Father’s Day

This year for father’s day…Matt had a brilliant idea of what to get his dad.  He works with the guy, so talks to him quite often and knows him pretty well.  Apparently Steve (that’s his dad) had been talking about a unicycle (yes, a unicycle) quite a lot recently.  He was reminiscing about the days when he had one, and wishing he could get back on one.

Well, if that’s not a challenge I don’t know what is.

So can you guess what we got him for father’s day?

Yep, his very own unicycle.

And I am telling you what he wasn’t kidding.  It took him all of 30 seconds and he was riding it up and down the street like he’d been doing it his whole life.  It had been over 20 years since he had even tried to ride one!  I was amazed.

So amazed in fact that I decided to take a video of him riding it.  Enjoy. :)

Not bad for a 50-something grandpa who hadn’t so much as looked at a unicycle in 20 years, huh.
