Guess Who Has A Birthday???

Kevin, that's who!!!!! Tomorrow will be my husband's 25th birthday, and I just wanted to wish him a happy one, even though I am a day early. It is impossible to forget Kev's birthday, because he was born on 4/5/67. Get it...4,5,6,7???? Oh wait, I thought he was only 25??? LOL!!!! Won't you join me for a little trip down memory lane.....


Below is an approximately 9-10 year old Kevin, hunting some poor little animal on his cousins' old dairy farm in Deer Park (shout out to Stephanie!!!) I think it was a groundhog or something cute and furry like that.
Next, and this is one of my favorites, we have an 11-12 year old Kevin, hosing off the udder (and grabbing a teat!!) on one of the cows at his cousins old dairy farm. I love the mischievous look on his face. You can just hear him saying "Haha!! I am touching it's NIPPLE!!!!" Boys...they never change, do they??? LOL!!!!Hubba, hubba!!! What do we have here???? How about a 17 year old Kevin (on the left in the WSU cap) looking all tough and hot...I mean handsome!!! This is from a newspaper article (we have hundreds of them!) that was about an upcoming football game showdown, between Kevin and this other guy from a rival school (they were both the QB's).
Just so you all know, I never knew Kevin back then. I was nine, and living in Illinois...lol!!!! Hey...what happened to all of his hair???? This is a picture of my hubby on our wedding day, and this is the man that I fell in love with. (See honey??? I can be sweet....sometimes...lol!!!) ...And last but not least, we have a picture of Kevin and Eric, both hunting in Deer park again. It appears that he has passed that rifle down to Eric now, doesn't it???? Oh well...what's a mother to do????Anyway, I hope that your day is grand, and that we spend many more together!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! (Tomorrow!!!!)

*********Now that Kevin has seen this post, he said that the first picture is not in Deer Park, rather it is in Okanogan, at his dairy farming cousins' friends' ranch. Trust me...I was just as confused by the Angus cattle on a dairy farm as you were...lol!!!!**********************

What fun to look back on old photos!

Sorry to hear about your mishap. I hope you don't lose your toenail, unless it helps to relieve some of the pain and heals faster.

Thanks for your well wishes re: my Mom's visit....she's only here for one night, so I think I'll get through. I'll be doing lots of deep breathing though, I think.

Oops....wrong woman! Your toe is just fine, I'm guessing....sorry, 'bout that. :o)))
