My Dad!

Big strong arms,
hold my frail arms,
Big brown eyes,
look into my blue eyes,
His kind heart,
reminds my heart,
how much he loves me...
My Dad!

My dad is amazing! I don't really know why I am writing about him, but I decided I should dedicate this post to him! Little does he know I am writing about him and all his little ways. Little ways... Oh my do I have some blackmail on this dude! I won't embarrass him too much. :) One of my favorite memories up to date of him, was on the way to school one morning. We were all pretty tired and not looking forward to a day of school. So my dad being the way he is turned on the song, "I like big butts and I can not lie!" He cranked up the music, rolled down the windows, and danced! I mean he flat out danced! Oh my gosh... Me and my sisters were dying laughing! He definitely woke us up that morning! I promise you I would randomly laugh that whole week thinking about it!
Oh dad, sometimes you embarrass me so much... but I still will always love you!

(next time you ground me.. remember this post :) ha jk!)

I love your poem about Dad.

When I was dating your Dad one of the things I most liked about him is that he seemed like he'd be a good father.

It makes me smile to see how that has come about.

Hi Hope,

I'm actually popping over after having read your mom's blog today. I googled and found your blog. What a neat site and what a great post about your dad. Both you and your dad will treasure it always. I bet he smiles randomly all week as he thinks about this post and how much you openly show that you love him. And, as for me, I'll laugh all week too - thinking about how your dad (or any dad for that matter) would flat out dance to that song! Too funny!!!

Okay girl, make me teary eyed...don't ever lose the respect you have for this man. So important as you get older. I'm sure this made his heart swell up.
You are such a blessing to my little girl, Alivia and I thank you for that. :)
