It’s a special today for us….it’s the big man’s birthday!  We will celebrate with a family dinner, some cards, laughter, will relive funny times together and make new memories.
So, Happy Birthday, my Irishman….born on 3/17 at 3:17.
You are smart, funny, a wonderful husband, and a great example of what a dad should be.  We love you and are so thankful that you are in our lives.
