Happy Birthday, Dad Dylan.

I know. I know. It’s been awhile…
I know. I know. I’m probably the worst blogger in the history of bloggers..

Where have I been? I’ll explain later. I know, you’re dying to know right. Or, more likely, you’ve forgotten this blog ever even existed. And, more importantly, you’re probably wondering who the hell I am and why you ever followed it in the first place.

Well, I’ll explain all that later. I have more pertinent matters to attend too. It’s my Father’s Birthday. And we ALL love Doug. You know you love him- but if you don’t know him I’m about to tell you why you should.

For starters, he practically invented “Photo-bombing”

He’s always had style:

Hell he should have been a model:

He’s the patriarch of THIS family. (I told you, model status.):

He dressed up as THIS for Halloween one year:560054_10202417984710074_1666475611_n

 

He STILL flashes the peace sign (and often):37547_1569619839555_5077930_n

 

He’ll win you THIS many stuffed animals from the claw machine- EVERY TIME:

He leaves notes like these:

If you’re in a bind he will change your diaper; just don’t expect him to put the new one on the right way:

He owned this slide at the age of Fifty-three:

He’ll take you to see ALL the great performers from “his era”:

He tans well. Like real well:

Kid’s love him because he does stuff like this:

And this:IMG_20140213_142213[1]IMG_20140213_145027[1]

 

He’ll take you on a Booze cruise at the age of six- even though he doesn’t drink and you don’t either:

He is the BEST father. EVER:

And the BEST Poppi EVER:

He gets major points for still loving his wife in this the Age of Divorce:DH000035

And he’ll teach you all the “sly” ways to mess up a picture. (Hey, I got better with age!):

IMG_20140213_142314IMG_20140213_142358[1]

 

He’ll work EVERY DAY, even Christmas, to ensure that those he loves are taken care of:

He’s the ONLY person I know who can jump off a diving board, touch his toes, then do a melon. Olympian status:

IMG_20140213_104918[1]

 

He sure knows how to kick back and relax:IMG_20140213_104953[1]

IMG_20140213_144952[1]

 

Hell he’s even mastered the art of sleeping standing up:IMG_20140213_144930[1]

 

He dances. With his mother. Enough said:

(My grandmother and my father. Circa sometime in the late 90's.)

He’s a Yankee’s fan. End of story:

Happy Birthday, Dad. You’re so great in so many ways. It would take a million more of these posts for me to outline all of them. This will have to do. I hope your day was spectacular – just like you! I love you!!! Xoxoxo

 

..And, hey, have you hugged THE Doug today?
