A Tribute to my Dad!



My Dad with Simon over 4th of July
My Dad had his 58 birthday yesterday and I wanted to write a blog in honor of him.  A little about my dad, he is one of the most fun and wonderful men in my life.  I was never embarrassed by him when I was in high school.  I was alway very anxious to give him a big hug whenever I saw him and it didn't matter where we were.  He was always wanting to do fun things with us, like take my sisters and I to Las Vegas to go shopping (just so you know I get my love of bags from my dad, his just have a manly twist to them).  He would always get something for us girls for Valentines Day, most of the time it was a smaller version of what he got my mom.  My favorite memory of him would be driving with him in his little truck and listening to Bob Segger.  He would turn the music up so loud and sing and dance, maybe that is where I get it from.  My dad was always active in my life, he deeply cared about the choices that I made and I could never and will never let him down or disappoint him.  Another thing I love about my dad is how he loves my mom, and shows it.  Every time I have flown my mom up to visit me she spends the whole time finding little love notes in her things, one time we counted about 30 different notes (in her shoes, stuffed in socks and things like that) it is so cute.  He is so good at loving my mom that it gave me the confidence to want that for myself and not accept anything less, and I did get that.  My dad honors his priesthood and that in and of itself is one of the greatest things he has done for me.  I knew I could always turn to my dad for anything and he would listen to me and love me and for that I am so grateful.  I love you daddy happy #58.
