy mother's day.
