Speaking of Pa Pa ...

Yesterday was my Dad's 69th Birthday!!!
Of course we had to celebrate...
There is just nobody like my dad! He is funny,
sweet, opinionated, talkative, old fashioned,
lovable, and supportive. This man has stuck
by my sisters and me through anything and
everything. Growing up, I felt like
everything would always be okay...
it was my DAD who gave me that security!
(well, maybe his wife of 50 years helped, too...)
As we always do, my family met up at
Fuddruckers (the only restaurant that lets us
be wild & crazy) to celebrate our Dad and PA PA...My parents went on a trip to Europe in October.
They couldn't wait to tell us this joke they heard
on the trip from their tour guide. Both of them
were telling the joke...but as they got to the punch
line, BOTH of them forgot it!!!
(This was almost as funny as them telling us about playing
the Newlywed game on a cruise they went on...
one of the questions asked of them was
"Where is the weirdest place you ever made WHOOPY?!?")

Nice try, Dad...

hee hee...
We love our Daddy...
PaPa, Grandmother and their six Grandchildren
(also if you look closely John, Paul, Ringo & George)...
My dad is an amazing, funny, loving man.
He has been steadfast in loving his family.
He has always been the first one to stick up for us
and be there for us.
I couldn't love him more.
I've always felt like the apple of his eye
through all ages and stages...
Happy 69th Birthday, Dad!
We love LOVE love you!!!
