"It was 20 years ago today" +5


Today is our son's 25th birthday.


25 years ago I was a college librarian with faculty status.
The day before he was born, my husband and I participated in graduation, we saw a movie, looked at changing tables, and . . .


The next day I was a mom!
It has been the best "job" I ever had!


Little hands and fingers loved grabbing my long hair, so
within 6 months my hair was as short as it's ever been!


We have a long family tradition of miniature golf.
Here is my husband with our son, age 3 months. As I remember, the baby did not constitute a handicap!


When our son said he'd like to play mini-golf on his birthday, here's where we went.


Feeding the koi at the 18th hole.


Commemorating the day with mom & dad.
Since he's holding the camera out at arm's length and can't see the view finder, I think he's wondering if we are even in the shot.

I'm really glad we got to spend time together today!

Thank you for all your sweet words Marilee! You know exactly what I was talking about I can see! What a charmer. You must be so proud. They DO grow much too fast. . .

Can't wait to see you in November!
