This is my favorite picture of me and my Dad. He owned a camera store at the time so he always was taking photos of us. Some of my favorite memories of him are how he loved taking my brothers and sister and I camping every summer in Lil Loafer our tiny trailer. Also how he taught us sailing in The Seven C's our little sabot (there was seven in our family and our last name was Chapman, hence the name). One of the most important lessons he taught me that I have passed down to my children is that life is tough sometimes and you have to hang in there and as he put it " Bite the Bullet". I'm so thankful to him for giving me these wonderful memories of time spent together as a family.
