The Boy is Twenty!

Our baby boy is 20 years old today. We can not believe it. 20 first days of summer ago. 14 days past his due date. Even then he didn’t want to leave his Mama.

Look at that chubby Boy!

He was a solid chunk of a Buddy Bear.

At 2, he was all about Barney and Baby Bop.

At 3, I was all about insisting he use the potty.

At 5 he was all boy.

At 9, in his beloved dump hat from Mackinac Island and Godzilla t-shirt. He loves his family.

Always a goof, ESPECIALLY with his Daddy.

With our very unadventurous kitty, Indiana Jones. Shortened to Indi, so he wouldn’t bring shame to the Adventurous One. The Boy loves our cats. I think always having a cat has made him gentle. Always a good quality in a man.

With his Great Grandma Hoover. He was gentle with her too. She lived to be 97.


He is good to his sisters. He has no choice, he is outnumbered, and for most of his life, Abby could take him.

IMG (24)

He is a good nephew and Grandson. He cares about his People.

With his “spry” Uncle Bob.


Classic Boy.


Loves to fish, and is darn good at it.


He is a self proclaimed, A #1, Mama’s Boy, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.


I can’t even tell you how much joy he has brought to our lives. Happy Birthday to our one and only, precious, FUNNY Boy.

We are so proud of you and you are very much loved!
