Father's Day: Who Knew This Young Boy Would Grow Up to Be The Best Father Ever?

 I've actually come back in to edit this a little bit because Mr. T saw this picture and told me that when he wore this costume that his mom, Orlando Grandma, made, he WAS Superman. For him it was the coolest costume around, didn't even notice it was homemade.  He was actually concerned that his "secret identity" might be revealed. Isn't it great the imagination kids have and how they believe. We lose that ability as we all grow older. Let's get that back - the ability to believe that anything is possible...


And how funny that about 45 years after this picture was taken of him in his Superman costume, that he would be going to yet another Superman movie with these two tomorrow:

"The Great Zacharini" and his little sis The Maven, aka "Cool Clown".

Yep, we like our costumes in this family...
...and Superman!

And we have our very own Superman right here, in Mr. T.  He always saves the day, always does the right thing, may not be faster than a speeding bullet, but he's good at battling the LA traffic.  That certainly qualifies him as a Superman!

And Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there, and the ones who are no longer with us.

Happy Father's Day to Mr.T!
Love that Superman costume. Don't you just love seeing those pictures of your kids in their costumes?! They're great. I have tons of those myself.
...and hey! My oldest son saw it (Man of Steel) last night said it was great. The youngest son called today and is taking us to see it on Sunday!

Thanks everyone for the Father's Day wishes. I still remember how excited I was to be Superman that Halloween. Perhaps you can tell by my pose.

These pictures are great...yes it is so true, how children have this wonderful ability to believe.
I have to say that the picture of your children in the small little (cramped)kitchen brought memories to me of our little,(cramped)kitchen, and all the fun it was when my son was small too.Halloween was always just the most fun!!
Happy Fathers day to Mr. T...if a little late. :),

You are blessed with supermen in your family, and I must tell you, your cat is so cute and I like the way her markings match your dogs.

Just got Home and read the FD blog. It touched my heart. In those days it was not easy to find already made costumes so I did what I could to please My Superman who taday is known as OUR SUPER MAN.
