Tracy Allen - Yesterday and Today

Today is Tracy's birthday!
He is married to Amy, our second child and 2nd daughter.
And he's a very important part of this large family,
this fairly large family,
and this beautiful core family.
I wrote about Tracy in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015; and of course those posts tell you a lot about Tracy and the following pictures will show how he's changed physically 'through the years'.

But now I want to talk about what's been going on in Tracy's life during the previous year.
To begin with, he became a step-grandfather for the 5th time just a little over a year ago.
And he and Amy have spent a lot of time remodeling their bathroom perfectly and now that it's done they're on to their next project - the living room.
His ankle continues to slowly but surely improve after his horrific 2013 fall from a roof which shattered his heel and severely injured his ankle.
And just a couple of days ago was able to hit the driving range for the first time since that injury.
They are also back at Waffle Farm Campground right now for the first time in several years.
Tracy has always been
and continues to be a loving step father
and husband
and step grandfather.
He's helpful, thoughtful, hard-working, and a lot of fun to be around.  And he's very tolerant of my picture-taking even though it makes him self conscious.  We love Tracy and we're happy and proud that he's in our family!  And we're wishing him the happiest birthday EVER and a year full of happiness and lots of good fishing (and vacationing in Gulf Shores)!  Happy Birthday, Tracy!!
