My first love

Today is my father type's birthday.  The first birthday in our empty nest.

My father type is such a good father.


(Can you believe this is the only picture I can find of the three of us at the girl child's graduation?)

Always so proud of his kids.



Always.


Happy birthday, dearest father type.  Time to enjoy our empty nest.

Awesome pictures - all smiles on graduation day. I think your Jane is coming along great - love the tree. It looks to me like you are going quickly, but I think you are a much faster stitcher than me. Happy Bday to your first love! He hasn't changed much since the pic with little kiddos. Hope your weekend is marvelous!
