Today would have been my daddy's 73rd birthday. WOW! This year will mark the 10 year anniversary of his death. My daddy was a hard working family man. He loved life and he loved his family. I have so many fun memories of our family life. I am number six of seven children and I remember anytime us kids would fight my daddy would make us KISS and make up! It was horrible at the time now when I think about it it's hilarious! Hey, maybe I should make my girls kiss and make up! I'm sure they'd love that! Every summer for our vacation we would visit my grandparents. They lived in Reno, Nevada when I was very young and we would load up the station wagon and my parents would spend a few days driving our family to see our grandparents. In the 80's my grandparents moved to the panhandle of Florida and we would drive there every summer. My grandparents passed away in the early 90's but our family still travels to the Navarre, Ft. Walton, Destin area for our family vacations. Oh, how I miss him. I wish he could have met Craig, Kayleigh, Maddie and Fletcher. I talk to my kids about him because I want them to know about Papa Bud. He would have loved them all so much!
