Today we celebrate my dad’s birthday! Manny shortened grandpa to Pa when he was old enough to say his name, and it’s stuck. It’s hard to sum up all that is my dad. Growing up he could do it all: laundry, putting an addition on our house, sewing the most amazing Halloween costumes, refinishing our attic, baking the best pumpkin log you’ve ever tasted, and doing my hair for my senior prom. Yep, he did it all! And he still does. Happy birthday dad!
