Our timing was not always the best! We also were expecting a baby around the middle of the month...we were hoping that he/she would choose a convenient time to arrive in the midst of our very busy season. All was in place for an early start to the workday on July 9th...and then our second son chose to make his arrival quickly...before things got into full swing.
Jeremy Michael was born at 7:30 that morning...determined not to miss a thing! Funny, he's always liked to be in on the action! So, for thirty-three years we have had cause to celebrate on July 9th.
A few things have changed since this picture was taken, July 9, 2006...but everyone's still smiling.
Since Tim (SIL) has joined the family, we have double the reason to have a party on July 9th. Yup...he also has a birthday today! So we usually throw a family birthday party...and the boys get to share a cake.
The sun is shining...and we're off to the beach for our party tonight. I'm thinking a Lemon Layer Cake with Raspberry Curd and Whipping Cream may not be the ideal cake for taking on a picnic in warm temperatures...but it is a yummy recipe and can be found at epicurious.com if you are interested.
Two special birthday guys...best of friends and brothers-in-law...both with a wicked sense of humour...today we celebrate you!
