I See... The Best Father's Day Ever?

The Mormon Third Eye traditionally shares remarkable assessments of events as they occur. However, in the spirit of spiritual innovation, it's time for the MTE faithful to provide their assessment of what makes a memorable Father's Day. Below are actual events that occurred this latest MTE Father's Day weekend. I'm looking for answers to the following question: could this be the best Father's Day ever?

This weekend, I:

took two of my five favorite graduating seminary seniors to Cracker Barrel for lunch before they leave on their missions;

personally watched one of my five favorite graduating seminary seniors open his call to the Ecuador Guayaquil mission;

during priesthood meeting, recited my memorized version of the Proclamation to the World on the Family;

witnessed my Aaronic Priesthood home teaching companion organize and implement home sacrament ordinance services for two ailing elderly ward members (I was just the driver);

enjoyed nursing my wife's recovery from a lingering cold, which included my solo temple shift on Saturday and church services on Sunday;

welcomed my son and daughter's valiant efforts to resurrect their childhood memories of bed time Captain Underpants reading adventures with a gift certificate for a family adventure to the new movie by the same name;

and started making plans to read the greatest book ever written for Grandpas, “How to Babysit a Grandpa,” awarded to me by my Grandma wife.

Does Father's Day get any better than this? I think not!
