Happy Birthday Dad!

Graffitti

You might not know it from his art, but my dad has a sweet tooth.  He’ll order the blueberry pancakes, choose the pecan pie and eat the candy corn.  If there is one thing I have most obviously inherited from him, it’s my taste buds.  Pass the peanut butter, the umami laden foods and nearly-black coffee.  You want him around if you’re going out for indian; he’ll have an idea what everything on the menu will look or taste like.  Then he’ll proceed to tell you about his trip to India CENSORED years ago.  He can also flip a pancake like no one’s business.

It’s my dad’s birthday tomorrow and, while I’m not  there to make him any pumpkin pie or pecan pie, I can send some love from afar.  Happy Birthday Dad!

silly faces

silly voices
