Look Who's 28!!!

My son, Mathew, turned 28 yesterday.  It's just so hard for me to believe he's that age.  I remember me at that age and it doesn't seem like that long ago...

Mathew and me about 3 years ago visiting wine country in Napa Valley

(This picture was taken about 4 years ago)

My sister thought it would be cool to play a joke on me so

she took this picture of Mathew with his arm in a tattoo sleeve.

I thought it was real and
 called him in about
two seconds flat and asked him:

 "What the heck were you thinking???"

He asked what I was talking about....

I said, "Your arm looks awfully decorated!"

He says, "Doesn't it look great!?"

He didn't tell me it was a tattoo sleeve for a few minutes....

Then he told me it was my sister's idea!!!

Well, this is one of many things I love about him....

He can make me laugh...

Mathew, Happy Birthday!


P.S.  It's not that I don't like tattoos.  It's just that one!  I know he has a couple but nothing like that one on his arm.

Congratulations! You barely look a few years over 28. You had him when you were 6?

Enjoy this day of remembering all the great times of the last 28 years.
