Washington, D.C.

I spent the last few days looking totally like a tourist. Notice the flashy looking hat? Luckily, cameras come in a size where I can put them in my front pocket, making me look a little more endowed than the average guy. I think Mae West would have to change her old line from "pickle in your pocket" to "camera in your pocket". And yes, Washington, D.C., I am happy to see you.
But, more than being a tourist the last few days, I got to be a dad. There isn't a more important job in the world. I still worry about her. I want to make sure she doesn't fall and scrape her knee. I want to help her with decisions, sometimes forgetting that she's and adult who can make her own.
Cortney, I know you read this, so I'll tell you and the world something you already know, that I'm more proud of you than you could ever imagine. This smile's for you.
