- Happy Birthday Jace!

Retrospective (9/17)

Patch #247 Two years already?


Original Post

Turning two is a big deal ... 


worthy of a trip to the St Louis Zoo on a day when summer finally loosens its grip ...


A day when ice cream is allowed at 10:30 in the morning ...


and you get to practice for your drivers license in 14 years or so ...


A day for walking and wondering at all there is to see ...


And when you get so tired that you simply can't take another step, there's a big brother to sit down and keep you company ...


Later, after a very, very long nap, there's even cake ...


and presents ...


because turning two is a very big deal.

Happy Birthday to Jace! What a darling boy, just like his brother. Is the dark color on the wall in the last two pictures painted by Don?

Thanks ... birthday message delivered. And yes, the first of two coats. Interesting how different the color looks in the two pictures. The last picture looks green, but the one before is a bit closer to true. A dramatic color that is really making the room pop!
