55. & a picture overload

TODAY is my dad's BIRTHDAY! I would have to say I'm a daddys girl for sure. He has always been there for me no matter what and I know that he loves us kids so much. We are super close and I am so so so grateful I got to have him as MY dad. :) Happy birthday, here's to 55, a year that will be oh so good to you! You always deserve the very best, dad!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

For his birthday, we planned a surprise party with my siblings, their kids, and his sister! My dad loves food so we decided to go to a pizza place that had one of those food challenges. The challenge was you have 1 hour to eat a 24" pizza. That is 2 feet, people! Obviously dad was more than ready for this "challenge" haha Growing up (...and still) my eyes are always bigger than my stomach and I always get way too much food. When I lived at home, dad would be the one who finished up my plate for me.  Dad have never met a food he didn't like (besides brussel sprouts, bleh) 





The last piece of his huge pizza. By now, he was struggling because he had already eaten SO much food!! He was so determined to finish and win the challenge. 




The last of the pizza! He was so close but eating all that pizza in 1 hour was just too much food!


Chris, my brother, also tried the pizza challenge and almost finished. The boys with their remaining pizza and huge biceps ;) 


The only group photo we got haha I asked this lady to take the picture of our group but she didn't really understand when I explained how to use my camera so she didn't get any pictures for us. This picture is a result of me trying to teach her how to take a picture. 




This is probably my favorite picture of us together! It really catches his smile and personality! Plus, having him be so much apart of our wedding day was such a special experience for both of us :) He was a witness who signed the marriage certificate and of course the daddy daughter dance had us both in tears. 



yup, both of us crying like babies during the daddy daughter dance. Dad LOVES the beatles. Like #1 fan and has always made it known he loves their music so I surprised him with the song "In My Life" by the Beatles for our special dance :)


I love you dad! here's to 55!

  9. First of all, you weren't kidding when you said your dad looks like David A. Bednar....Like seriously, if Bednar ever needs a decoy, your dad has him covered!

    Second, I love "In My Life" by the Beatles! What a perfect song for a daddy-daughter dance :)

  12. Oh my gosh, that pizza challenge sounds awful! Only because I think it would be enough to make me not want pizza again for a year (which would be heart breaking since I want that right now at 6:30am, HA HA!) Your dad put up a good fight though... he was SO CLOSE!
    These wedding pictures are the sweetest!!!
