Bring on the Cake

Next Monday is our son, Jimmy's, 26th birthday!
Bring on the CAKE!


We are so proud of Jimmy! He joined the Army the summer before his Senior year in high school and spent the entire summer at basic training. Came back for his Senior Year and left the day he graduated to to go AIT.


He loves motorcycles - always has. He started riding his first bicycle when he was just 2 years old, and his first motorcycle between 5 and 7 years old.


He has a fun, loving spirit! 


This is my favorite picture of him. He's sitting in our front yard on his motorcycle - hasn't put on his helmet yet.

He's my hero!
Here's the birthday card I made for him:
