80... Happy Birthday Dad

 Today we celebrated my Dad's 80th Birthday
 This guy still works out at the heath club everyday, 
he likes to search for treasures while metal detecting, and...

  he frequents many car shows with his 1965 Ford Mustang

Today was all about my dad, a gentle soul who has instilled in us the importance of 
The four of us kids (and spouses) were able to celebrate with dad today 
along with many of his grand and great-grand children. 
Mom recently had hip surgery and was released from rehab today just in time to celebrate too! 

He is the Patriarch of the "Erickson" family 
 we feel lucky and blessed to still have him with us!
Happy Birthday Dad, We love you!!!


  1. Happy 80th birthday to your dad. He sounds like a wonderful man. But I am not surprised. He does not look at all to be eight decades old. I'm so glad your family celebrate this special day for a special man. Love the Mustang!

    1. It was good to gather in honor of dad, he is a pretty great guy!
