Happy Birthday to my dad tomorrow! He is turning 61, and I am taking Caleb to his birthday party tonight. (Justin is staying home because he pulled his back out yesterday and can't move too much yet).
These pictures were taken on my dad's 60th birthday last year.
They somehow never made it to the blog yet!
Some of the things I love most about my dad are that he is kind, soft-spoken, a good listener, a caring person, and consistently there when you need him. I try to sneak in a conversation with him when he answers the phone, even if I called to talk to my mom. And he doesn't get upset if I bug him with one of my problems when he's at work either!
A few of my favorite things I've done with my dad are:
"Dissy way, Daddy Way" when I was really, really small. Also walking on the ceiling and being a "big sack of sugar!!!" while flung over his shoulder.
Singing a duet with him in sacrament meeting when I was about 7 or 8.
Having him come to my track meets in highschool to cheer for me. He had to take off work early, which he doesn't normally do.
The way he has bonded with my husband, over their commonalities with their careers.
The way he loves my mom, and is a good example for how to love.
All of the blessings, love, and support he has given me these last few years.
I love you dad, from the bottom of my heart!
Hope your birthday is great!
