Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday. 
(I already missed my mom's...sorry Mom.)

Here's my dad and me in when I was around two.

My dad always the outdoor man, took us canoeing (sp?) often when we lived in Minnesota.  We'd go fishing, hiking, etc.  I remember watching shot his powder gun.  Whenever I smell gun powder (and old spice, also fresh cut wood) I think of my dad.
You can still find my dad outside, doing something, anything.
When I see old cars I still think of my dad.  On my dad's weekends we'd also do a lot of talking.  I liked old cars, we'd talk about that.  We'd talk about what I wanted to be when I grew up. 
My dad can pack anything into anything and make it fit just right.
He and my step-mom have always opened their house to anyone.
Here he is with all of us...he has 6 kids, three kid-in-laws, and seven grandkids.
Happy Birthday Dad!

Those are some great photos!!

I think I've decided to just stick with the white background because I like the stretched column for posts and larger photos. However, your background is awesome, so I still need to figure it out!! For some reason, I couldn't get the background on. I think some codes were changed when my friend designed my blog, so the cutestblog directions aren't applying. I think I'm going to break down and ask my hubby for help (and squash my pride)!! My sig won't change and I want a hand written font for my post titles.

Any suggestions?
