Daddy's got a belly....

Postby sgladbach » Tue Jul 12, 2011 10:46 pm

............ but his girl is beautiful!!

Alise and I on Blanca before heading to Ellingwood. She'll be 12 in 3 weeks. That leaves a whole year before she hates Daddy, right?

Steve,
if you still have her at almost 12, I think you're relatively safe. Great shot and you both look like you are enjoying your climbing partner.

Great shot, SG. I'm so impressed by her peak list so far! Can she catch her dad someday?

Really nice shot, Steve! I'm glad to hear that Alise has been enjoying getting out with you on these trips. I think you and Scott have the right idea. Tell her I said good job!

Wow! Your daughter is quite the climber! I am envious!

Very nice!

As for the age thing.... I certainly am no expert but I do have a 12 year old daughter... what 1 person told me is to be the man you want your daughter to marry. I try....

I've heard through the grapevine that you are a pretty stand up guy Steve. It looks like you're a good daddy too taking your daughter out into the mountains. AND she looks like she had fun. Thanks for sharing.

As a dad of two daughters myself, nice going, sir. It was a pleasure to visit with you briefly on the trail to Humboldt a few weeks back, when it seems you and Cooper were introducing another small bunch of young folks to the joys of the mountains. Happy trails always.

That is awesome. I can't wait to take my girl up... but since she's just 9 months it will be a little while!
