Happy Birthday...

To my dad :)
A truly amazing man.
A man who, by simply loving us kids showed us what a dad really should be.
A man who simply by loving our mum, demonstrated to his girls what a good husband looks like, and to his sons how a good husband is.
A true GENTLEman.
Growing up, he really set us girls expectations high for our future husbands. They say a girl marries a man just like her father, and truly if we did, then we can't go wrong.
And as a Poppy, he does nothing but adore my kids. Seriously, I doubt they could ever do anything wrong in their Poppy's eyes.
It is SO nice to know that there is someone in the world who will ALWAYS be on your side. No matter what. My dad gives us that. So this weekend, we are dusting off our coconut bikinis, and our grass skirts to celebrate HAWAIIAN style my dad's 60th birthday..so if things are a little quiet round these parts over the next few days you'll know why...
One (or 4) too many fancy alcoholic beverages with pretty umbrellas....


And this pic. Cause it makes me laugh. My dad, giving birth to a 5 year old...HAH!
