A big birthday for my Dad today! Born the day before Halloween, he's a trickster all right. At a young age my heart would beat faster just walking up the stairs because I never knew if he might jump out and scare me. One night when Brian and I were first dating (I was in college and home for the holidays) Dad scared both of us by jumping out from behind the door when I was coming home late at night. There is an argument as to whether Brian pushed me to get out of the way, but I'm sure that's not what happened, hehe.
He got up and made breakfast for me and my brother every morning and packed our lunches. Dad was the official chauffeur of the family, driving me and my friends here and there. He taught, so in the summer we took long road trips across the country. He loves road trips, and is currently on a road trip to Florida, where my parents live in the winter. So he's spending his 70th birthday doing one of his favorite things: driving.
He's Bop to the littles, the best Dad to me, and Brian loves having a father in law that can direct him on woodworking and other manly endeavors like fishing and the best cars on the market.
Happy birthday, Dad! I hope you have the best birthday ever. 70 years young!
We love you! xoxo
