Happy Fathers Day Dad

Can you believe even at my age (which isn't that old) my Dad is still my hero !!

Dad celebrated his 70th Birthday last weekend and we had the most Wonderful Party for him.

My Precious Son wrote this beautiful speech for the Party and read it out in front of a room full of people...

My Grandad

If you think we are cool you should see my Grandad

He is the best Grandad in the whole World

He takes us camping all the time

Teaches us how to fish

Shows us how to play golf


how to care for the garden and grow plants

Best of all he loves us

and we love him !!!
Love and Hugs

your Grandsons.

and to Mr LSH ( Long Suffering Husband) thank you for being a Wonderful Father to our Children ~ I love the way you nurture their young minds and love them so unconditionally....

Happy Fathers Dad
