Today is my daddy's birthday.
That's right...I call him daddy.
I am, and always will be, a daddy's girl.
(Daddy and me at my wedding...he attempted to waltz, but I'm not very good!)
I think my dad is one of the greatest men ever.
My dad could definitely beat up your dad.
But he probably wouldn't...
not unless he had a really good reason.
See, my dad is a complex individual.
Physically, he's a big guy.
He was once described as a "tall, powerful man"...and he totally is.
But my daddy is really just a big teddy bear.
I think this has something to do with raising 5 daughters...
(My dad...and Summer, the "special" sister. This photo will be displayed at her wedding...should someone ever marry her.)
One thing is for sure...raising 5 daughters has made my dad a VERY patient man.
He puts up with a lot of craziness from all us girls
Definitely take note of his facial expressions in most of these pictures...
he's very tolerant!
(Daddy carrying Taylor...she was plum-tuckered out!)
(Disclaimer...that bag held his Father's Day gift from Summer...a Diamondbacks jersey...not lingerie!)
My daddy has adapted to his life in an "estrogen ocean"
He takes us camping...we ride 4-wheelers and jet skis...we even shoot guns.
Now that 3 of his daughters have gotten married, there are some boys to help even things out.
But daddy will always have a soft spot for his "Arlon's Darlins!"
(My absolute favorite picture of my parents!)
(He's one hip daddy-o)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!
I LOVE YOU LOTS!
