I think they are feeding each other cake! I love this picture of them. . . they look so happy together! I hope after being married that long that Erik and I still feel that way about each other. This picture really makes me miss them.Here is my dad dancing at his birthday bash!
Yesterday was my dads birthday! As most of you know my parents are on a mission in India. So it is time to pay a tribute to my dad. My dad is the most patient guy in the entire world. I can only remember maybe 1 or 2 times where he lost his temper, and that is really good when you have 4 daughters and 3 sons, but especially 4 daughters. He is kind and loving and so fun to be around. He has so much talent too. He can play the piano by ear, he plays the guitar. . .he writes music, and he has even written a book, yet to be published. He has a beautiful voice too. I remember when we were first learning to play basketball he would go to the church or to our front yard and shoot hoops with us. I am sure he used his patience then too. One story I remember is he was saving his money to buy his dream car. . .a 58 Chevy. . . (this is the way I remember it so if I am wrong sorry) Well he also wanted to take us on a nice vacation. So he cashed in his savings for the car and took our family on a nice long road trip. He has always made those kinds of sacrifices for his family. He gave up a dream to have memories for a life time. (mom got him the car a few years ago for Christmas) He never LET any of us win in anything. If we won. . . it was because we won! I think I got my competitive spirit from him. I like to win and I will try my hardest to do so. He taught us to always try and never to give up. I love you dad. . . I can't wait for you to come home! I hope you had an awesome birthday! From the pictures I saw it looks like you did. You are such an influence in so many peoples lives. People love you and love being around you. I know I do!
~HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!~
