This is the third time I've celebrated his birthday in blog.
Here's the first time,
and here's the second time.
Then there was the motorcycle trip with the family in June.
Seen below attempting to sacrifice his children on a Stonehenge replica.
What can I say, there is some stress involved in traveling with children.
He's had an interesting year. He just celebrated a year at his job, quite the change from the military. He has survived 17 years with me, an amazing feat of strength and flexibility. He managed to squeeze a couple thousands miles of motorcycling in this year, and a lot of those were with the full entourage which is no small feat.
He hardly missed any of Thing One's baseball games, even with his insane commute. he also managed to take the Things fishing a lot, and he reads to them almost every night. He is really a good daddy.
He's a pretty good husband too, fun and interesting to talk with, understanding and supportive, and more often bemused than bemoaning.
Yup, he's mostly an all around amazing guy.
Happy birthday, baby, I love you!
