Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Wednesday, July 27, 2016
Today is my Daddy's 90th birthday!!  WOOT WOOT!!  
To look at him you would never EVER guess he was that old, and we are extremely grateful for him in so many ways.
He loves to fish and hunt - yes! still!  In fact, this year he got a turkey on his very first day of turkey season!  I love seeing him grin from ear to ear when he shows us the fan of feathers.  And his blue gill dinners are to die for!! His deer hunting days are over because he cannot walk quite as far as required to hunt deer because of his torn achilles tendon.
My daddy served his country faithfully in WW2.  He was stationed on a mine-layer ship in the navy. Oh, the things this man has seen and experienced.  Check out the cool cane that someone made especially for him for serving our country.  It has his name and other details of the war specific to where he served.  A wonderful keepsake for sure!
My daddy raised 4 daughters and one "son" - my uncle (my mom's brother) after my Grandma passed away when my uncle was only 12 years old.
This is my mom looking at a photo of my daddy.  She loves remembering the days when she had a navy man for her boyfriend. (his photo is the top one).  This year they will celebrate 70 years of Marriage!  Not too many people can lay claim to this amazing example of love.
Being the youngest of these four girls I will say with all my heart that he NEVER - EVER treated me like he wished I had been a boy - even though everyone else thought he should have a boy.
My daddy is my husbands best friend.  Get them two together and all you hear is laughter. So sweet to my ears because he was a pretty serious dude when he was raising us.
Because of my dad's love of hunting, I made this card for him for his birthday.
We will celebrate in a few days so I will share with you the cake I made for him at that time. (IF I can find the cake pan amongst all the packing)
