"These two," the mum-of-two wrote. "Today is August 4th-The birthdays of my wonderful mom and one of my crazy, goofy, dearest friends Susan-both pictured here; it's ALSO the birthday of my amazing, larger than life dad. 

Lara continued: "I close my eyes and can see him clear as day-beer in hand, giant smile on his face. We miss and celebrate you today and everyday big Daddy-o.

"I imagine you are chugging with someone very cool up there right about now. Having the same birthday as mom always made the party twice as special and a million times more fun. 

"To Susan and mom-I hope this is the best one yet; And to all the August 4 babies out there, Happy birthday on this very special day. #Iloveleos."
