Happy Birthday Dad

This upcoming weekend is Father's Day and we have a double reason to celebrate our dad, David, as it's also his birthday TODAY!

Our dad married our mom 29 years ago and together they have raised all 8 of us as well as countless foster children and friends who came for a night or extended visits - and some who never seem to leave. Our dad is the best! He's hardworking, a good husband, teaches us about life and God, and knows how to have fun!
One of his favorite summer pastimes, when he's able to take a break from working, is taking us out on his boat. We have so many great memories of sailing and fishing with him. He also loves to ride his motorcycle and his favorite bike partner is our mom, Lillian. 
He's the kind of dad who actually gets you the pony you asked for at Christmas, or who can build you a whole house! He's remodeled and renovated both our house and our soap factory on his own. He built an entire barn in time for Derek and Jaklyn's wedding on the farm. He's passing these skills onto our brothers who are also able to help out around the farm. 
He is also an amazing grandpa to Daisy and her soon to be baby sibling as well as Ava and Ellie. When he pulls into the farm after work, you will see the kids yelling for him and racing to be the first to give him a hug.
