Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad's 75th birthday!! I have learned so much from him over the years and am very proud. He is a wonderful grandpa to Gracie and even learned how to change her diapers, even though he hadn't changed one in over 30 years. She always has so much fun when we go to the stores with him or he babysits. Below, is a picture of him from when he was younger. I am not sure of his exact age in the picture but looking at it, I can see so much of myself in him when I was around his age. I think we have the same eyes and lips.

I feel very thankful for my dad and am grateful that he lives so close to us. He is an honest and compassionate man and I love him very much! I hope you have a wonderful birthday dad, with many more to come.
