* Happy Birthday *

To my Dad...J.Coff...Father John...John-Boy

The Best Dad and soon-to-be Best Grandpa in the World

Along with 35 of my Dad's nearest and dearest friends and family, Megs and I (with the help of some of our parents friends) threw our Dad a surprise birthday party on Saturday. For anyone that knows our Dad, they know that he is a modest man that would never want to be the center of attention especially to celebrate him. Thankfully, this surprise went off without a hitch and he was shocked when he walked through the door. The evening turned out to be perfect. Everyone that was there to celebrate with us holds a special place in my Dad's heart and I'm thankful that they were all there to celebrate this amazing guy.

Happy Birthday John-Boy...hope you enjoyed your day off today. We Love You!

Thank you to JOAT for the fabulous cupcakes and thank you to Steve for finding the half pint carton's of milk (my Dad loves milk...especially with dessert so it was only fitting to serve it with the cupcakes).

That was very nice of you and I love the picture collage of your dad when he was young...he looks like he could have been an ATO when we went to collage. You are the sweetest daughter. The milk and cupcakes were great touches.
