  1. Aw! I forgot he is one of the many people I know with a March 15th birthday (my mom and my good friend Gina being the main ones I do remember.) What is it about the Ides of March? 🙂 This is a wonderful list and makes me even fonder of him. I remember the first time I met him I was afraid he was one of “those dads” who was sort of a grump. I have learned more about him and seen him grow in the last seven years so that I know he is one of “those dads” that kids are lucky to have! 🙂 Happy, happy birthday Papa Bear.

    That is so sweet! It made me cry!
