i haven’t done a birthday post in forever,
but today my dad turns the big 50!
i think that warrants a birthday post.
happy 50th birthday dad!
thanks for introducing me to black licorice and star trek
and for coming to all my shows and driving me to all my lessons
and for all the fun daddy daughter dates and phone calls!
can’t wait to see you as a “grandpa” in about 10-ish weeks!
our baby is gonna be lucky…
i looooove you…

    He's so young!!!!! How awesome is it that he'll still have that energy to play with your youngin'. Happy Birthday to your dad!

  15. oh my god! daddy daughter dates! i remember those! is that a universal mormon thing? i never thought about it outside of the context of my family.

  16. @juliamarisa, i think they're common in and outside of mormon culture. i know a lot of friends who weren't raised mormon that loved their daddy daughter dates too!
