Happy Birthday Dad!!!

It is my dad's birthday today! My dad has always been there for me. Here are a couple things that come to mind. When I was gone at college, living in Utah, he would always call and make sure everything was going well. I remember driving home from Utah by myself a couple times and having my dad call every hour to see if I was alright. I thought it was really funny. It meant a lot that he cared so much. I also remember waiting to find out if I got into University of Utah and their ballet program there. My dad couln't wait so he kept calling the chairman of the ballet department to see if I got in. Finally she had answer for him. After he got the answer that I was accepted, him and my mom picked up some balloons, took me out of school and took me to my favorite restaurant for lunch. I remember my mom laughing at him while we were at lunch telling me how he had kept calling the poor chairman. I had no idea.

He is so caring and so supportive. I am so grateful for him and for all he does for our family. He is such a good example to me and I feel so blessed to have him as my dad. Happy Birthday Dad!!!! I love you!!

My sister Annie's birthday was on Monday. She turned 16!! Beware Annie, you are my next blog.

Cooper as a Puppy

I can't believe how fast he has grown. Cooper is almost 6 months old now and we couldn't ask for a better dog. I wanted to post these pictures of Cooper since I didn't have a blog when we first got him. He is the neediest dog but I love it. He follows me everywhere and loves to fall asleep on Grant and I all the time, as you can see in some of the pictures. He is the sweetest dog and we love him!

What a stud muffin. Ladies back off he is taken. This picture always makes me laugh. I see modeling in his future haha. Well today is my man's 24th birthday! We are going to see the movie Knowing, and then we are going to Grant's favorite restaurant Carino's. They have really good Italian food and their bread is really good too. Those of you who know Grant and and his obsession for bread are seeing now why it is his favorite restaurant.

Grant, I just want to let you know that I think you are wonderful in every way. I really hit the jack pot with you. I love you so much and hope you have a wonderful birthday!!!!
