birthday time!

a very merry birthday to my dad!

over his life he has been many things: 
a state trooper, a tornado chaser, a pastor, a lawyer, a judge, a teacher and an undercover drug agent to name a few.  growing up he taught me to handle a gun, think for myself, drive our rugged stick shift jeep through the mountains, and to always stick with good ethics even if that didn't correlate with the law.  someday i'll have to share his awesome stories with you - he was quite the mischievous teenager. 

{from my wedding last year}

thanks dad for everything you taught me, 
and have a happy birthday!
