HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID! Feb. 23


Happy birthday Dave. Mom and I are very happy that you are in Utah with Sue and Cam and having contact with your family after being away for too long. Welcome back! We hope all is going well with your job search and training and stuff. Boy, it was fun going through a photo album and seeing all your baby pictures and pictures with you and Ben and Amy. You were such a cute kid and sooo active! You were into everything. Some golf pictures of you and I at Spyglass Hill. Fun times. I still remember you shooting like a 74 at Spyglass when you were 17. Anyway, here are a few of the better pics of you growing up.


This pic speaks for itself


You and Midge and a bottle. So many of our pictures of you are with an animal of some sort. Dogs, ducks, fish, kittens. You always have had a tender heart for the furry creatures.


Dave with either Zipper or Buttons. (notice! Don't ever have pet ducks around the house or yard.)

On a boat with a fish...

Sand dunes in Utah on his ATC three-wheeler. He was a fearless rider.

Dave, mom and Matt. Notice the Harley springer-softtail and the VW Baja Bug in the background. Dave is about 19 with a Jim Morrison T shirt.

Love you, Dave. Hope you have a happy time. Love, kisses. Dad and Mom

Happy Birthday Dave! I wish I could be there tonight to celebrate your Birthday. I have so many good memories of you while we were growing up. I've always been glad you're my brother. Hope to see you soon. Have a great day. Love, Amy

Happy birthday Dave! HAHAHA on that pic of you and mom! (and the hair) and also, do I want to know what is all over Dave in that first picture??

One funny memory I have of Dave is when Rob and I got married, we were opening the wedding cards and there was one from Dave and it was so cute. It had these little cartoon animals (bunnies or something) dressed in little clothes around a big cake, it looked like a card like mom picks out. Anyway, Rob and I got a kick out of it and needless to say, it was the last thing Rob expected from Emily's brother he had just met that rode in on his Harley.

Happy birthday! Much love big bro.

Happy birthday Dave! Hope it's a good one. I think I remember when this picture was taken. But what I remember for sure is being so excited to ride in that white bug one cold morning. I was SOOO excited to go for a ride with my big brother in his cool loud car.

Great post Dad! If Dave wasn't sitting in my living room right now they would make me cry.

Happy Birthday Dave!

I can't tell you what is all over Dave in that picture. It does look a little stomach turning, but I thing it is harmless food. He got in the tolet twice before we got the picture the next day or two. He thought he was so smart playing in the water. Good times raising kids.
