He sounds like a wonderful free spirit. Many happy returns of the day to him!


That is such an interesting group of guys in that one shot, and I love that the one guy is holding an apple juice (not the typical beer!). Now I am going to make myself very unpopular if he does read this... but his girlfriend (at least in that shot) looks like SB! Hope his birthday was great!

Love.this.post! He is someone to be proud of! No plastic water bottles??? I agree 100%!!!! It has been so cool to watch him go from water polo/surfer kid to mountain man.


Congrats to MVP re: his upcoming graduation and already having a job! And congrats to you and your husband for raising another awesome peep!

You've launched an incredible young man, that's for sure. Congrats to MVP for his many good choices and good fortune in life!

Snow is a great thing! :)


Give him 15 years. He'll be asking for your blog address, wanting to go back and see what others were seeing, remember what others were memorializing, feel what his beloved mum was feeling...

I like him so much.

Happy Birthday to your (mainly)mountain man. He's a cutie!
