If you would have told me on my 17th birthday what my life would be like today and all that I'd have gone through, I probably wouldn't have believed you. Not at all. Maybe even laughed a bit.
If you would have told me a year ago what my life would be like today, I might have believed. Maybe not. But I would have wanted to. Probably wouldn't have laughed.
Regardless, I have nothing to complain about. Nothing. And I wouldn't change anything from my life, other than maybe my own stupid mistakes or bad decisions.
I am a blessed man. My wife, my kids, my family, my friends, my church, my job, my God - who am I to look up and utter anything other than a humble and inadequate, "Thank you!"
Normally for my birthday I'd like getting a bunch of people together. And I admit it, I'm a present person. No shame. But this time around I just wanted to be low key and spend time with Jeannette and the kids. After a hectic and crazy summer, just a day to wander around the city is what I needed. And that's what I got. It was a fantastic day, incredibly fun.
Here are some of the pics and a vid from my birthday:
|This is my birthday present from Baylee. So I can wear it when we play the game together.|
|About 3 seconds before I got tackled|

|Jaxon thought the bean was the coolest thing ever.|
|True story: Baylee picked up her brother, the guy threw the ball, Jaxon caught it while being held up.|
|This dude let Jaxon play catch with him & his kids. Jaxon showed them all up.|
|That silhouette in the middle of the pic is Jeannette climbing over the fence to stop Jaxon from jumping in|

|Jaxon! Stop and take a picture!|

|Strike a pose|
