It feels like this was just yesterday...

so I think I'll pretend that it was.

When we started planning this "let's get outta here one last time before school starts" trip, I called it a win-win for everybody. Golf for Jim, the beach for me, and Disney for them. We planned a different route than we normally take to Orlando, booked a one-night stay in Ponte Vedra Beach, and Jim set up a tee time to play eighteen holes at TPC Sawgrass. It's the course that hosts The Players Championship every May, so without question it made his bucket list of "must play here"'s.

The day after we arrived, he spent the entire morning with his own personal caddy.

we've been here. we've been there. {ponte vedra beach, fl}

A little pit stop on our way to see the Mouse, and now I'm simply obsessed with Jax beaches. There were families and dogs and paddleboards in the ocean, seashells for daaaays, the same was so packed you could ride a bike on it, and the sunset left the moon in the blue sky then transitioned to pink then to purple right on the horizon. Sooo so pretty.

Had I known I would have planned better, but after I took off his black Star Wars t-shirt it all just worked, and I love this lovin' moment.

Today is my dad's sevenieth birthday, and this is how cool he is.

When I called him this morning to give him happy wishes, he said he was thinking about changing the ring tone on his phone for the day to sing "Happy Birthday" to him every time someone called him, and he said he was trying to decide what kind of wine to tell his airplane-building partner in crime he'd like for him to bring him so he could kick off his plan to drink, gamble, and chase women.

He's obvioulsy one...full of it and two...taking the seventy bull by the horns.

Happy Birthday to my witty, non-alcoholic, penny-saving, monogomous, AH-mazing, Dad! I love him so much it hurts.

Still holding down the rewind button...I realized when I got the hard prints in the mail just recently, that I never posted all of these here.

I think I probably had the pattern and fabric for his cape for nine months before I made it - a case of better-late-than-never without a doubt. My Parks is everything it stands for - fierce, bold, brave, oh so super - and he's been wearing it like he stole it ever since.

if I could be a bubble I would be one of theirs.

and I would wait anxiously for the minute they would blow me away.
