{oh happy day}

today is my husband's birthday! right now he's on his way home from the airport with his mom. she made the spur-of-the-moment decision to come from kansas to surprise him on this milestone birthday. twenty-five. finally old enough to rent a car from any company without a problem. odd that it takes that long but it does. we know. we always have to "shop around" when we travel. anyhow, she sent me this photo of alex (from the same day as this photo that i am so fond of) around our anniversary this year. her gift to us was so incredibly thoughtful. she bought us a kite and wrapped it up in paper she made from copies of this very photograph. only his dad is in it too but i cropped him out because it's not his birthday. :) i am looking forward to us both having the day of tomorrow (today) and spending time with his mom. let the festivities begin...
happy birthday, alex.
i love you.

Yes, indeed, his mom is the sweetest! That's really great that she'll share the day with you guys.
Those are such cute blonde baby photos..I love 'em! Say "Happy Birthday" to him from us! Enjoy your special day!
25 to rent a car? That's a first for me to hear...I learn something new everyday.
