Happy 60th Birthday Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday. The big 6-0!! He's lived out in Wyoming since 1995 so I don't see him very much. I realized when I went looking for a pic of him for the blog that I don't have any digitals. So I swiped one from my wedding album. I thought about burning that thing in a tribute to my new found freedom once my divorce was final but decided against it. I digress, back to the topic at hand. My dad's birthday! These pics were taken May 1999 when I was a little thinner (okay a lot) and my dad was a little less gray. You can see where I get my big shnozz from.
Yeah, thanks for that Dad. LOL!
Awww... how sweet! Isn't this the cutest pic? I'm the oldest of my dad's five children. There's me, Carla and Travis. (Thanks to the blogs he can now keep up with us much better and gets to see pics, too. Way better than long distance phone calls.) Then my dad re-married and had a second set. Ryan is 19 and Lauren is 18. Both will be out of the house in the fall and off to college. My dad will finally be an empty nester. What to do with all that freedom? Maybe he might think about moving back here now... hint hint. Just a thought, Dad. :)

Happy 60th Birthday Dad!

I love you and I hope you enjoy your day! Wish we could be there to celebrate it with you.

Those are great photos of you and your dad. :-) Lovely wedding dress and beautiful bride too.. even if it is 'from the past'. Still beautiful.:-) My dd and Stine (exchange daughter) had my dress out a few weeks ago. I hadn't had it out of the box since I had it put in there. They were amazed and actually liked it (which surprized me)

Happy 60th to your father. I hope he has a GREAT one.

I was 16, and my mom had gone shopping. When I looked at the new dresses she'd bought, the label said something like "Maternity Modes". Talk about shock!!! My MOM was having another baby!!! OMG!!!!! But he turned out to be a really cute little thing, and I still refer to him as my little brother. Happy 60th, Charlie.

I'm geographically the closest relative to your Dad and yet, here I am catching up with him through your blog! Thank God for the Internet! Happy 60th Birthday, Uncle Charlie!

Happy Birthday to your father! He looks very handsome in that picture.

Krista, you do not look like you carry more weight than you should. I think you look just fine!

Pretty wedding pictures and pretty wedding dress. I know what you mean about burning things. I burned most of the love letters from 2 boyfriends in high school and college and regret it. No matter how the relationships ended I should've kept them for sentimental reasons.

Happy birthday to your dad! He's only about 40 days older than my dad!!! My dad will turn the big 6-0 on the 2nd of August.

Susie said...

Ohhh! Your dad looks like a teddy bear you could just fall in his arms and always feel safe.

Soooo cute!

I didn't realize your dad's birthday was the same week as my dad's (Dad's is the 17th)! Wonder if they had to celebrate them together when they were younger? Oh, probably not since there is a 13 year age difference!! Hope Charlie(or Charles, as Grandma would say) had a wonderful birthday! Notice how I've never called him Uncle Charlie? Just kinda hard to do when he's only 10 years older than ME!!! Heck, my HUSBAND is almost as old as Charlie...next year will be the big 6-0 for him. Again, Happy Birthday to Charlie!!!
