USA Fathers Day Blog Hop with VLVstamps

Welcome to the Viva Las Vegastamps Fathers's Day Blog Hop!



I have been waiting patiently for Fathers day to come around and then something happened! America celebrated their Fathers day ........ three months before we do here in Australia, but I didn't care. DeeDee said it was Fathers day and we were doing a hop. So here it is!!



I don't have very many photos of me with my dad as an adult. he doesn't like photos so it's been avoided for a very long time. but recently my step mum had a very severe stroke and has needed around the clock care just to live each day and my dad's perspective on life has changed drastically (for the better).



So when my sister was down from Sydney for her birthday last October, we went to visit dad and he very enthusiastically posed for a selfie with us. I had to be very quick before he changed his mind (baby steps) but we got the most gorgeous photo ever.
