Eye Surgery

(This is not Dad, this is just some guy getting eye surgery!)

Today Dad went in for eye surgery. He is out of the hospital and recovering in a hotel. It's like surgery and a resort vacation all in one. I wonder if he gets to wear the patch over his eye again? I remember when we were kids, in the early 80's, dad had a cornea transplant. He wore a patch over his eye for months. It would have been much cooler if he would have drawn an eye on the patch or wrote something funny on it. Maybe he can do that this time.

Get well soon Dad!

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day lands on June 21st this year. The Robles 10 kids got together and created something extra special for Dad to commemorate this special day. We created a book with thoughts about how we feel about Dad, funny things we remember about Dad, and pictures of us with him. The book turned out amazing.

Since the majority of us were in Kingman on Mother's Day weekend, we gave dad his special gift then so we could enjoy it too. We all sat around and listened to Dad read it.
Notice its all of the girls crowding around Dad to get a look at the book. Where are all of the boys??? j/k

By creating the book we all started to remember funny stories about Dad. Many of the stories were about tricks dad used to play on us kids. For example, Dad would pass a quarter from one of my ears (Haley's) to the other. Sometimes it would even come out my nose. It was amazing! So one day when I was 3 or 4 years old, I stuck a round sticker up my nose as far as I could get it to go and it never would come out of my ear! Mom had to take me to the doctor to get it out. Julie's story is 10 times better than mine! Dad played the same trick on Julie. However, when he put the quarter in her ear, he told her he left it in there. She left the room and spent the next 15 minutes trying to get the quarter out of her ear. Finally, in tears, she came back to Dad and begged him to take it out. He complied and took the quarter out. Amy had a ton of funny stories too. We really should put all the crazy and humorous stories together into a book. I bet there are hundreds of other funny stories that we could write down and wet our pants laughing about them.

Thanks Dad for all of the hysterical memories! Have a wonderful Father's Day! We Love You!
