Training wheels no more



HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROB!


It's a big day around here; our son Rob celebrates his 25th birthday today. My stars, where have all the years gone? It seems like only yesterday he was on those training wheels. No need for them now, he's a grown man with a good sense of balance in his life and he's definitely on the right path to success. And I don't mean success in the monetary context, although I think he'll do just fine in that department. I mean success as in having a good life, a happy one. The captain and I are very proud of him and the choices he's made so far in his life. He's all you'd want (and more) in a son. And in less than two weeks he won't be living at home anymore either; he and his girlfriend (the beautiful, funny, kind and all-'round lovely Joanna) have a downtown apartment rented. A place they can call "home".

I'm pretty sure Rob doesn't read this blog, so I can further embarrass him without him knowing it by posting not one picture, but two! The first day of his first trip to the Magic Kingdom at DisneyWorld in Florida. A wonderful vacation, the first road trip to Florida we took as a family. We had a few more; every one good times. Here's to many more -- many more years, and many more family moments! And Rob, if you are reading this .... we love you more than you'll ever know, kiddo!

I love hearing things like this from parents on the other side of the teen years and into the 20s, when you can see the great people your kids have turned into. Happy birthday to Rob! And to you, also!
