172 - Daddy

This is the daddy I celebrated yesterday. I waited until today to post him because he is also going into surgery this morning to repair a broken wrist. He has been an amazing father. Here is just one of thousands of examples I could give you to illustrate his awesomeness.

For my 16th birthday he was out of town on very important business. I was so upset because I had looked forward to this birthday for so long for so many reasons. The only thing I wanted for my sweet sixteen was to go to a fancy restaurant with my daddy, but he was not going to be there. Much to my surprise, when I got home that day from school, my mom had a new dress laid out and told me to get dressed. My Daddy had rearranged his meetings and was on a plane so he could take me out. We went to a fancy restaurant, a movie, and then he dropped me off at home so he could get back on a plane to make his early morning meeting.

This is my Daddy. He showed me everything I wanted in a husband. He is everything I want my boys to be.


  1. I loved that story! What an awesome dad!

  2. OMG that's awesome!!! Daddy's are the bestestestestest (yes it's a word) in the whole wide world!

  3. No wonder you married such a great guy - you knew what "the best" was like. :)
