Happy 70th Birthday, Dad

I know I use this picture every time I write about my Dad but it is an awesome picture taken on one of the most pleasant and happy days of my life. We were at Carter Caves State Park in Kentucky for a Boggs Family get together. It was miserably hot that day so we went down to the creek.

There is a cave just to the right of this picture and we could feel the cool air from the cave. The water was cold and only a couple of inches deep. We took a 50 piece bucket of KFC and our lawn chairs into the creek and had the best lunch in the history of the world. (Slight exaggeration possible but only very slight.)

We ate fried chicken, drank bottled water, munched on potato chips and threw the chicken bones in the woods. What a day. What a memory. What a picture to capture it all.

But since I always post that picture, here is another one of dad with all of his children and grandchildren except for the number two son and his lovely wife and daughter. (Oops. Odie pointed out that Steve's wife Karen is also not in the picture. Must have been grilling hot dogs.) This was taken today (Monday) in the cemetery in Corwin. This is Dad at his happiest, surrounded by family.

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 28th my Dad will be 70 years old. We are so thankful that God has blessed our family to keep Dad with us until this day. We hope to have him around for many more years to come.

Happy Birthday Dad! I hope you have a wonderful day. I think it is easier to be 1000 miles away on special days like this than it is to be only 3 1/2 hours away like we are today. By God's grace we will see you next week. Until then, please know that we love you and appreciate you so very much. Have a super great day!

Davy, Kelly and Odie
