A Cadillac Dad

It is Mike's birthday today!
He is the husband of Dennis' daughter Kris.

We call him the Cadillac Dad. If his kids are anywhere around him, they are on him, over him, playing with him. I remember when Jessica and Katie were tiny, Mike would be in our pool with them for HOURS at a time. Then he would come inside, change them, play with them some more, feed get the picture.

Jessica, Rachel, Mike, Jacob and Katie in front.

Mike is so incredibly easy going, so fun to be with.
We love you Mike and we know your family will give you such a nice birthday today!

Check out this very short video. Kris filmed it back in June. Mike was just getting back from a business trip. Do you think his family was excited to see him, or what?

Happy Happy Birthday Mike!!! We miss you!! We all think that you would be the ultimate DAD of the year if you brought all of your kids to California to swim and play some more! :) hint hint! Hope you have a super day.

That feels so good when your kids are awaiting your arrival and are so excited to see you. I haven't met Mike yet but he sounds like an awesome Dad!! I hope Mike has a very Happy Birthday!!

Wait a minute...Mike's not really that good. I mean he's slightly better than mediocre...well, kinda.

Just KIDDING Mike.

Mike really is awesome. He's one of the few that has a goofy sense of humor like mine. He's a great husband to my daughter and a great Dad to my grandchildren. And he's also a good friend to me. Happy Birthday Mike.

What a great post! He is truly blessed to have his kids love him so much, but they're blessed to have such a dad, and they're blessed to have a mom who taught them to show their feelings and appreciation. This is wonderful on many levels. Love, Dad and Susan
