I’ve spent a lot of time this week getting our house ready for John Henry’s birthday celebration. My parents arrived yesterday, and my dad had his list of restaurants he needed to hit before departing the great state of Oklahoma. Daddy Bryan arrives this evening.
We decided to make the weekend a family affair for the most part, and John Henry didn’t seem to mind scaling down his bash as long as Optimus Prime made an appearance on his birthday cake. No, I didn’t ask for Kris’ assistance. The Super Target bakery will do just fine, thank you.
We all get to watch John Henry play his first game of soccer tomorrow morning. It should be a wonderful weekend centered on a tender-hearted, soon to be six-year old.
Not much sweeter than time with family. It’s that kind of love that gives our children a foundation that will weather anything.
“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots. The other is wings.” – Hodding Carter, Jr.
