happy 60th birthday to my dad!!
today was my dad's birthday and it was
such a big one...we really wish we could
have spent it with him. in a perfect world
(where i could afford it) i would have liked
to have flown us all to some island retreat
where we lounged by the sea and ate big
seafood meals and drank exotic umbrella
drinks and chatting about the past 60 years...
maybe when you turn 65 or 70 dad:)
my dad actually did exactly what he wanted
today. he rode his bike 164 miles!!!!!!!!!
i'm not even kidding. he is crazy! how did
he do that!!?? it took him like 6 hours on his
exercise bike. i'm in awe. he was so
excited and i'm really glad he did something
special and super meaningful on his big day!
so happy, happy birthday dad!
the man who remembers every date in the
history of life (a tough opponent in trivial pursuit),
who makes a mean deviled egg,
who will talk to anyone and genuinely
be interested, who loves leonard cohen and
all sorts of other music,
who has authored 2 books on the genealogy of
who is the best pappy around according
to 3 grandsons named rowen, jake & henry...
and who is a great dad that has
always been there...
love you! xox...jenn
