It was my dad’s birthday on Saturday and he and my mom decided to treat us all to the U of U men’s basketball game for the afternoon to celebrate. It’s one of those BIG birthdays – but I won’t tell anyone how old you are, Dad. 🙂
Without a doubt, my dad’s favorite thing to do is be with his family. He loves having his kids and grandkids all around (as noisy as we may be) and he never hesitates to tell any of us how much he loves us. It’s also an honor to be known as his daughter; people already think highly of me because of who he is and that has been a great blessing and privilege in my life.
But if you had to ask most people what they know about him, what his defining characteristics are, they would probably say that he is one funny guy. He always has a joke, a smile, a laugh to share with you. And most often they are jokes we kids have heard over and over…and over. He’s gets a kick out of it and we get a kick out of him.
We love you, Dad!
