I started out Jake's birthday by managing to have his diploma run over by a Ford F-250. Cheap Target glass took most of the hit. Emmi started yelling "DAD DAD MOM RUINED YOUR BIRTHDAY!" when he got home. She meant to say Birthday Present. I took it to have it professionally framed...but I made a rookie mistake of taking my two children to a custom framing shop. The rest of the story is just a mess.
JUST A MESS.
I made it all up to him by purchasing him the
actual frame he wanted from BYU (and a brand new diploma) and baking a magnificent cake and
drum roll....WEARING SOMETHING OTHER THAN EXERCISE SHOES AND JEANS to dinner. Ah the little things in life :)
His little children ADORE him and they adoringly sang to him for his Birthday; off key and dinosaur screaming and all :). Love you buddy!
