Happy Birthday Dad!
at my older brother's wedding, drinking iced tea having a good ol' time!
Yesterday, October 16th, was my Dad's birthday.
He is 57 years young.
What a whirlwind of a year for him and my whole family! A lot has happened for the good.
My Dad was always involved in my childhood and teenage years. He takes us on the best vacations, Death Valley in the winter and Tahoe, Mammoth, Eureka in the Summer.
He loves surprises, especially at Christmas. He still, to this day, can't sleep Christmas Eve; he gets so antsy and can't wait to see our faces when we open gifts from him.
My Dad loves practical jokes. When we were kids, he told us about how he used to walk in his sleep. That night after my parents went to bed, my siblings and I were watching a movie. Next thing we knew, my dad was walking in the room, eyes glazed over and just walking around. We jumped up and got our mom, "Dad's sleep walking!". We carefully guided him down the hall back to his room while we whispered at each other not to wake him up. He got to the end of the hall and started doing a jigg. LOL! Yeah, we fell for it.
These are just a few things I love about him! Happy Belated Birthday Dad!
