|Chase, Wally, Richie, and the Cookie-Cake|
My dad didn’t have a sweet-tooth in his body. It was one of those little mysteries in life that was just unfathomable to me, and something I definitely didn’t inherit from him.
As a kid, I thought every birthday party needed a cake. The only problem was that my dad didn’t like cake. So, one year, my brother and I got really creative.
We cooked peanut butter cookies (a family favourite) and we stuck a candle in the biggest one.
My mom dug up this photo for the display she made for the service we had last month. It’s a classic family moment that I wanted to share with all of you.
My dad looks impressed with his birthday surprise. My brother’s expression is hilarious. That was a great day!
I have so many great memories that I will always cherish. This is just one of them.
Dad, you were the best! I miss you so much!
