This weekend, be sure to tell your dad you love him. Give him a big bear hug. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say he'd probably appreciate spending time with you - the family - those he cares about the most. Go grab your pop and join us for a fun-filled weekend. Or visit our website at www.irvingtexas.com for more area events.
