Happy Birthday Oldest

We're having Croque Monsieurs and ice box cake at his request.
He's invited his grandmothers for dinner.
He's the most loyal, faithful, passionate friend and brother.
He works hard every day to be a good son.

He's our Star Wars fanatic, guitar-playing, tattooed man - and we love him.

At church, 2004.


Snorkeling with his brothers, 2005.

I seem to be missing photos for a few years, but he is all of these things.

He does some sweet tattoo work. 2011.


He's always helpful if you need something moved, lifted, painted, fixed. 2012.


He's got some tattoos from his tattoo hero. 2014.


He's one of the hardest workers I know.

Happy day, Oldest - from all of us.
