Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is the birthday of the most amazing man I have ever known. My dad always played with me while growing up and I have so many special memories of the time we spent together. We've also made lots of great memories during my adult years and he is one of my best friends.

Here we are during our scuba diving trip last summer. Only problem was that when we got to our destination, we found out a tropical storm was on the way. It rained the entire time and we never even put our bathing suits on. But, we still had a great time and I would do it all over again.

We went diving a few years ago and just had the best time. He also met me when I lived in the UK and we traveled to new places and had the best time. I love my dad!

My dad has helped to make me into the woman that I am today and has always stood by my side, believed in me, and has been there for me through both good times and bad. He is more amazing then he will ever know.

And I can't even begin to tell you what an amazing grandfather he is. My daughter's love their grandpa so much and he spends so much quality time with them both. He plays with them, takes them wherever he goes, takes them to dance, skating, swimming and soccer lessons, and just loves them and supports them so much. I feel so blessed to be able to give them such an amazing man.

Happy Birthday Dad! I could never thank you enough for all that you do for us all, for your love and friendship, and for being the great man you are to us all. We are so blessed to have you, and I am so proud of you in every way, as a father, grandfather, friend, and husband. I hope you know how much we all love you and I hope that this is a wonderful new year for you.

Chirp! (That's a little saying we have with one another.) Love you!
