Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today, we celebrated my dad's 69th birthday. He is approaching 70 way too quickly for my liking.

The kids and I headed over to my parents house to have dinner with them, and to celebrate with my dad. Upon seeing their beloved Papa, my kids started jumping up and down, and screaming, "Hi Papa! Hi Papa!" Dylan proudly gave his birthday present to him, and helped him unwrap it. After dinner, we sang to him. Since he's on a diet, I got to bring the cake home (my flabdomen is thanking you, Mom), but he still got to blow out the pillar candle...with Dylan's assistance, of course.

Several times, I overheard my dad say that it was his best birthday ever. When it comes down to it, birthdays are all about being surrounded by people who love you. In my dad's case, we adore him.

Happy Birthday, dad! Here's to many more!
