Last night closed the chapter titled "Work Life" for my dad. After 40 years (!!!) at his job, the time came to hang up the hat and embrace a new chapter in life. So many people came out to recognize my dad - what a great party!
We even threw in a little surprise for him.....Dana, Veronica, and the kiddos made a last-minute drive down from Northern Idaho to join the celebration!
Scott, the owner, gave a wonderful speech about my Dad, and presented him with many goodies to carry him into retirement life.
A beer holster!
A beer mug with a bell to ring when the cup is getting a little empty. ;) And a tropical shirt to take on the big trip to Puerto Rico!
What got the biggest laugh was being presented with a new cell phone......you can tell by the way my dad is holding it that he was THRILLED with this gift! ;)
My dad also gave a moving speech....not a dry eye in the house!
And the kiddos had a blast running around and exploring.
Such a fun night. Dad, I'm so excited to see what this next phase in life brings for you. I know for sure there will be many, many adventures......abroad and at home. Can't wait!
