Today is my dear old dad's birthday! He's an easy guy to love and celebrate for because he is so kind, sincere, and loving to his family. I have really fond memories of daddy daughter dates when I was little. In a house of all boys, my dad tried to use those opportunities to make me feel really special. He would drive me to ballet practice and then take me out to get a McDonalds happy meal. He was always so nice to my friends and everyone who meets him likes him. I feel so lucky to be his daughter and to live so close by. He became fast friends with Nick and that has meant so much to me. You won't meet a harder worker or someone who loves his family more. Happy Birthday Dad - I love you!
