My dad is amazing. I know you all think your dad is amazing, but really, after you see this project, you’ll see how amazing my dad is. I always knew I got my craftiness from my mother, but after I saw the end result of this project, I started to reconsider my origins.
Usually I welcome any and all family talents. To be honest, I’ve searched high and low for anything that I could claim my family did better than any other family. I came up pretty much empty handed, unless you consider a few unflattering things. My family definitely is louder than most families, they drink more, and they argue more. Seriously. My uncles didn’t speak to my aunts for decades (and vice versa). I have cousins I barely know.
But my family also makes the most amazing candy (my grandma’s toffee recipe is TOP SECRET). They have more fun than most families. They sincerely care about each other (well usually, unless you’re on someone’s bad side). They might not have a lot of wealth, but they’re genuinely good people. I consider myself lucky to come from them, good or bad.
That being said, my parents are both very creative people in their own ways. My mom drew the blue prints for her house that my step-dad built for her. Himself. If you give my mom a few color ideas, she’ll have your house looking like it stepped out of a show on HGTV. My dad is handy. He can pick up a hammer and create anything. And that’s what he did. He picked up a hammer and built the most amazing fire pit I’ve ever seen. I’ve really got to step up my game in the creative department after this.Note: My dad did follow instructions. I don’t know which ones exactly, but you can find some similar here.
