Dad's 70th Birthday Party!

With my sister getting married 2 days after his birthday, my dad was not expecting to get any kind of celebration for his big 7-0. But, we managed to surprise him with a big 70th birthday party!

the big entrance! 
Jeremy and Autumn were the main organizers of the event--assigning food, decorating (including making the most awesome center pieces), and making the program of events.

How cool is that drum set? Autumn made it!!

Everyone brought curry, of course.

All 9 of his kids and my mom gave Dad "toasts" sharing funny memories and why we love him. I also made all of the toasts (including toasts from his sisters and the in-laws) into a book with pictures. It was really special!

The grandkids then sang, "All You Need is Love" and then Dad sang, "In My Life."

All the grandkids minus Audrey and Evie (who were in Spain, where they live).
It was such a happy event, especially getting to be with my whole family (minus Tom, Audrey, and Evie) to celebrate my Dad.

All 9 of us! 

Daddy, you truly are my hero. You have shaped me into the person I am today. I am so grateful for your patience with me, for your example and your testimony, for all that you've taught me about the world, and for your LOVE for me, all of your kids, your grandkids, and especially my Mama.

Happy 70th Birthday Daddy!
