John, Jr.s Birthday
It's somewhat strange to notice one day that your little boy isn't so little anymore. You so easily remember him looking like this
or even like this
but you can't for the life of you get a grip on when the years flew by and he began to look like this ~
and then to realize he's celebrating his 26th birthday?? The confusion is compounded by the fact that you still feel like you're 29! Well, maybe 35, but not a day older!
We got to celebrate John's birthday at his favorite place in the world--the beach!
Sharon brought him presents from her...
This one was my favorite. Can you guess what this is??
Why, parasailing, of course. Get it?? A sail boat on a pear! So creative! They are going to go parasailing.
We went out to eat at Provision and had a great time. We had a strange encounter there. The restaurant had a man there playing the guitar and singing. John, Sr and Elijah were watching him while we waited to be seated. He looked at Elijah and said, "I remember you from last year. Is your sister here with you?" I thought it was quite interesting that he remembered Elijah from a year ago?? We did recall being there a year ago and watching him sing.
After dinner, we had cake and ice cream.
Layne tested Mimi's chocolate cake.
and declared it pretty doggone good! (yup, the grandbaby doesn't fall far from the grandma)
Happy Birthday to my oldest boy! We love you more than you'll ever know!
