My dad gave our family three of the greatest gifts I can imagine.
1) He loved our mom like crazy. He hugged her in front of us. He kissed her. He told her he loved her all the time.
2) He loved us like crazy. He hugged us. He kissed us. He told us he loved us all the time.
3) He took pictures like crazy. He documented our precious childhood in photos, and I think this is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child.
Thank you dad for loving mom like crazy, for loving us like crazy, and for taking pictures of it all. I love you like crazy.
This weekend while I was in Florida, I dug around in a few of MANY boxes of pictures and found a few that I loved. Today I scanned them and had them printed larger. I just adore these photos.

At our favorite beach spot where we vacationed with cousins: Ocean Club North
One of many photo shoots in our back yard. We LOVED that clowny doll.
At the beach. Love the tan faces:
Another back-yard photo shoot:
In our front driveway. I love the white dresses:
Krisan trying to run away. p.s. is she not the cutest child EVER? I love that hair.
Dad coming home from work in the cougar. We hated that car and eventually made him get rid of it because we complained so much and wouldn’t ride with him. I feel awful about it now!
My sweet sister. I just love the look on her face:
In a park nearby:
Dad with his girls:
Sitting with happy-dog. Probably for a Christmas card.
I wasn’t thrilled about it. But check out Krisan’s grin:
