Happy Father's Day!

Happy father's day dad! I went through my photos from the past few years and pulled up some good ones to celebrate the day. My dad is one of the most generous people I know. He is always there to help others and is a constantly inspiring me to be more generous with my time and energy. He has always been there to set a good example for the six of us and we appreciate it all the time, but especially on father's day.

Here is a good photo - this is how much banana pudding we were able to convince my dad to try at New Year's. Notice that it consists of 1 nilla wafer and a little whipped cream. My dad doesn't eat fruit (bananas included). I think that is pretty funny.

My grandmother memaw lived with us for many years before she passed away. Here is my dad in 1981 with my mom's mom (we called her memaw). Notice the characteristic white linen suit.

Here is a cute father daughter pic taken at the wedding of a good friend (Tracy). He drove all the way out to the very furthest suburbs of New Orleans to pick me up so I wouldn't have to drive. All through high school Tracy and I had joint birthday parties, so my dad came in to say congrats.

Here is my dad with two of his brothers - John on the left and Jim on the right. His brother Joe passed away a few years ago. This photo was taken after a post-Christmas trip to Galatoire's a few years ago.

Somehow my parents have managed to stay sane after raising SIX kids. This photo was taken about 2 years ago. The biggest difference is now Patrick is literally a foot taller - and is now the tallest one in the family.

No father's day post would be complete without mentioning my brother and his sweet baby girl - now two years old.

Happy father's day to all dads and dads-to-be!
