Flashback Friday #30

Today's Flashback Friday Theme is about Fathers! Father's Day is right around the corner... and unfortunately, I won't be able to spend it with my dad. I will see him Saturday though when we go on a "Volkswagen Cruise"... so I'm looking forward to that!

I rummaged through my pictures and realized that I don't have any from when I was really small. They are all at my parents house in their photo albums. I did find several to share though! (Please don't mind the crappy quality because I took pics of the pics)

I don't know if this was a school pic or what... but it's cute!!

Definitely a school pic... maybe junior high?

This might be his senior pic... but I'm not sure!

I think it's kind of creepy that my mom's face is totally covered by that lady's hair!!

This was on our vacation to Sea World in Ohio. I think I was in 5th grade here (notice my lovely scrunched/rolled socks! hahahaha).

This was at my birthday one year... I think my 20th!
(Mandie... LOL... my dad's shirt!)

This pic is from my wedding in May '09!

My dad is one of the only people I really look up to. I am like him in a lot of ways... some by chance, some on purpose. We have similar tempers (we hold it in until we blow!). He was always a good role model... having never done drugs, drank, smoked... and I strived (and succeeded!) to be like him! I used to try to write like him when I was a kid (I did pretty good too... although it wasn't hard since it was pretty much chicken scratch!).
Now that I live an hour away, I always look forward to my trips back home (usually once a week) and always make sure that I give him a hug and tell him I love him before I leave.

I Love You, Dad!

Head over to Christopher&Tia's to share your flashback... or browse others!!


  1. Great photos! Love his shirt in the first pic, haha to great =) Have fun celebrating with him!

  2. OMG, that first pic is completely awesome! I wish I had some old pics that were that interesting :) Your Dad looks like such a lively guy, I bet it's fun to be his daughter.

  3. Your dad is such a sweetheart, and everytime I make nobakes, I think of him, and how good he's been to our family. I totally recognize his Senior picture (Class of '77!), and what a handsome young man!

  4. Great post! My favorite picture is the one on your wedding day :) Very cute!

  5. How sweet I love all the pictures. My Daddy also rights in chicken scratch but I think it is because he is a lefty.

  6. He looks a happy guy. The kind of guy that you feel comfortable around, no matter what.

    And omg, the cowboy picture, heee heee.

  7. I'm so thankful for a husband that has been so dedicated to his family. Often, that meant working too much to provide for us all but I know that his heart is tucked right in the middle of our family.

    I love the little cowboy pic... have since I first saw it. But then again, I love any picture with Dusty in it! He has blessed me so much... and part of that has been through being your dad, Devon!

  8. That is very sweet. I love the old pictures. :) It's such a blessing to have a great father.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what you have to say!
