Happy Father's Day!!! (Mr. B's dad & voovoo)

Mr. B is the 4th generation born in Hawaii of Portuguese descent. His dad was a career police officer in Hilo, Hawaii. He was an amazing carpenter and was such a softie at heart. My husband and his brother and sisters have so many stories to tell. :o) I'll have to have him write some of them down. His mom was a seamstress and made their matching outfits... I love it!

His mom's dad (Voovoo~Portuguese for Grandpa) is one of 22 children! None of them were multiple births! He lived many years in Hawaii, but eventually moved to San Luis Obispo, California. I met him right after Mr. B and I got married and stopped to visit him and Grandma Florence on our way to Hawaii. He was an amazing gardener. I remember him smoking his pipes and making us a pot roast. (oh another thing I found amazing-even as he got older, his hair stayed dark, with just a little gray in his moustache.)

These were taken after the youngest was born in 1969. She was born on July 4th... Mr. B was born on December 25th! Celebration babies :o)

Good morning, sorry I haven't stopped by, it has been so busy I can't find time to even post most days unless I have them prescheduled.
I love the photos of your's and Mr. B's Daddies and Granddaddies. Mr B was and is still a very good looking man. And he sounds like a great husband and Dad. Thanks for sharing.
Promise I'll be back, things are slowing down some right now.
