Happy Birthday Uncle Ernie!

Today is my Uncle Ernie's birthday. Ernie has lived with my parents most of my life so I am really close to him. I just want him to know how much I love him. Down below are my top 5 reasons why I love him.

#5- He is a hard worker and is dedicated to whatever project he is working on. It has been an example to me.

#4- He loves motorcycles and has shared that love with us as a family through talking about his motorcycles and buying motorcycles for us to ride. What a blast! When my siblings and I were young, he bought us kids a little green 70 dirt bike. I would ride that bike all day during the summer in our yard. My parent's yard is pretty good size.

#3- I love how patient and easy going he is. I hardly ever hear him complain.

#2- I love the memories as a child where he would take my siblings and I out for walks or run errands with him. It was fun. We always went to R.C. Willey to pay on his bill. Us kids would go around the store and make believe that certain setups were our rooms, living rooms and kitchens. He also would always take us to get a treat. One of the most memorable ones is the crocodile heads made out of doughnuts and cream. Yummy!

The #1 reason I love my uncle is that he is my uncle and loves to spend time with me.

Happy Birthday Ernie!! I love you!!

By the way, the picture of him above was last September at Disneyland. It was his first time there.

What a great tribute! I'm glad that you have had those experiences with him in your home growing up! I'm sure all of you are a blessing to him as well!

I want to go to Disneyland! :)
