Life in Celebration

One of the reasons that I love my dad



He’s pretty amazing if I do say so myself!

Dad celebrated his 56th birthday this week.

*(My mom celebrated her 56th birthday on July 17th, but I was in the middle of unpacking so I didn’t get a chance to write her a birthday message. But I didn’t want to leave her out of the fun!)*

 I didn’t get to celebrate with him but my brother sent some great pictures of the party.

True to form, my dad wanted a low key “party”.

Family tradition dictates that the birthday boy/girl gets to pick a restaurant or dinner for his/her party.

He insisted on grilled cheese and tomato soup for his birthday dinner.

My brother whipped up a grilled cheese bar full of different types of cheeses and toppings.

There were even two kinds of soup! Yum!

Doesn’t that pie look delicious?

Yes, Dad, Old Guys Rule!

My dad is a huge source of strength and courage.

We almost lost him in a motorcycle accident in 2001.

In the last ten years, my dad has built his life around his faith and his family.

I’m so proud to be his daughter!

I love you, Dad Smile
