Sixty and still surfing

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Happy Birthday to my awesome Dad who turned 60 today!

The kids took great pleasure in making him special birthday cards... Master 9's card had a flip-o-rama picture (cheesy animation technique) of Poppa jumping up, Master 7's card had a special blank page (labelled "DRAW") just for Poppa to draw a picture on, and Miss 4 drew a beautiful card with rainbows and cut out hearts and stars stored inside... and a map - just the sort of cards Poppa's need!

Dad still is as passionate about surfing as when he was young, so what could be more fitting to celebrate his birthday than posting a few more of the classic (ex-slide) photo's a mate of his had been sending us over from Canada of Dad on a surf trip around New Zealand in the 60's. I just love the New Zealand landscape and beaches (and the classic cars)!

Love you Dad xox
