Mike Has A Birthday!

He’d rather not talk about it but this year was the big 30 for Mike. The good news is he did survive his birthday and if you ask me life doesn’t seem all that much different from when he turned 29. He might say something different though... :-)

This year is just flying right by. It’s almost June and I’m so slow that I’ve just recently posted Christmas pictures. Hopefully I’ll soon be caught up and staying up to date on a more regular basis. That is the long term short term goal anyway…

So far 2012 has brought -

One last time of babysitting Melissa before she and her parents(our friends) moved away. Miss this little sweetheart and her family…
